Hi Christian, I decided to drive my Volca Beats with Zaquencer yesterday evening, and it was the first time I used the drum track mode.
Then I sat up track 3 as drum track, and on first 7 buttons of the button rows I put kick, snare, toms, hi hats, claps etc on the related midi notes.
Volca on channel 10, rx messages on, pushing the 7 buttons, I can hear the assigned volca sounds play.
Then when I go recording in TR mode, and I insert the steps in the encoder, starting with kick and snare: no sound.
I went crazy for an hour then I decided to go on with the other instruments: clap worked, one tom and hi hat worked, so it came out it’s a problem with the sequence related to instr. 1 and 2 (and other). I put kick on instrument 8: it worked. On 9: it didn’t.
Do you know what could be happening?
Also (but not sure about this, will test again): tap recording seems not to work.
Waiting for your answer,
kudos on checking out the Drum mode!
From what you tell, the only explanation I can think of would be that individual drum channels are muted.
Have you looked in “Mixer Mode”? Make sure that in Mixer mode, no one of the 16 top left buttons are continuously lit, because this will mute the corresponding drum instrument.
Either that, or the drum note mappings in global menu could be wonky, but it sounds like you checked that out.
