Remember, the trapKAT is a MIDI controller - there are no sounds built in at this time. If your trapKAT isn't playing the sounds from your sound source, try these things to help isolate your problem:
•  Verify trapKAT and Sound Source are ON and are plugged into working AC sockets!  (Do their displays light up?)    
•  Try a compatible AC adaptor if the trapKAT does not beep or “lightup” on power up.  The AC adaptor must have a “positive tip” as designated by this symbol: (   ) and its output should be between 9V and 12V, with 400mA or greater current rating. •  Verify trapKAT MIDI OUT is connected to Sound Source MIDI In.   
•  Try another MIDI cable.
•  Verify Sound Source is OK.  Can it make sounds on its own? (Push its sound buttons and listen with headphones.) Try to control the Sound Source with another controller.
•  Verify trapKAT is alive by depressing the NOTE EDIT footswitch and hitting a Pad.  If you see that Pad come up on the display then the trapKAT is seeing it’s Pads and is alive and running.
•  Call up FactoryKit 1 on the trapKAT (see p.9).  Verify that the Sound Source is On MIDI Channel 10.
•  Disconnect the MIDI cable.  Turn the trapKAT and Sound Source Off. Turn the trapKAT and the Sound Source back on.  Reconnect the MIDI cable.
•  Try REINITIALIZING your trapKAT (See p.30-31).
•  Call Alternate Mode Customer Service (413) 594-5190.
