Ever since I lost my rehearsal room I've been using MIDI to control my Drum VI (Audio Assault Westwood). I don't have an actual keyboard, so I downloaded vmpk, to turn my computer keypad into controller.
I've been trying to figure out how to map a specific sample to two separate keys. It makes rolls sound more realistic vs the choppy sound a one finger chickenpecking a single key.
Unfortunately, I've run into problems on both sides of the situation. Vmpk doesn't allow you to map two keys, let's say, to the floor tom. And on the other end, the Westwood drum VI doesn't let you assign a sample to one of the unused MIDI notes.
Can anyone think of a work around for this? I'm aware that some of the more popular, and expensive, Drum VI's allow you to customize which MIDI notes trigger which samples.. I just don't have the hundreds of dollars to drop.
