Hey John, made it. I had to format the pen drive to Mac OS Extended (not journaled). Then formatted with the module, placed the file like you told me and finally made it. Very grateful for your assistance.

One last thing I'd like your help is, what configuration do you recommend me to do with BFD2 settings for optimal performance. I'm running BFD2 with Pro Tools from an Imac with a 2.66 Ghz intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB 800 mhz DDR2 SDRAM. Right now I have BFD installed on my computer HD and all the expansion packs on an external 500 GB 7200 rpm drive.
I started using it with my module connected with a usb cable to my computer but then changed it to a midi cable thru my DIGI 002, which connection do you recommend, usb cable or midi 5 pin cable?

Thanks a lot.

Andy

Glad it is working for you.

Do all of your set up work in stand alone with the USB cable.

What version of Pro Tools do you have? The issue with the 002, I believe is the buffer settings can't go down below 128 depending on the version of Pro Tools. I am on PT 10 and use a Yamaha 01V96I. I always plug the kit in via USB.

I believe you need to use the MIDI connection on the 002. Try it. You should be ok depending on what else is going on in the recording.

Good Luck!

Thanks John.

Tried it with the MIDI cable and the usb cable and I didn't find any difference. One thing thou the rim shot sounds louder than the actual snare sound on the pad.

Do you have any recommendations on how many voices, velocity layers max cache buffer should I use with my computer configuration?(Imac with a 2.66 Ghz intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB 800 mhz DDR2 SDRAM. Right now I have BFD installed on my computer HD and all the expansion packs on an external 500 GB 7200 rpm drive. ) What ram buffer and stream buffer should I use? Should I use 16bit

I installed all the expansion with a full install(127 voices).

Thanks Andy

Re: The snare pad..... That is the way it triggers, but you can make up individual adjustments in BFD2 in two locations.
1. Velocity curve for the Rim Shot area.
2. Artic Trim in the Kit Piece Inspector.

Try 16384 for the buffer settings in BFD2 as a starting point. I always use 16Bit unless I am doing a final bounce. Always install the full amount for BFD2 expansions.

Now that you are up and running the best thing to do is get familiar with BFD2 and the manual. It will help you in the long run to understand everything that is going on with your system. If you get really stuck we are here to help.

Good Luck and happy drumming!
John

Here is a set of new Yamaha drum maps for the DTX900, DTXremeIII, DTX700, and DTX500.

Please add the map files to your maps folder inside your documents area for BFD2 and/or Eco.

There is also a set of files that are uploaded into the DTX900/DTXremeIII and DTX700. Those then become plug and play.


Hey John, really excited to find these files you created. Thank you so SO much! HUGE help.
