Sorry for the dramatic subject heading, but I have a pressing problem that I need help with. Last week I posted a comment in this same forum asking whether or not the Yamaha DTX582K e-kit could be used on a PS3 to play RB3. Several of you were kind enough to confirm that, yes, the DTX582K was compatible, so long as I had the right hardware/software --- a USB to midi cable cable and a program for the PC called MIDI-OX.
A few days ago I decided to take the plunge and actually buy the DTX582K. I then tracked down the USB to midi cable adapter and MIDI-Ox, and, using a video tutorial provided by FujiSkunk, tried to get things up and running. Unfortunately, I failed miserably. Part of the problem was that MIDI-OX was freezing up on a regular basis, but it also wasn't detecting the midi-pro adapter, despite detecting both my new drum kit and the USB to midi cable.
So...I was hoping that someone out there in customs land could offer me some advice on how to get my new kit ready for use on RB3. I don't care if it involves tweaks to the MIDI-OX approach or an all new strategy/set-up --- I just want to play RB3 with my new drum kit.
Here's the equipment I'm using:
- Yamaha DTX582K drum kit
- a brand new (bought it in August) HP PC that's running the latest version of Windows
- the Mad Catz midi pro adapter
- a USB-to-midi cable
- a jailbroken PS3
Thanks in advance!
