    Default Mimic midi mapping issues with V-Drum Tutor DT-1

    Anyone have experience correctly mapping their midi output to V-drums tutor or maybe just general midi mapping? Looks like the midi numbers are all wacky and can't seem to get the hi hat to perform open/closed action at all (using FSR trigger at pedal). Tom and cymbals don't seem correct either. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi,

    The midi note numbers on the Mimic do not follow the Roland map.

    You would have to go in and change them on the Mimic to have them line up.

    This is the first request concerning the V Drum tutor and we are not familiar with the program.

    The Mimic Hi Hat transmits the open and close on midi channel 4.

    You would have to be able to have the V Drum Tutor receive the info in Omni mode and that would cover both channels 10 and 4.

    Default Solution for Mapping V-Drum Tutor DT-1

    The correct MIDI mapping cannot be accomplished with the Mimic Pro and DT-1 alone. The hi-hat controller signal on the Mimic Pro is on Channel 1 and the DT-1 listens for the hi-hat controller on Channel 10. This cannot be altered. You can, however, use two third-party software applications to allow V-Drum Tutor DT-1 to work properly.

    Download MIDI-OX. Download LoopBe1. Setup MIDI-OX to use your MIDI device as input. Setup MIDI-OX to use LoopBe1 as the output.
    Setup up a rule that flips any signal on Channel 1 to Channel 10. You can now direct V-Drum Tutor DT-1 to use LoopBe1 as the MIDI input device and the hi-hat will work.

    Note that this process can be used to change any of the incoming MIDI channels and/or notes. This means you can do all your custom MIDI assignments in MIDI-OX for use in EZDrummer, Superior Drummer, etc.
