How can I assign midi controller to a Drumrack pad?

Post by aniajudie » Sat Feb 05, 2011 4:57 pm

I just got a mdid controller and want to trigger drumpads from the Drumrack. I looked everywhere I could for triggering the pad when in midi map mode, but nothing turned blue. Any tips?
Thanks:)

Because they're not MIDI mappable... They just respond to MIDI notes. Set your controller and controller's channel to be the input of the track your Drum Rack is on and find out which notes your controller is sending and match 'em up with the Drum Rack pads. I have to be this general and vague because I don't know which controller you're using.

Eh? Why?

Surely that's much better than having to manually MIDI map all of your controls to the pads... Imagine if you had to do that with keyboards! Map each key to the key on the keyboard!

Which controller are you using?

If it sucks, it means your not understanding it right. They map automatically to certain keys. You can change the note that they respond to in the in/out section.
