Portable Drum Kit

I connected two of the piezos in order to test the full path from the DKKAI all the way to GarageBand.

I used a midi keyboard to map out some notes (more on that later…) and I also connected 6 MaceTech ShiftBrites – the Roadie has the ShiftBrite connector and lights up a specific ShiftBrite for each drum pad…

In this video, I’m using the iPad MIDI Monitor app to watch the USB MIDI commands – this lets me see the note, and the velocity for each drum pad hit.
