I’m Confused

How can I record my Alesis DM Lite drums??

Hello and I have been trying to record my drums on Garageband and its not working. I have been using the USB port and hooking it up to my Mac via USB, but am not able to record the drums actual sounds.
Also whenI do it this way my high-hat is always open. If you could please get back to me on this topic it would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to do drum covers and I can't do them because of this "problem".

  • Hello David,

    Thanks for posting. I'd like to help! You may need to use a different DAW then that one. The USB/MIDI connection on the module is for use with virtual instruments and recording software. This connection allow for the passing of MIDI information only. If you want to send the actual audio from the module to your computer, connect the main audio outputs from the rear of the module directly to the inputs of an audio interface such as an Alesis iO4 or iO2 Express. For more info on recording audio interfaces, log onto http://www.alesis.com/recording.
