Hi, I just bought a midi cable to hook up my electronic drums. Before I was using 1/4 inch patchcords and it worked. How do I hook it up with the midi cable? I mean I plugged the cable into the midi in on the interface (motu 8 pre) and out of the midi out from my drum kit (Yamaha DTX Express 3). Do I need to plug two cables? The guy in the store said I only need one, but there is a midi in and midi out on both the drumkit and the motu. Was he wrong, do I need them both plugged in? I can't seem to figure out how to record. When I make a new track should I choose software instrument track or real instrument track? Is there something else I need to do to get GB to recognize the kit? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
