I've owned a TD-25KV for about a few weeks now and it's working great. I want to start experimenting with Addictive Drums 2, Steven Slate Drums 4, and the like so I can get better sounds.
To get that set up, I'd obviously have to connect the TD-25 to my computer, but my question is what is the best way to do that? What method will result in the least latency and the best performance?
1.) Connect via MIDI cable from the TD-25 midi-out to an audio interface midi-in (such as the Steinberg UR22-mkii), which is then connected to the laptop.. or
2.) Connect via USB cable from the TD-25 usb-out then straight to the laptop.. or
3.) Connect via a MIDI-to-USB cable (such as the M-Audio Uno) from the TD-25's midi-out then into the laptop's usb port..
Are they all more or less going to achieve the same result? Is one better than the other? I know a lot of variables may come into play, but I would like to get some general advice if possible.
If it helps, my laptop is a Dell with an i5 processor, 8GB of ram, and OS is Windows 10. I plan on using Sonar Artist / Professional for recordings, since I'm already familiar with previous versions.
