I connected my Drum set with the midi USB from the module to my PC and tried to setup as a new instrument in Studio One 4 selecting all channels for input but I don't get any sound or movement. My module does have Midi In and Out which could connect directly to my interface as but thought the the USB is a better connection. I tried using Impact as well but nothing happens. Can anyone suggest as solution. Thanks

Hi,  there are a number of threads about connecting V-Drums to Studio One.  In my case I set up a Roland kit to Studio One using midi over USB.  The theory is pretty much the same. You need to set the drum kit as a new keyboard and not a new instrument.  Get receive set to drum kit name.  If your module accepts midi signals being sent to it (the Roland didn't) then set it in the send setting.  Then you should be able to control Impact XT with it.
