If your new to all this the first thing to check is both devices are on the same midi channel?

Cheers joey crew.,all it seems to do is play a different note on each drum pad. I just want the timing to be in sync with the up -down arpeggiator, do I need a sync box? It's all a bit new to me.

Hi Paulo n, I have quite a bit of experience with drum m/c to DAW via midi. I split the bass onto a separate midi channel, sometimes further splitting the elements of the bass line into separate channels

I don't see how you can use notes from a drum machine and apply these to a arpeggiator,

as these notes may not relate to the chord being arpeggiated.

Are you using a pre set rythym or creating you own. If you can create your own pattern in separate midi channels in the drum m/c, then it may work by assigning these midi channels in the synth.
