I just purchased the IKM MODO Drum, already have the MODO Bass.

To my disappointment my existing 10 groovemonkee midi libraries do work with the MODO Drum.

I got the following reply from the groovemonkee Russ:

”I believe that MODO is a closed system. You cannot add additional MIDI files.
We do provide the files with a MODO mapping (I did it after getting several requests). But you have to import them into your DAW and set the output to MODO.
The company did contact me and I agreed to work with them. However, I have not heard back from them. I am always willing to work with these companies to have a better user experience.
Best Regards,
Russ
Groove Monkee”

How can this be the case in 2020?

What do you mean ”what’s wrong”?
Wrong is, that although you happen to have several thousands Midi grooves mapped the MODO Drum format, you can’t use the MODO Drum browser, sort the grooves, and pre-play grooves inside the browser, in the way you do with the MODO Drum factory grooves.

IKM has made the system closed, and will not open it. Most stupid and shortsight policy!

I can only hope that they change their mind.
