I earlier asked for an instrument definition file that describes all of the percussion instruments of each patch 120-127 for each bank, because when I switch to Drum Mode in Cakewalk, I see the different Kits for my Dr5 (and some Roland and Yamaha stuff that I can probably remove) but not the Alesis stuff.

I discovered a couple of things:

With General MIDI turned ON, I see the GM drum kit, but have the situation described above. ALSO, I can't access the Preset 3, the User or my Eurocard. The patches all sound like Preset 2.

With General MIDI turned OFF, I get various Alesis drum kits, but now my patches sound cheesy like cheap Casio GM.

Just when I thought things were fine...

What have I done wrong?????
