modules with no midi in
« on: June 14, 2015, 12:16:49 AM »

Is there a way to make a zendrum work with the newer modules (Roland TD-25, TD-15, etc) that don't have midi in?  I know Alternate Mode sells midi to usb cables to go directly into your computer.  Could a cable like that go directly into the module to receive midi?

The manuals would indicate a 'no'.  There is no mention of MIDI IN or playback of recordings made via MIDI OUT.  Perhaps more telling though is there is no MIDI implementation chart.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'm maybe not being clear or I'm misunderstanding your reply.  I'm not talking about somehow turning the midi out into a midi in, I'm talking about doing some sort of midi to usb conversion and sending midi from the zendrum into the module usb port.  If one of these modules is plugged into a computer, it can receive midi from a sequencing program like Logic or Digital performer so it seems possible.
