    HI There, i have two questions, the first one is: Im using a Yamaha
    Dtxplorer kit and have mapped it to maschine inside lofic. Can i somehow
    record in to maschine directly with my Yamaha? Question 2: I also mapped i
    to ultrabeat and when i play on the pads really fast, the notes just cuts
    out, like when i do a snare roll? the velocity is also pretty much the same
    no matter how hard i hat on the pads? please?!

    Really? I plug midi out to midi in, whew, thank god for this video. I’ve
    spent the last two years trying to figure out where the midi cable went.
    Great tutorial, packed full of information. Hey can you do a video that
    shows plugging in the midi cable and another video that shows how to plug
    in the drum kit to the wall for power? Please, please.

    This is shocking maybe if you weren’t so fucking baked you could upload
    something substantial

    Hi, thanks for your question. It could be the MIDI data didn’t align with
    the correct key zones on the piano roll. Try moving the MIDI data to see if
    it falls into place with what your supposed to be hearing.

    yo i did this, using roland TDXV2 or something and M audio firewire 410.
    using midi from kit to M audio, then firewire into my comp to record midi.
    but some of the drum sounds are off, i.e. the open hi hat sounds like a
    closed one and the closed one and the hi hat pedal make no sound, although
    they do come thru as midi data. how do you map them to certain sounds in
    the drum kit track? or do i just need to drag the midi data to the correct
    sounding thing on the piano roll?

  9. Utubermb1 says:

    @hsneedude did you ever figure out how to re map your snare and kick drum?

    i have a electric drum kit it has a midi out and a left and right output
    would i be able to record my electric drum kit into my computer using the m
    audio interface or what would you suggest for recording guitar and drums in
    to a computer and being able to mix them ? i also have a boss me 70 pedal
    would i be able to use the effects of there then run into the m audio
    interface ? please respond thanks

    Hi, I’m connecting my Yamaha DTXplorer to MacBook Pro via MIDI cable,
    everything works except the kick and the snare, they give no sound at all..
    Please help! Appreciated!

    Hey, I have a question. I am a complete noob at recording music. I have the
    DTXPRESS 4 Yamaha electric drum set, and I want to record an audio file to
    have on my computer. I know you made a tutorial for this, but I was
    wondering if you could maybe give a quick step-by-step? I’m very new to
    this! Thank you very much, Ryo

    Call that a tutorial??? that was awful…

  15. WinkSound says:

    @Prasetyaification. To answer your question, there are two different ways
    that you can record out of the yamaha dtxpress. You can record the drums as
    audio, by connecting the L/R outputs on the back of your electric drum
    module to inputs on your interface (using 1/4 inch cables). You can also
    record your drums as MIDI as well (if your interface has a MIDI input), by
    connecting the MIDI output on the back of your drum module to the MIDI
    input on your interface…

  16. WinkSound says:

    On a side note, if you would prefer to record your drums as MIDI, but the
    interface you are using doesn’t have a MIDI input, many companies such as
    M-Audio have made cable adapters that allow you to connect your MIDI output
    to a USB slot on your computer. Check out the M-Audio Uno, as Dabog083
    mentioned if this is the situation that you’re in. Chris.

  17. Prasetyaification says:

    I’m still recording my drum sound from the speakers, so the drums do not
    sound good. you can see my videos on my channel. whether the left and right
    outputs of the modules that are on the yamaha connect to the computer? or
    maybe you could make a video on youtube about how to record a yamaha
    dtxpress with the computer? (Show cables that connect the module to a
    computer) thanks

  18. David Dockery says:

    @WiNKsound OK thanks!

  19. WinkSound says:

    Hi @Dabog083 Yes. That means that your electric kit only sends MIDI
    information, as opposed to being able to receive MIDI info as well. Install
    the M-Audio drivers and connect from the MIDI out on your electric drum kit
    to the USB port of your computer. Haven’t personally used this interface so
    check the manual in case it needs any special setup and you should be good
    to go. Mateo

  20. David Dockery says:

    my electric kit only has one MIDI out port, could I still use the M-Audio
    Uno adapter to record with it? if so, how? thanks!

  21. WinkSound says:

    @jjpp1093 Thanks for the great question. This is totally possible, M-Audio
    actually makes a product (M-Audio Uno-MIDI Adapter) which allows you to do
    exactly what you’re hoping to get accomplished, I’ll send you a link to the
    device in your profile. When using this device, or any other device like
    this one you will then be able to use your drum tracks the same way as you
    would with any other midi track. Cheers. Chris.
