Changing the drum sounds using SI-Drum Kit

Recommended Posts

I'm recording using the SI Drum Kit that comes with SW, and a Roalnd TD-1 virtual kit as the controller. Everything's working fine, but I can't figure out how to map different drum sounds to the various TD-1 controllers.

For example, when I hit the "snare," I have some songs where I want that to be a side stick instead of a full-on snare sound. Can anyone tell me how I configure that?

Thanks!

The notes supported by SI Drum Kit are documented in its help.

To open SI Drum Kit help, open the plug-in UI, click in the UI and hit the F1 key.

The note map is in the "Using the Drum Pads" section.

To play a side stick requires MIDI note 37 so, either

  • the controller must send note 37 or
  • some note sent by the controller must be transposed to note 37 or
  • the notes must be entered some other way such as
    • directly keying in the notes or
    • dragging some existing notes to the appropriate value.

 

Often drum controllers may re-assign the notes triggered by the kit.

 

Cakewalk has two methods of mapping incoming notes to different values

@scook, thanks! I was able to play around enough with the information you pointed me to get it to work. To be honest, I still don't quite understand the configurations, but I'm now able to play and record a side stick on the snare, so I got what I needed.

Thanks again, appreciate the help (knowing that F1 would get me to the SI-Drums Help documentation was the main thing. :)).
