Playing BFD2 through DTX500
 
Hi all. I need some help and I don't really know where to start.

I'm trying to figure out how to hook up my DTX500 module to run through my computer so I can run the BFD2 program as the trigger sounds. I am a complete newb at this, so please spell out every step in as much detail as you think I'll need to understand.

Much appreciation in advance, Defender

You need to connect a midi cable between your DTX and your computer. Then, load up BFD in your DAW (Cubase, Sonar or whatever). In the input area, select the appropriate midi connection. And you should be up and running.

A couple questions... Midi cable between my DTX and computer... would that be a Midi cable to USB connection, or how does that work exactly?

Also, load up BFD in my DAW... What's a DAW?

Lastly, select my appropriate connection... The only Yamaha connection available in BFD2 is "Yamaha DTXtreme" so how exactly do I do this?

Thanks for your help so far. That's already more than I knew.

Peace, Defender
