Hey Dave, out of curiosity, how is the hihat performance on the DM10? I see you've gone for a fixed pad and expression pedal style controller, rather than a physically moving hihat. Any reason? Looks like a great setup! Hi Drew The Alesis DM10 kit originally comes with the fixed hat and expression ...

Hi tried the new Beta on OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 but not all instruments play out, for e.g. the snare kick and toms don't play out only the cymbals in two of the presets I tried (Dry Funky 118 and Funk Polished). Gone back to previous version for now, has anyone else had this issue? Dave Hi Dave Thes...

Thanks for donating the map - I've been meaning to look for someone with a DM-10 for a while to make & test a map. If you guys think this map is good to go, I'll add it to the BFD3 installer! Hi Skot if you need any more help /testing let me know, and great if you can share this map to others D...

Hi
I've updated again my alesis DM10 key map. My setup has snare, kick, hi hat,4 toms, two crashes and one ride plus an extra dual pad for percussion. This new map has the correct mapping for the ride cymbal as my previous may have been wrong. Hope this is useful

Thanks Novikthewise I'll give that a try too. Because bfd3 defaults to the highest settings on installation it sadly makes it a bit of a recovery curve to tweak to work on slightly older systems, thankfully there is a great community here to help
I'll pass on any more news soon

Hi well thanks to Jord and Ryan from FXP I have resolved the issue. I removed the second firewire drive and changed the stream and ram buffers in the BFD3 Engine preferences. I also reduced the velocity layers to a lower count, 24. As I'm not running the MBox2 only the internal audio this was ruled ...

External drives are definitely the way to go. Is your BFD3 audio data and your DAW audio on the same drive? If so, I'd recommend getting another drive. Your disk traffic is probably maxing out on the one drive. Is your iMac equipped with Thunderbolt? jord Hi Jord the BFD3 audio data is on firewire ...

Hello there, i cannont recommend using an external drive. Usually these drives are made for mass storage and not for performance. I would move the library to your internal drive and see if this makes it better. Do you also have this issue when settings RAM and Streaming Buffers within BFD3 to its m...

Hi you're welcome, please remember that this is using the default midi mapping within the DM10 so if you have changed the internal MIDI settings this may not work correctly unless you put them back.
