This is the first time I have tried to use electronic drums through Ableton Live. I use a Focusrite Scarlett interface for other instruments so I am assuming that I will need to do the same for the electronic drums (Roland TD-11). This means finding a cable with a USB type B at one end and a jack plug at the other. Do such cables exist or could I connect straight into the back of the computer? Other people must have had this challenge, any help is gratefully received.
You can connect direct via usb lead to your computer from your TD11. I've just started this but have now stumbled across the issue of additional latency (compared to my existing minilab midi controller) and it not have a 'v drums' allocation in the midi control interface when in the 'link midi' preferences. Good luck
