Since the DCAY time threshold is adjusted too low, the DCAY level curves off too soon allowing a second point, during the signal’s decay, to exceed the threshold. Having two stereo output pairs allows for several options. Make sure the cursor is under the Controllers status.

However, it will not trigger any sounds or MIDI note messages. There are Program Change command numbers. The top line of the second page shows the channel status. Group Determines how a drum sound or group of drum sounds will respond to successive series of triggers.
