Hi I have a roland drum kit, I think it is a HD-1, I see at the bottom of groove agent there is a menu to set up for Yamaha kits which I understand, but I would like to be able to use my kit. I have seen on other drum programs the ability to do this.
I’m asking the same question for the Alesis drum kits.
Same question… I have Alesis Crimson II and really struggling with getting the hi-hat to work and especially using the foot pedal.
I’m trying to get this to work with the acoustic agent and read the manual.
Just about to give up and get EZDrummer2 which I just downloaded the demo and works perfectly…
I wish I could avoid spending extra $150… but I can;t see a way to make GA5 to work…
Here’s the explanation from the online manual. Basically, map all the individual pads using Edit/Learn Trigger Note (MIDI learn), then save it using the small save icon to the right of the Use Hardware Controller Mapping icon.
Using an Alternative MIDI Trigger Note Mapping
If you use an external hardware drum controller that sends specific MIDI notes for specific instruments, you can specify an alternative MIDI trigger note mapping.
Activate Use Hardware Controller Mapping in the lower right corner of the instrument pad section.
Now you can load, save, and delete different trigger note configurations.
Specify a new trigger note for the pad.
Right-click a pad, select Edit/Learn Trigger Note and specify the new trigger note by entering it into the value field or by playing the corresponding note on your hardware controller.
Right-click a pad, select Trigger Notes > Assign Trigger Note and select the note from the submenus.
Groove Agent jumps to the next pad.
Assign a MIDI note to all the pads that you want to use and press Enter to stop assigning MIDI notes.
Assigned trigger notes are shown on the Trigger Notes submenu of the context menu.
