help with drum soundfonts

Postby breid » Mon Oct 13, 2003 3:48 pm

I'm a newbie recently shifting from Pro Audio 9 to Sonar 2.2 and having a
problem using Soundfonts with my Sound Blaster Live.

I have a number of "drum kit" soundfonts that I like to use. Under PA9, I
would simply assign the track to a Sound Blaster channel, load the Soundfont via the menu, then use the drop down menu to select the appropriate Soundfont and bank. Then in the pattern editor I could tick a drum map and go with it, on any channel.

Under Sonar 2.2, my Drum related soundfonts are not showing up. They load OK in the Soundfont windows, but all I see in the dropdown are melodic instruments.

I tried playing with the Drum map editor, but I couldn't find a place to use
them there either.

Any help? TIA.
