Akai MPX8 pad player controlling Deluge drum kit: why is there a delay; why is it louder?
I connected my Akai MPX8 to the Midi In of my Deluge and experimented with 'learning' drum samples (just using the preset Kit 0).
When I hit one of the pads on the Akai, there was a 1 second delay before the sample is heard (issue #1).
This issue seemed to persist, then I took a 20-min break and when I came back, there was no delay.
HOWEVER, I 'learned' more samples from the kit with the Akai, and found another issue: hi hats can't apparently be triggered as close together as I'd like. I can play them close together on the Deluge, but not on the Akai (issue #2).
Finally, the volume of samples triggered on the Akai is much louder vs those played on the Deluge. Can I turn it (the input level or sensitivity) down somehow? (issue #3)
Thanks in advance for help!
