I am a total beginner. Had recently bought an Alesis DM Lite edrums kit. It has 10 built in drum kits and USB Midi output. It works fine with MacBook / GarageBand.
However, individual instruments inside a kit cannot be changed from the Alesis DM Lite box. For example swap the ride cymbal with cowbell / tambourine / clap / second crash.
Did not manage to do that from GarageBand either. There is MidiPipe that allow to replace midi codes and send into GarageBand , but it is very basic.
EZDrummer, Addictive Drums and the like cost at least 200 euros and are overkill with too many features.
Is there simpler & cheaper software for beginners that allows to replace individual Midi instruments , save the "settings" and output sound?
