: Hi everyone.
I'm sort of "green" with Midi (I understand the Basics, I think?). But I'm trying to figure out how to use my Casio WK1350 w/ my Boss DR-550 drum machine. My question for now is "what do I have to do to get the drum machine to play(in-sync)it's programmed parts?" I'm assuming that the drum machine is programmed with my beats first, from the first measure to the last(song)right? Then you'd have to have the keyboard tell the drum machine to "turn on" (like pressing play on a tape player)at a certain point in the performance, right? How do I do this? My Casio has a 6-Track sequencer built in and I want it to direct the drums when to play. Thanks.
