Default Simple question about recording with TD-12's

Hey ya'll. Had my TD-12's for about 5 months now and they are amazing. I still can't figure out how to record my own beats/tracks without the metronome playing. It makes it ridiculously hard to record me covering a song or playing anything, really. Anyone know precisely how to do it? The kit was previously owned so the settings might be a little off...

Thanks for any help..I'll delete the thread after I get my answer, I know its in the wrong forum

Actually you are in the wrong place but I'll let others worry about that.

Recording on a TD12 is pretty straight-forward.

You press record. The display will show a track number, say 154, and you will need to edit the recording settings. Use the cursor/edit button t do this. Make sure your BPM is correct. Then decide if the pad hit is to start recording or you go for a count in. Then you press record, or hit a pad, and you are recording. The click track should not sound in the playback.

If it does you need to check the edit info.

Cheers, where you from mgood41?

Thanks Davo, I'll mess around with it when I get home.

I'm from Dallas, Texas...Started drumming when I was 11, took a little break from 15-18, and picked it up again about 2 years ago...Going on twenty this February, still working hard to perfect my skills everyday. Excited I found this site- seems like a great swell of drum knowledge from alot of experienced players.

I wondered where you were from as I thought I could help if you were local. That is clearly not the case.

I also have a TD12.

Have fun with it.

I also got a question about recording on my Rolands(td9 btw)
How do I transfer a recording from the Roland to my computer? I've tried with a usb-pen, but I only get these .td9 files. I'd like to transfer them to my computer, so I can listen to them there.

You can record them onto your PC as audio or midi files.

I've done both. You will need an audio interface though, such as Tascam, Edirol etc

this is helpful: http://homerecording.about.com/od/ho..._interface.htm

then you plug in your Roland to your interface and then from the interface into the PC (USB).

Then you load up garage band or logic for mac users or cakewalk/protools/cubase etc for PC. Open up a new file and audio tracks. You can then either playback the roland pre-recorded loop or just record direct from the roland to the pc/mac. Recording midi is cool because it is really easy to edit all those little timing errors!!!

Cheers
Davo
