  • Playback problems Superior Drummer and Roland TD-20

    Hello all,

    First, I'm sure this problem has come up before, but I haven't been able to find a solution here or on other forums. Probably because I'm new to all this MIDI stuff and that I don't know where to look for because I lack the proper jargon.

    However, my problem is as follows: SD does not play all the notes I play on my drum kit. For example, if I play straight 16th double bass, every now and then it will not play a single 16th bassdrum note. While this makes for interesting rythms, It's not wat I want of course. It's not that it's delayed or anything; it just does not play, no matter whether I play at 100 BPM or 180 BPM.

    SD and Toontrack are fully updated. I play a Roland TD-20, MIDI connection via USB. My MacBook Pro is Mid 2010, 2,66Ghz, 4GB RAM.

    Thanks for all the help!

    4G of ram is pretty small these days. More memory means faster everything.

    I would up the memory to at least 8 G.

    Other problems could come from retrig settings ( or whatever they are called on the td30), crosstalk, bad MIDI to USB cable, etc...

      Open up a midi editor and see if the note actually reached the PC. You need to know this before looking at SD2. What DAW/Sequencer are you using?
      Roland TD30 module on TD20 kit SD3 with various kits. Pearl Masters Kit, Yamaha 9000RC original natural wood finish. Cymbals from Zildgian Pasite and Sabian. Loads of percussion bits. Cubase and Wavelab always current versions.
