Awesome HI Hat

So after reading several horrible reviews on the Alesis Pro x Hi Hat I was a little skeptical about purchasing it. But not having the feel of a real hi hat was starting to wear on my playing so I figured if it sucks, sweetwater will always allow me to return it. Let me just say that it is totally worth the purchase. Works as described with no issues what-so-ever! Updating the dm10 with the new firmware was trouble free and calibration was a snap! Now my kit has the feel I been looking for!

Pro-x Hi Hat

I had no problems my dm-10 module has been updated it was plug and play you have to fiddle with the hight between the cymbals also important is i got an adjustable tama stand you have to mess with the tension I've got mine on 2 i sounds so much better than the stock pedal so many bad reviews scared me but sweetwater is great and phillip Courtney said if it didnt work i could send it back the more adjustable stand you have would be best and patience adjusting it lol

Tips for Setting up Alesis Pro X Hi-Hat with Addictive Drums 2

After many hours of frustration, I finally got the Alesis Pro X hi-hat dialed in (calibrated) to a real feel. Here's what I did, First of all, I have the Alesis DM10 Studio Mesh Kit with the Alesis DM10 drum module. First, I updated the firmware as instructed. Follow the open / close calibrations. Alesis recommends you have a 3/4" gap between the top and bottom hat. So slightly close your Hi-Hat to that opening, and select the open hi-hat setting in the calibration mode. Push down firmly to close your hi-hat when setting the closed setting. Now the hi-hat is working great with real feel. Now to set up with my Addictive Drums Software. This is where I had issues. After trying to go into the Map Key Manager in AD2 and manually setting up the hi-hat using the hi-hat learn function, only the last triggered sound (example: Closed Tip hi-hat) would play no matter what position the hi-hat was in. I couldn't find any threads on the internet to resolve the issue. So after trial and error and no luck finding help, I thought I'm going to try and reset my E-Drum setting. AD2 has several E-Drum settings to work with today's most common E-Drum sets. I changed my setting to default, and then I changed it back to Alesis DM10 E-Drum Kit. This restored the default settings for my kit. To my surprise, it automatically calibrated my Alesis Pro X Hi-Hat for me. Works like a charm now. If you try to calibrate it, it loses all the default settings and your back to only one sound. So, DO NOT USE THE HI HAT LEARN FUNCTION in AD2 if you are using the Alesis Pro X Hi-Hat. Now that is calibrated and working correctly, I love it. It triggers perfectly for me, and has a very realistic feel and sound. Just be patient and follow your calibration instructions and remember that you must update your firmware before you can calibrate the hi-hat.

Loud for an electronic kit

I have an electronic kit to make it easier to mix my sound live and in to minimize stage volume in smaller venues. These hi hats are very loud (acoustically) when played and I had to return them due to the sound bleeding back through my vocal mic. Sweetwater was good to work with for the return.

Not What Was Expected

Like most people... I got these because I wanted the ability to more accurately control my hi-hats. I've used several different electronic hi-hat controllers and have been pretty impressed at the accuracy. These however are not a good example of a good set of e-hats. Let's be fair though... the other hats that I've used are far more expensive than these. So it stands to reason that these wouldn't be as nice. My suggestion is to either figure out a way to get another brand to work with your Alesis DM kit or stick with the stock hats. They just work better than these. Plus you're not into it for hats and an additional stand (~$200+).
