Am I to assume that what you want to do is select the various rythms using midi commands ? I.E. A midi patch change would change the rythmn to the corresponding patch number.

If so, the starting point is to look at the switches that are used to select the beats, and see how many contacts each has. A schematic would be invaluable if you can find one.

Hi Jim and thanks for the reply.. Erm what id like to do is to control each piece of the drums sound set via midi. So that i can create patterns using my midi setup...and not be restricted to just presets...

For that we will definitely need the schematic to see how the drum sounds are created and triggered. If they are sample based and generated via a CPU then there is probably no hope of creating external triggering for each individual sound but if they are not then there is a possibility but to know, a schematic is a necessity.

Hi TheTommy, welcome.

The author of this video used an HL product to retrofit the Rhythm Ace:

He happened to use the MIDI2600 to do it, but the MD24 is definitely the better choice.

There is also this thread:

If you can identify the parts of the drum machine circuitry that will generate a drum sound in reponse to a logic pulse (either by being grounded or from a high-state logic signal), it should be a straightforward mod.
