FWIW, it happens on the majority of SDX and EZX library kits. There are
three kits that I've found so far that automatically assign the
tambourine to a mic channel - The Avatar, Classic and Vintage and the

new mic channel.

I have tried this method there still is no sound. The tambourine lights
up-just no sound...
It's EZ! Just right click your tambourine X-Pad so that in the
