This is great. This is something I want to try. I'm an old fart, 70, just getting into electronic drums. Have played acoustic all my life. I have a Yamaha DTX500 module, MIDI out only, and have tried to hook it up to a Yamaha PSR-295 keyboard that has a USB midi in/out. So I have hooked up a USB MIDI Host to add MIDI in and out jacks. So far I can't make them talk to each other. Can you point me to some information that will help. ThanksI connected my e.drum-kit to a couple of synths and was pleased with the results. Is anyone else doing this? If not, then I really recommend you try, it's a lot of fun. Here's what it can sound like;
John, thanks. I'll try again and reply.Two main possibilities come to mind. The drum module will be sending out midi on a specific channel ( my alesis nitro is channel 10 ). Find out your module's channel and then go to functions in your keyboard and set what is probably called " remote channel" to that number.
The other possible problem is that drum modules messages are too short to trigger most sounds. You have to either find sounds that have a natural longer release/decay time ( like pads, strings etc), or in functions increase the release/decay of the sound you want to use.
Other than that, the only thing i can think of is that it could be to do with your usb midi host. Does it have some option switches on it?
I hope this helps, let me know how you get on
