Accessing Different Drum Sounds

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am using a Yamaha DTX kit to record MIDI drums in Cakewalk. I get the MIDI recorded in and have a coupled audio track that is producing the drum sounds. My only question is, does Cakewalk have alternate drum sound presets available, or is it just the single kit of sounds? Changing the drum map on the MIDI track amongst the 100+ Alesis/Roland/Yamaha/etc presets doesn't change the produced sound at all.

Is this possible or would more kits need to be downloaded externally?

Thanks in advance.

Drum maps have no sounds associated with them. They are primarily for transposing MIDI note data and providing labels for the drum grid pane.

Hardware synths and software plug-ins are responsible for generating sound based on MIDI data.

For drums. Cakewalk includes Studio Instruments Drum Kit and TTS-1.

There are quite a few free and commercial third-party drum plug-ins.

Here is a thread about free plug-ins that includes some dedicated drum plug-ins.
