Star SD1000 update firmware 2.0
Posted by: Hellfire - 09-23-2022, 10:40 PM - Forum: Simmons Equipment - No Replies

Attached to this post is the firmware update files (must unzip) for the SD1000 module. The first file contains the actual update files. The second file is the PDF instructions on how to go about updating the SD1000 module. [You must be logged in to download the files.]

It was released back in 2014, but has since been removed from the official Simmons website. I saved these file back then because I had a SD1000 module that I needed to update.

This update makes the SD1000 module compatible with the somewhat newer SD1500 electronic drum kit. It is still compatible with the older SD1000 kit, but it does add a few new sounds and a few more parameters to the configuration. Basically it adds configurations for 3 three zone trigger pads (snare, ride, & tom #4).

These files are only good for the SD1000 module. Use these files at your own risk. I (or SDdrummer) is not responsible for any damage done to your module while using (or trying to use) these files. You assume all risk.
(sorry I have to state this, but not everyone follows the directions and it can brick your module if not done correctly)

  The 'key' to verify your Simmons Firmware version!
Posted by: Lefty38-55 - 01-24-2022, 11:30 AM - Forum: Simmons Equipment - Replies (2)

I used this to verify the Firmware version on my SD1200 and it may work on other Simmons modules.

Hold the ‘+’ and ‘Play/Stop’ buttons together, then power up to get into the test mode. 

The Firmware will be displayed on the left, see mine is version ‘20200914’, which is the latest for the -1200 series as of today, 24Jan2022.

Shut off to exit the Test mode.

(Note, the word 'FUN' = Function)

  Seeing 8 or 9 triggers for the Hi-Hat
Posted by: Lefty38-55 - 01-14-2022, 12:09 PM - Forum: Simmons Equipment - No Replies

An experienced 'eDrummer' I am not, so some of the techno stuff eluds me. We know that at its basic, the hi-hat has 2 zones and can be open, half open, closed and then can be operated with the pedal to close (chik) or slam (splash), for lack of better words. But I'm finding about 9 different trigger names and 7 sounds (CLBow & HOEdge duplicated) flashing across the screen as one plays the H-H in Utility mode.

These are all the triggers I’ve seen flash across the screen when hitting the Hi-Hat. All these sounds were from a factory kit using the ‘14”Z’ hi-hat.
Closed - 14”Z CLBow (this may be ‘HH Closed’, as is same as below)
HH Closed - 14”Z CLBow
HH R Closed - 14”Z CLEdge (guessing the ‘R’ means rim, for edge)
HH Open - 14”Z OpBow
HH R Open - 14”Z OpEdge (guessing the ‘R’ means rim, for edge)
HH Half Open - 14”Z HOEdge
HH R Half Open - 14”Z HOEdge (looks like it duplicates HH Half Open)
HHC Pedal - 14”Z Foot
HHC Splash - 14”Z Splash

So to follow-up … if the H-H is just truly a 2-zone devices, how are they also getting closed, half open & open sounds? 

Unless the cymbal trigger does Bow & Edge and then the pedal state adds the variety for Closed, Half Open, Open, Foot (chik) & Slam (splash) sounds? 

Does that make sense????

  Adjust FILTERS on SD1200/1250 for improved sounds
Posted by: Lefty38-55 - 01-03-2022, 09:50 AM - Forum: Simmons Equipment - No Replies

FYI, a few friends and I that have these kits are finding that too many on the stock sounds are somewhat 'flat', even with the reverb set to Stage 2. To adjust the Filters, either the Filter or Envelope (shape) settings, press the Function button below Filter/Env in the display.

We are finding that maxing out the cutoff and resonance greatly improves the depth and sustain, especially on the cymbals and snare. We do not use it on toms.
