    I am new to Logic.

    Does anyone know how to get my TD-3 pads to map properly to Logic's drum instruments?

    Thank you!

    Hi Stentor,

    The mapped instrument is what you are looking for. Create one in the environment. Cable it to the soft synth you want to trigger. Use the mapped instrument as your Track Instrument.

    By default your TD 3 pads are probably assigned to general midi mapping, as are most of the standard EXS 24 instrument kits. So, th basic pads (kik, snare, tom, cymabls, hi hats) should trigger the correct sounds by default for the most part. But if you want a pad to trigger a different note, go in to the mapped instrument, tap on the pad and see what incoming note it is assigned to, and then just route that to a different note within the mapped instrument. It's fairly straight forward.

    Good luck.

    I really apreciate the help.

    So, where do i find the mapped instrument?

    When I open a new track my options are only audio, software instrument and external midi.

    I can't find any of this info in the help or manual.

    You need to create it from under the "new" menu in the Environment Window. You cannot do it directly from the Arrange Window.
