This has been bothering me for a while. I have EZDrummer and I want to get away from using the preset grooves. I cannot figure out how to map certain keyboard keys to certain drums in Ableton Live. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I have noooo idea.

By the way is it worth it to get a cheap $100 midi keyboard like this if I occasionally record? I could download VST's for synths and piano too right? http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/msg/2404443737.html

I'm not sure how to configure a keyboard for Ableton, but in my opinion, a far cheaper, simpler, and more effective solution could be to use another program to write to midi, if you know how.

I like to use Guitar Pro 5 for it, myself and I find it to be incredible effective. You *do* have to either know how to read/write drum notation, or guitar pro's weird midi notation, but I think they're easy enough to pick up.

To me, the main advantage is being able to program in things that would otherwise be too fast, or awkward to play with my own hands, being no keyboardist.

Just a thought.
