  • Configuration guide??

    Hi everybody, I'm new to drum and I just bought a new Roland TD3 drum kit. I'm practicing songs and I'm using Guitar Pro to read my tabs. However there are a lot of notes that I'm not sure how to configure. For example, if I watch the percussion window, all notes are there and I would like to know if there is a place where I can find which setup on my drum fits which note in the software (for example "35 - Acoustic bass drum" vs "36 - Bass drum 1"). I would like to have a guide that would say for example "Acoustic bass drum" is K01 and "Bass Drum 1" is K02.

    This is probably a stupid question, but since I'm new to drum, I would need a little bit of help. I mostly have problem to configure "Low floor tom" and "high floor tom" and stuff like that.

    Any suggestion where I could get such a guide??

    The problem is that Guitar Pro is going to use the GM (General MIDI) drum map, which is listed below. Obviously, the TD-3 doesn't have all of these. I tried to make all the TD3 equivelents for you.

    36 Bass Drum 1 (TD3 Kick)
