  • How do MIDI songs sound?

    Hey folks,
    I've heard that you can play midi songs that you've downloaded off the internet on your td-6/8/10, even if it's got a full band with guitars...
    Well, you know how these MIDI songs sound terrible on a computer??? How do they sound through the module? Any better? Any worse? Good enough to play along to?
    Thanks!

    They sound as good as your module is. I don't now about the TD-6, but my TD-10 is just a drummodule with hardly any other instrument on board. I think that the best way to do it (if it is a midi standard midifile), is to connect your module to a synth and re-route midichannel 10 to your module. That way you will have your drum part via the TD-6 and the rest of the instrument via your Synth.

      Thanks.
      I am trying to avoid the use of any other piece of equipment other than the computer and the module though.
      I guess I can anticipate slightly bettter sound than on the computer, but maybe less instruments supported?

        I'm not sure I understand your last sentence (sorry I'm Dutch), but if you have a soundcard in your computer with a good midichip onboard, you don't need an external module or synthesizer.
        If you want to use your TD-xx module for drum sound, it is also possible. Reroute midichannel 10 to the mpu-interface from your soundcard and it will play the drum part over the TD-xx instead of your soundcard. All the other instruments will play on your computer

        I hope this helps,

        Groeten, Peter
