After you have setup the VH-14D on the hihat stand and connected the cables, it's important to calibrate it within the TD-50/TD-50X. Doing so optimizes the Hihat open/close ("Offset") range. Here's how:
- Turn on the TD-50X.
- Loosen the clutch on the VH-14D and let the top pad drop down and rest on the bottom pad (foot off the HH pedal).
- Press and hold the [KIT] button, and then press the [TRIGGER] button
- "Now Processing" appears in the display.
"Complete" appears momentarily in the display and the main Kit menu returns when the calibration procedure is finished. You can then raise the top pad and tighten the VH-14D's clutch.
