Hi Folks,
trying to set up my Liveconfiguration for Stageperformance using my TD-20 with Mainstage and Superior Drummer. All this running on a MacMini quadcore i7 with 16GB RAM and two 256GB SSD's.
Now here is the problem I have:
I load SD in a concert in Mainstage and change the MIDI-Mapping to Roland. Now a lot of Mappings are working incorrect. For Example, on Tom 1 I hear a HiHat sound and a Tomsound and on the HiHat just the other way around. The TD-20 sends the correct Midi Notes but somehow SD interprates it in a wrong way.
I tried to clear all the Midi Notes assigned to tom and HiHat and reassign it manually. But the same configuration of sounds appear again. Is there a Filterfunction in SD or somewhere else that does these weird things, or am I just to stupid to set it up correctly??
Because of this problem I purchased Reaper as an Alternative to Mainstage. There I tweaked me a correct Mapping Setup for my TD-20 configuration, saved it as a MIDI Preset, saved the SD Drumset as a combined Preset in SD.
Now I tried to import all that under a SD Instance in Mainstage. Importing the combined preset of SD no problem, but loading the Mapping Prese,t that worked perfect under Reaper, was totaly useless under Mainstage.
So I guess that there might be a Filter that changes the MIDI-Note to Sound assign.

Any Ideas???

Yours Ilja

Hi,

if you just open up Superior 2 (currently 2.4.4) in Toontrack solo and select the Roland MIDI Preset and it works as expected, the same should happen in MainStage 2.
If not, some kind of MIDI Input Transforming is taking place in MainStage 2.
Please consult the MainStage 2 manual.

Hi John,
Thanks for the response. I don't know if this is very important, but I'm currently working with mainstays 3.11 .

I'll try your advise and come back later. . . .

Same problem.
In Mainstage 3.1.1 (the last stable version), my TD30 doesn't give the rights sounds in SD2.
No midi "transform, no filter (i have tested to filter midie sensing, controlers... with my MOTU MidiExpress without changes ). I continue to search but it's a shame to not to have just MIDI Preset file to load in SD2 to have a default stting for TD30 and SD2. I passed a lot of time on PC and now I have to start again with the Mac :-/ Please, Toontrack, give us settings presets, or by default, list of articulations/midi note. Thanks

Hi Guys,
I think this is really a Mainstage Problem!
I don't know what's wrong but I only had this Problem in Mainstage.
Checked the Roland Midi Preset in TT Solo and in Reaper and it worked fine!
Only Mainstage gives me that problem.
That's why I changed to Reaper.
@Procman: why do you want use Mainstage? Just to change between different Drumsets on demand?
Or do you also want to do some Soundtweaking??
If you just want to change between different Drumsets, you can manage this also in TT Solo.
If you want to know how, just let me know 😉
Are 16 Sets enough??
