Just wanted to report …SUCCESS!
so far so good! i plugged the USB cable from the module to the Imac, loaded the roland driver from the roland site
added a midi track in cubase with “all midi inputs” and Superior Drummer in the output
hit the monitor button and record, RAN BACK to the kit and smacked some drums! i could see the drums in SD being hit in the distance. RAN BACK and stopped the recording and there were DOTS IN THE LANE!
played back and SD played the MIDI notes!
i was blown away
now i have no idea how the kit and SD sync’d up? i didnt set anything at all?
some things i want to look at now are, its very hard for me to stretch headphones back to the kit, with latency set as low as i can get it, does anyone just play out loud over speakers? i figure since this is drums and direct i dont need it to be quiet and that would be much easier than trying to get headphones back to the kit
i am going to setup and use the IPAD app so i can sit at the kit and control cubase
i need to learn the whole quantize thing next.
now i will try and combine some great grooves from SD that are way better than what i can play and then in the sections where i need to add something i need a count in? possibly do that loop recording? not sure if i should set it to add to the track as i build it or just overwrite it each time? i figure since its a kit i should overwrite since i am not trying to build it drum by drum
once good at this then head to the multi track out thing.
but man, it worked! thanks all!
