Monitoring in Ableton and midi in

Post by monks » Mon Dec 23, 2013 10:59 pm

Hi I'm triggering drum racks in 9.1 using an electronic drum kit. I noticed that I can only monitor sounds coming in when the track record is activated. Do I have to have record activated to monitor sounds?

Also, when I connected the drum kit midi out to the soundcard midi in, I wasn't able to trigger any of the drum rack, but as soon as I hooked up the usb (drums to soundcard), it was triggering. Does anybody know if it's possible to do this without using the usb?

Fixed it. I have to set the monitor to "In". that enables monitoring without record activation. To enable midi triggering without usb I routed input to the soundcard rather than the electronic drumkit.
