Question about Yamaha Dtxpress Iv Special Electronic Drum Set
I have an electronic drum kit that I want to use to record with. This particular kit has usb out. I plug the kit, via usb, it into the comp and it recognizes the kit as a usb MIDI device. This is also listed as a usb MIDI device Home Studio. I open a new blank project. I import a wav file using File>Import>Audio (to record the drum track for). I then add a MIDI track. Under "Options...MIDI Devices" I select the kit as a MIDI input device. In the MIDI track, for the input, I select "usb MIDI device", and output to my built in sound card.
I have tow problems:
1. When I hit the pads on the kit I hear some of the pads, but the voices are all messed up.
2. The lag time is so long that even if the voices were right I couldn't record anything anyway.
What can I do to fix this mess?
Sounds to me like you have the midi tracks outputting to the microsoft midi mapper or wavetable synth, which is built into the sound chip in your pc, and that this is conflicting with the mobilepre sound card - midi is just data, no audio, needs to drive some kind of synth. what you want to do is disable your internal sound card thru device manager, then just use the m-audio mobile pre as the input/output sound card in ASIO mode - you'll need to monitor via the headphone jack on the mobile pre or plug speakers into the line outs on the interface.
Then do tutorial 8 (in help files) on using soft synths - INSERT>SOFTSYNTHs creates a midi track and an audio track in a track folder.
