    i have yamaha dtx express IV digital drums, and am trying to sync with samplitude and abbey road 70's drums -vst (konkakt 5)

    so i can see that midi information is getting in to samplitude, but nothing is coming through the drums. the abbey road drums work perfect with ableton/yahama dtx as far as, - yamaha snare drum pad matching with abbey road snare, etc...
    however! my presonsus 22vsl causes a crackling noise whenever i try to use midi ( i have already called presonus techs, gone through all the optimization, etc... still have problems - also, i highly DO NOT recommend the presonus 22vsl, but now i'm stuck with it) so, i want to record the drums in samplitude (there doesn't appead to be any crackling sounds) and import my beats into ableton.

    so yea, again to clarify my question - how can i get my yahama drum pads to match abbey road drums. please note, that hitting any drum pad on my yamaha dtx does absolutly nothing in abbey road drums, i have mapped out my yahama dtx in ableton showing that :

    hh open - A#1hh closer - F#1
    kick - C1
    tom 1 - c2
    tom 2 - b1
    tom 3 - g1
    ride - d#2
    snare - d1
    side snare - E1
    other symbol - C#2 - B2

    with the keyboard pulled up under abbey road drums there is nothing being triggered by hitting the pads, though the MIDI light blinks in samplitude.

    please help !

    and is there a simpler program or something
    i need to record drums!!

    Sounds like you need to setup your midi channels too.

    Start a new session using the 16 midi channel template. It will automatically create 1 thru 16 midi tracks. Enable them. See if you are getting one of the 16 channels to respond.
