You don’t need a special Asio driver on a Mac book pro. Or on any Mac. On your Mac search for the midi setup app. This will allow you to configure connected midi input and output devices  

Thanks!

Hi, does this work with the TD 25 as well… Do you know? I have tried every possible combination that I can think of and I cannot get the sound to be routed through the TD 25 module when connected via USB to my MacBook Pro. The sound for only come out the MacBook Pro and not through the audio output of the TD25 itself. I saw in an earlier post it suggested to monitor SD3 through the drum module unit, in that case the TD 30.

Maybe the TD 25 is not capable of this but I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks,
Derek

Hi Derek. Sorry I don’t have a td25 so I don’t know if it works. If td25 supports usb audio then it should. Have you confirmed that you have td25 configured for midi output ? On your MacBook Pro go to System preferences / sounds / output / select td25. Do the same for the input

Hi, thanks for your response. I just tested my MacBook Pro connected to the TD 25 via USB [which is the method I normally use] and went into the sound settings within the settings application within the MacBook. The TD 25 does not show up at all as an option to select for either input or output… it just shows the normal system option. I know when I have other devices what you're referring to as they will show up as a connected device to use for input-output. I have tested this with of the driver options within the TD 25 itself, the first being the vendor or Roland driver and the second being the generic driver and neither show up.

Thanks,
Derek

Did you install the driver from the Roland support site? The TD25 has audio in and out via USB. MIDI may work with the generic MIDI driver, but USB audio needs the Roland driver.

Hi Reiner,

Thanks for your response. Yes I did download and install the Roland driver from their support site. For whatever reason my MacBook still does not see it as the input output audio device… Which is kind of strange.

Thanks,
Derek

Wow bad news. I suggest trying another usb cable. Also confirm in your td25 setup that usb mode is turned on. This stuff “just works” so it may be a hardware issue of some sort. Good luck Derek!

Has anyone, who has SD2 or other SDX EZX expansions tried switching drums around? Ive noticed, like the one Toontrack representative stated, the SD3 kits and cymbals are a lot lower in volume than ones from SD2 and the metal foundry expansion.

hi again. at least for TD-30 (and most likely all Roland modules that have an USB port, i.E the TD-50) owners there seems to be an easy fix for the volume problem:
I've posted this in the latency thread as well because it also fixed my latency issue I had:

Try connecting your Sound Module to your Computer via the USB port. (directly, not via an external interface). Fire up SD3, Open the Audio Midi settings. Select the TD30 as your midi device (make sure you've enabled midi usb in your TD30 module settings), AND select the TD30 as your audio (ASIO) device.
there you go. I get crystal clear, super loud sound with this method. (your headphones need to go into your TD-30 module jack of course)
btw the td30 also comes with a nifty ASIO driver with some settings to play with. just hit the ASIO button under audio device in SD3.  

Hi, I have connected as described above TD-30 directly via USB into my laptop USB. I have SD3 open and TD-30 as midi device, ASIO selected and ASIO device TD-30. I also have usb over midi enabled in the TD-30. I am connected to TD-30 headphone jack and have the phone volum up

If I click (with my mouse) the SD3 on my laptop I get the sounds of SD3 through the headphones....but if I hit the actual snare to trigger the SD3 snare, I get the sound of the kit active in the TD-30. How do I monitor SD3 through the TD-30 and NOT hear the internal kits?

Thanks,
Derek

Turn "Local" of in your TD30 it will help latency too.

Hello, I just purchase SD3 and was fooling around with my Roland TD-4 drums and was having the same problem. I was looking through the menu on the TD-4 and found a pad sensitivity setting. The values on my drums were set around 7. The max setting is 32. I monitored using Cubase as my DAW and adjusted each head up to around 14 and this seemed to help quite a bit. Another thing in Cubase I found recently is to adjust the listen level in the control room and push the L button on the channels you want to monitor and it plays louder. Works great if your a one man band and quicker than setting up the CUE.

Hope this helps...thought I'd toss it out there.

Definitely try changing to an expansion or SD2 library and see if you have the same issue. The SD3 libraries are a lot lower in volume as compared to SD2. My kit is mixed with pieces from SD2, Metal Foundry, and SD3 and I have to raise the volume of pieces from SD3 significantly.
