I play drums, electric and acoustic

Ardour recognizes my simmons sd600 just fine, records midi track great. the track is multi just like i need. right now the drum track plays kb tones. How do i change these to drum sounds? or how can I record my drums and they sound like drums as i am recording so i don’t have to go back and change?

Change the plugin on the track to a drum plugin (AV Drumkits for instance) or load a drum library into a more generic sampler like AceFluidsynth etc.

Run audio lines from the drum kit to audio inputs on your computer and record audio tracks but you won’t be able to edit the MIDI to change the sounds in that case.


Thank you for your help
