Hello...newbie here...I have Studio Drummer which I am trying to multi-output into Logic Pro X. I have a Roland V-Drums TD-17 kit. I cannot make them work. I am at my wit's end. I would like to be able to use sounds from Studio Drummer but also the Roland brain (as a secondary sample source). I use a United Audio Volt 2|76 audio interface. There has to be a way to use the three together. Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Exactly "How" do you want to use them together? It is not clear what you are trying to accomplish.

    Sorry about that...I wanted to record drum tracks using the Roland to physically lay the beats down but use the sounds from Studio Drummer and have each drum on it's own track to EQ etc. Is that more clear, I hope?

    I’ve seen videos of people using edrums to trigger drum vsts, so it should be possible. How are you connecting the midi from the Roland

    Load Studio Drummer as an Instrument, then on the options tab in Kontakt, select one of the "TD" midi mapping presets. then send midi out from the TD to Logic and select as an input for the Instrument track.

    here is a video of how to do it with Kontakt Standalone...(different kit but same principle) Maybe start there to at least get the kit working.
