DTX HYBRID: USING ALTERNATE GROUPS

In a previous issue I discussed triggering loops using HOLD mode so that you can start/stop a loop voice with each alternating strike of a single pad.  But what if you want to use a different pad with a different loop voice to stop the first one?  The answer is to take the pad out of hold mode and assign each loop voice to the same ALTERNATE GROUP. 

When two or more voices are assigned to the same alternate group - only the most recently played voice will sound, and the earlier voice will be silenced.  This not only works with loop voices, any voice can be assigned to work this way.  As a matter of fact, any kit that features open and closed hi-hat voices uses the alternate group function.  It is perfectly acceptable to setup dedicated “kill-switch” pads that feature non-looping voices to stop currently sounding loop voices in the same alternate group.
