Midi out Into Strike MultiPad
« on: May 02, 2019, 06:41:10 PM »
So is anyone using midi to utilize the sounds of the Strike Multipad from a standard kit, like a DM 10 kit, in my case?

Even if not, do you think I could actually do it? Use my kit as it is, with my DM10 module, and then assign the sounds from the Multipad?

That's an interesting idea.  Go from the DM10 to the MultiPad, then out to the PA.  If it works, it would definitely breathe some new life into the possibilities of the DM10.

If it DOES work that way, I would assume you could also trigger imported sounds and samples? 

I've never used a MultiPad, but the Strike is on my list to add to my Strike kit at some point in the (hopefully) near future.  I do still have my DM10 module as a backup and for practice.  Right now, though, since I'm using some of my loops and samples in the band's set, I have to transport my Strike module for practice.  It would be a whole lot easier to just transport the MultiPad and only have to connect Midi vs. all the input cables.

I want a Strike kit SO BAD!!!
I also REALLY want that crazy-awesome Strike MultiPad.

I do love my DM10X Mesh... I really do.

Yeah, I think that, if we can midi out of the DM10 module into the Strike MultiPad, and access the sounds while still using the DM10 as the controller, we'd definitely be able to assign ANY of the available sounds, including custom ones.

I just think that would open up a whole new realm for me.

If I don't get an answer here, I'll check with Bill R. at Alesis.

I have the Multipad and the STRIKE module in a midi loop.
You can trigger the samples, you can also set the pads/footswitches into sync groups to trigger a sample or group samples.

Since the DM10 has the extra 35 notes you could connect a TMI(Trigger I/O,DM DOCK etc) and assign not only the internal DM10 sanples but send midi out to the Multipad (currently has 19 zones with 2 layers (A+B) which supposedly at a later date will be 38 when a midi note is added to layer B.)and layer/mix those with the DM10 internal samples.
I have chained Multiple DM Docks for expansion as it has a touch screen interface (iPad) with different apps running on each,the midi note in is assigned a different note than the midi note out..per trigger.
You can get setup a nice midi rig triggering DMX lighting and outboard gear.
There is also a MIDI player coming out early fall.. it's mentioned in the post.
I am a backer on it and looking forward to exploiting the nki import and open source GUI as I have done a lot of Kontakt scripting over the years and have multitudes of Drum Kit's including "Artists Kits" already done.I will be focusing mainly on a Drummers GUI.
I am waiting patiently for a SDK , last time I got ahead of myself designed one in Lemur for a DAW/DM10/DM DOCK and had to abandon it as I got no help from Alesis at all for the remaining midi info I needed to make the faders/volumes work on the DM10 and a NRPN for the DM DOCK.
Alesis didn't even do a User Guide for it.
