  • Triggering TD-50 module from Roland SPD-30 Octapad

    Hello,
    I just purchased a Roland TD-50 Trigger module, and would like to trigger it via MIDI using my Roland SPD-30 Octapad. I attached MIDI cable from SPD-30 MIDI out to TD-50 MIDI in, and have been tinkering with the MIDI settings on both devices all evening, without success. Does anyone here have any experience with this?

    MIDI NOTEs, have to match between two devices.

      You should set the MIDI Channel to 11
      Configure the MIDI Notes on the SPD to trigger Percussion Notes on the TD-50

        There is no percussion set on the TD50. You can only trigger the main drum sounds on the MIDI ch10. Just check the note numbers on the td50 sounds you want to use and adjust the spd to those values.
