asked Jun 7, 2017 in Studio One 3 by tristandoddridge (150 points)
I recently set up my electronic drum kit with impact in studio one 3. Everything is working except the high hats. The high hat is always closed whether I am pushing on the high hat pedal or not. The high hat pedal still makes the closing high hat sound though, but it does not control if it is open or closed. I tried switching the high hat to be open, but then it is always open even when I'm pushing on the high hat pedal. Not sure what I should do or if there is a solution. How to fix? thanks.

Here is a link to the PreSonus forum where someone has set this up successfully.

The answer is to set the e drums up as an instrument as well as a keyboard and then set up the instrument  with a "Receive from" as well as a "send to."  Adding the "Receive From" allows the MIDI data to be recorded provided that you have an automation lane set up as a "foot controller."
