With midi learn you can connect 2 e drum sets

I used 2 ddrum ddti modules, a midi merger connected to my alesis iodock 2. It functions very well. Low latency, fairly easy to program midi with midi learn. However there seems to be an issue with entering manual midi notes. This app is a couple octaves off for some reason. Could be something on my end... I also haven't successfully added high hat pedals but I think I need to do something with my modules. Not sure about sample import yet hopefully it's something this app provides but the pre loaded samples aren't half bad.

This is an early rating and will edit when I get everything working properly. Pretty happy so far. Pretty sweet rocking 2 different kick drums, 3 different snares, 5 toms, 2 high hat pedals (eventually) and 4 cymbals!

Good sounds but problematic Midi

I want to use this and want to like it, but using it with midi is a problem. Drums skip out and don’t play polyphonically via midi, meaning that simultaneous midi messages don’t make it through to Drum XD and it will drop sounds (is bass + tom on Cubasis 3 will only play tom)

Brilliant! Great Update!

If you play them or if you sequence them, this is what your iPad has been missing. You will not regret the purchase of this app in the slightest.

Capture a live performance to your favorite MIDI sequencer, clean up any mistakes, and play it back to Drums XD, then out to your favorite "DAW" via Audiobus or AudioCopy.

It is a VERY impressive drum app. The factory sounds are great. The dynamic response is superior. The GUI is stunning.
