drum trigger

alright so heres the deal, i use 1 bass drum and a dble pedal, i just bought a bass drum trigger and a module...when i play a medium tempo consistent dble bass beat, i get these weird little triplet sounds like in double hitting one of my beats, anyone know where that comes from? is it my style or play? should i use 2 bass drums which i have?

you need to play with the settings in the mod.
what mod did you get? and what trigger are you using?

i used Ddrum triggers and a Alesis D5 mod for years. its a fine compromise between the gain, noise, decay and a few other settings i cant think of right now.
essentially, you need to teach the mod exactly what each bass hit feels like. a few cheats would be loosening off the bass head JUST ALITTLE to stop any extended reverberation of the head.
but its defenetly all in the settings.

Yeah, you definitely gotta tweak with the settings a bit. It's not uncommon to have this problem. Using 2 bass drums will obviously be a better choice in this matter, but a double pedal can work.
