Hello, Zaphi

Thanks for posting!

These do not sound like problems, you just need to get more familiar with the Strike Multipad. 

I would recommend checking out our tutorial series for most of your questions:


Here are a few things to note:

1. You can change the output of the Metronome to Headphones, Main, and Aux ports.
2. G3 or G#3 may not mean thats the note it's playing, its the MIDI CC note that is assigned to the pad for when you are sending MIDI to a DAW.
3. You cannot delete preset kits, You have over 7,000 sounds built into the Strike Multipad.
4. Kits will load if the scrolling knob stops. 
5. There are not factory sounds to download. It's all built-in. 

The rest of your questions are just how the Strike Multipad functions or can be answered on the training videos.

Enjoy your new SMP!

Thanks for the answer but....

1. OK that's fine, but i can't change the volume

2. What the hell can i do with 2 similar sounds, they send differnt midi notes? My problem is....there is no sound that plays the note G3. Without G3 i cant make a Kid in a Scale like G Major.

3. OK.. .-(

4. Thats the Problem. I have no chance to look at the list, becouse i have to wait for load the kid. And thats a long time

An then the Hihat Problem. You recomand a Hihat-Pedal (Real-Pedal), but i can't buy it somwhere in Germany.

Thats not what i want. I think i will give back tha pad, and buy a Roland or a Nord. They have not so much features, but they works.

Hello, Zaphi

Can you explain more what you are trying to achieve? If you are just trying to pitch a sample to a specific key, you can do this in the Mix settings under Sound > Edit. I can definitely submit your feedback regarding the scrolling feature :) However, that is how the Strike Multipad works. 

I was able to find this dealer in Germany. We have dealers all over Europe.



You can find a list of them at:


This is not the only pedal that can work with the HH input, you can use any non-latching momentary pedal :) 

Hope this helps!
