I got a problem with the drum machine, i can´t play the samples inside of the drum machine, and so it is no chance to get a midi out from them.

you tube and the handbook is no solver for that.

please give me an advice. many thanks in advance.

I am sure i could help in some way.. Could you just step by step write what and why are trying to achive?

okay, let me explain the steps.

  1. open the bws.
  2. homescreen in arranger mode
  3. add to the instrument layer the drum machine as a device
  4. choose the sample kit deep kit or anything else
  5. waiting for refreshing of the sample cache
  6. at this time if i do a test in single mode the tone sounds in master with normal volume
  7. then i push the record , play and arranger(automation write) button
  8. i hear a little counttone then a coloured bank is ongoing the drum machine channel but without a tone or sample kit

Have you got an idea?

I am really lost! Single mode what do you mean by that? Also add instrument layer, do you mean you put drum machine inside instrument layer? What do you mean with coloured bank?

That countdown you hear is metronome, it counts down before record. It wont play anything if you havent made any midi notes or if you have not recorded what you play... I am prob aware of that you are also. But do you have skype? We could screen share and help eachother there better =) no cam though needed :)
