Getting started with electronic drums

Melodics supports electronic drum kits – here’s what you need to know.


Mapping your drum kit

Mapping your MIDI drumkit to work with Melodics

Kit not detected? Here’s what to do.

First, ensure your kit is connected before starting up Melodics.

Melodics should support most MIDI drum kits out of the box – if yours doesn’t seem to be working correctly however, try mapping it manually.

  1. Open “Settings” from the menu at the top of Melodics.
  2. Select ‘Map your controller’.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to map your kit.

If you’re still not able to get it going, hit us up in-app via the “feedback” option in the menu, or head over to our support page and we’ll do our best to get you going.



Quick start / restart.

Reaching for the spacebar might be a liiiiiitle annoying when sitting at your kit, so we’ve added a shortcut to start or restart the step – just hit the kick & hi hat pedal with your feet, and the crash & ride cymbals simultaneously. Easy.



And that's it!

If you're still having issues, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the Support page.
