    Yep!
    Make sure, that's a stereo-plug (...or 'T-R-S') on each end!

    Awesome. Thanks Pervecal. Do you know offhand what type of cable that would require?

    Yes, headphones out, or just a MP3 player, CD, etc... Run a cable between that and Mix in on your td6 and you can practice with the td6 sounds along your song

    Ok, thanks fellas. Just to be clear, I'm not interested in recording anything, would just like to play along to MP3 tracks to practice. I realize now that the MIDI isn't really designed to do this easily. So would the best solution be to run a chord from the computers MIC out to the Roland's MIX In as the first poster suggested? Does anyone else do it this way?

    MIDI is not for sending sounds to your computer, but data, which your computer will use to convert into music using a VST sound library. So you need a VST sound library, and a host for your music. Mac or PC have different hosts, Read the VST primer in this forum to learn more about this. If you want to use the sounds of the TD-6 when playing, you will need a TRS cable and a way to input that into your computer. A line in , or a dedicated audio interface, then a simple program to listen and record on your computer, like Audacity. So, depending on your needs, different approaches are available

    iTunes only plays audio not MIDI. Only the newer models have USB Audio/Midi so what you need is a cable to go from your computer's headphone output to the mix-in on the TD6. then you can here the iTunes audio through your module.

    Brand new to Vdrums- Could use some help

    Hey Guys,

    Brand new to Vdrums. Bought an older TD6v with the hope of being able to practice with headphones (first time dad). I'd like to be able to play along to songs through iTunes using a USB to MIDI cable. I've read some things about needing an interface? All I know is that simply plugging in the USB to MIDI isn't working.

    Is it even possible to play to songs through itunes with the 6v. I know it's a pretty old unit. Can anyone out there give me a hand? Thanks!-Ryan
Working...
