I have problems with MIDI triggering using electronic drums that i do not quite understand it probably have todo with VSTI's and their programming rather then MIDI issues. But i've been trying to trigger SOUNDFONT VSTI's, sampler VSTI's and drum VSTI's using my electronic drums. And it is only a few that actually response to the midi triggering, i know that my drums send on MIDI channel 10. But i have not restricted the hosts to any midichannel so i guess they listen to all?
I have a hard time to wrap what is going on, can it be they are programmed to need a longer timeperiod then a drumstroke, but then they would not trigger using a sequenser either?
What could it be, i have an old roland soundcanvas SC-7 it trigger without problem, some freeware drum VSTI like MT power drum do trigger, but most VSTI do not seem to notice the strokes. But my soundcard built in CREATIVE soundfont player have no problem what so ever to be triggered by the DD400 drumset but i tried half a dousin of soundfont VSTI's all trigger keyboard but none from the electronic drums and i am sure there are samples on the notes that the pads trigger.
