DM10 Studio MIDI Settings For Roland FriendJam
« on: August 02, 2013, 10:19:54 PM »
I'm sorry in advance if this has already been posted but I searched the forums and didn't find anything like this.

I just downloaded the Roland FriendJam program (http://www.roland.com/FriendJam/V-Drums/download/) and wanted to see if it would work with my DM10 Studio.  After trial and error, I came up with the following MIDI settings to properly send to FriendJam via USB. 

During the program setup, choose the "V-Pro Series TD-30" as your kit.
From the home screen on the DM10:
1. <INST>
2. <MIDI>
3. Change the parameters of the following triggers to these settings:

All= MIDI Chan: 10; Gate Time: OFF; Note Off: SENT

MIDI Note:
Kick1=36
SnrHd=38
Tom1Hd=50
Tom2Hd=47
Tom3Hd=43
Perc3(Tom4Hd)=41
HiHat=46
Crash(Chokable)=49
Prc2Hd(SingleZoneCrash)=57
Ride(3-Zone)=51

The HiHat pedal worked by default.

Your mileage may vary, but it worked like a charm for me.   ;D

I used the following settings to get the Dm10 to work with Roland DT-1: http://www.dmdrummer.com/index.php?topic=2753.msg20663#msg20663
DM10 Pro kit with dampened rack, extra crashes, mesh heads, Gibraltar stands, P2002C and a dream cherry snare by Diamond Drums.

So if I am using a DM10 studiox, would you set this up with say a TD 20? You have to have triggers for all your pads I would assume?

This is a great idea and might have to check it out.

How has experience been for those who have used it?

And more importantly, is anyone aware of whether Alesis has thought of this or something similar?
