Can the HD Pro be used as midi interface?
by IAmColossus on 2013-01-31 21:29:46

I'm trying to use my Roland TD-3 electric drumkit to trigger midi in Reaper. I've set everything up DRUMS>POD>REAPER. And enabled the Pod HD as a midi device but I still can't get it to record.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, the HD Pro and HD500 do not act as a Midi -->  USB Interface. 

I think that the HD 3/400 might do but that does not help you.

none of the pods can do this, not even the 300/400.

you need a seperate midi interface.

The POD MIDI implementation is not a complete/compliant implementation. It does not handle many standard MIDI commands, in particular the note on/off commands that are critical for recording a midi sequence.

basically for talking to other gear, synchronizing time and effects changes that kind of thing...
