Hello Elsa,

Thanks for the post. I'd like to help! How are your recording with your DM8 kit? Can you explain your setup please? Thanks.

I have the exact same problem. I have the book open to page 20 "recording sequences" and I am following the instructions exactly as printed. I have the following info set: Track: Drums / Rec. Type: Record / Quantize: Off. The instructions say (at step 6)..."Press the module's REC button and record your performance. Problem is the same as Elsa justme.... the recording light never comes on, and there is no recording. I deactivated write protection and confirmed this before trying to record a sequence (if that even matters). Why is the record light not coming on?
