If you wanted a pulse length of 40ms, you'd want a decimal value of 79 for pl, and a value of 0 for ph. In hex, the values ph pl would be: 00 4FSo, your pulse length in ms = 0.5 * ((128 * 0) + 79 + 1) = 40Each increment of ph is worth 64 ms, and each increment of pl is worth 0.5 ms. For a 40ms pulse: since 40 is less than 64, ph is zero, and only pl is needed to get to 40. Or another way to put it: the pulse length is a 14-bit value, with 7 bits each in ph and pl.
A1 = PHA2 = PL
=(((A1*128)+B1+ 1)* 0.5)
You'll need somewhere between 7.5 and 12 VDC to power the MSA. This can be from a battery (like a 9V battery), or from a DC power supply, such as a wall wart.Connect the negative (-) terminal of the battery or supply to "POWER IN" "G" on the MSA. Connect the positive terminal to "POWER IN" "+" on the MSA.
The MSA-P A/B terminals have no polarity--so you'd have no problem grounding either side.

Dear EA,Here is what became of my RockBand DrumKit. You will notice the control module missing. I have decided to use it for hooking my MIDI Kit to the game. I was tired of waiting on your RMA Service. The kick pedal and mounts are good and included. Do what you wish.Jason

Should I ship them back the peices with a note saying not to worry about it?I have the blue board, rev3. So it might be a regional thing.Anyways, I'm at a stand still until I get the MSA-P now. So this project is on hold until around Monday. Oh, and I have no clue on the software/computer method. Sorry.Ok, I repacked the box, and wrote a letter to EA that is taped to the drums missing the control module.http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b9/zolon/IMG_2125.jpgI took pictures of that also.
