New user trying to use a TD-3 kit to trigger drum sounds in Cubase 10.5 so I can record with the kit using sounds in Groove Agent.
TD-3 MIDI OUT to UR-22C MIDI IN, then USB to Windows 10 PC.
The first try i got keyboard sounds when i hit the drumpads through the PC monitors, then a minute later the Steinberg ASIO driver “was removed”…
The second try I can see a little green VU on the lower right corner bouncing when I hit the drumpad, but no sounds. It appears the DAW is getting the signal, but none of the VU meters on the strip or in Groove Agent I pull up show signal. (Yes, the little yellow speaker was on)
At no time have I heard sounds from the headphones of the UR-22, even switching back and forth from PC audio out or UR-22 audio out on the computer.
From what I’ve read so far it appears:
- I can record through the audio port on the UR-22 instead and not use MIDI. (I’d get Roland sounds this way).
- I can record MIDI info, edit it, and send it back to the TD-3 for Roland sounds (Not what I’m looking for).
I’d like to use the e-drums to trigger Groove Agent sounds in real time in Cubase. This method is more appealing than banging on a MiniLab to play drums. I sort of think there might be latency issues, but I could monitor myself through the headphone jack on the UR-22 to avoid this (i think).
I’ve spent the best part of the day reading and experimenting to no avail. I understand this is likely just a routing problem a noob isn’t aware of. Steep learning curve for me, but being stuck at home in a pandemic is a golden opportunity to finally learn how to use this gear and get some of the songs dancing around in my head recorded.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Feel free to DM. Cheers.
