Finally I was able to create a tabla drum kit using a set of sound files. Now I am trying to create a pattern using the new drum kit. Since it is too hard to do it real time, I am using a computer sequencer.

I tried to record a pattern using pattern edit and then selecting "midi record". When I press "record" and then "start", the computer sequencer starts playing the sequence. Also I can hear the sounds coming from SD1. But after the number of pre-selected bars has been completed, "record" is switched to "play" automatically. But if I press start again, there is no sound other than the metronome. According to the manual the recorded pattern should play back. So even though the midi data were received on the midi input, they were not recorded. Does anybody know what the problem is? I was following the owner's manual instructions to the letter. Any help will be appreciated.
