Hey, total noob here, well at least as far as electronic recording. I just purchased Logic Pro Studio with Apogee Duet for I/O. I was planning on using my Alesis SR-16 drum machine through one of Apogee's 1/4" inputs but it does not work. I've tried all the various jacks and all I am getting is some faint distorted audio. So for now I can either mic the Alesis drum machine and input the mic signal through the XLR; or use Logic Pro's built in drum machine. The problem with the latter is I already have a lot of beats programmed on the Alesis. But I am also not too excited about degrading an electronic signal to analog, then mic'ing it back in. So I guess what I am asking is does anyone know of a drum machine that is compatible with Apogee Duet? Or maybe, hopefully I have overlooked an option that would allow me to connect the Alesis. All replies and advice is appreciated, especially from anyone who has actually used some of this equipment.
