Roland R8 Mk 2 with sonar and external midi controler

Postby OBINNO » 12:53, 4 July 2015

Hi,

I'm trying to use the Roland R8 Mk 2 with sonar and am also trying to use a midi controler to trigger the sounds rather than the pads on the machine. The keys on the controler don't correspond with the pads: what I mean is that that the sounds that come up when I use the controler are much different than the current sound bank I have pulled up on the machine which the pads activate, (hope that makes sense.) This isn't the case with later units like the Boss Dr880. If I use a midi controler with the Boss, I get the same drum kit/sounds that I have pulled up on the machine. Is this just because the r8 is an older unit and midi layout is different? Is there a way to correct this problem? Also, are there any instrument definition files for the r8 mk 2 with sonar? Thanks.
