Customer Question
When I connect my...

When I connect my FD-8 HH controller to my SPD-20 (with pad input 4 switch set to "HH Control", I get NO sound at all...I did notice that when I connect it, the readout on the SPD-20 says "FD-7"...

Technician's Assistant: When did this audio problem start with your instrument?

I haven't used either instrument for months, but need to trigger some sounds for an upcoming event...everything has been in storage at my home.

Technician's Assistant: Is the audio working with headphones or external speakers?

Yes. Any other external pads, as well as the 8 pads on the SPD-20 are working...the only one not working is external input #4.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

No, just trying to figure out why the FD-8 is not working with the SPD-20.
