Mapping an electronic drum kit

Post by danny klim » Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:08 pm

Hi, I'm trying to map my DM6 drum kit and having issues. Could you please help?

I plugged in my Alesis DM6 kit and loaded a drum kit in ableton, but a few of the pads didn’t map anything at all and several of the pads were incorrectly mapped (i.e. crash is triggered by the kick drums).

What is the best/easiest way to map a electronic drum kit in ableton?

Is there any way to auto-map it correctly? Of, if not, how can i manually map it?



Also, is there any way to change the volume and the sound of one particular drum sound? Some of the sounds are too loud and some are too quiet… and i also would like to be able to customize the sounds of each kit.


Thanks, Dan
