Do you need multiple outputs from AD, so that you have separate tracks to work with in Cubase?
Already have AD installed and running?
Shoulda waited for a few minutes, before signing out.
I am still not "feeling it," when it comes to creating drum tracks.
Do you generally recommend individual outs?
Is it better to program note by note, use pre-recorded clips or learn to play "finger drums" on pads.
Part of my problem is that there are too many ways to do it.
I'm a guitar player, and I compare it to trying to program all the guitar parts, instead of just playing the damn guitar part on a guitar.

Creating drum tracks, is something that comes from playing drums. What a drummer plays, is what he feels works in a given song. It might be more than what you want (Complex drums), it might be less (Sparse drums). It is a personal touch, just like any other player of any other instrument. Also, it is completely genre dependent. You want a metal drummer, playing Jazz? I don't. Good, and bad ones, for any style, are up to the creator/writer to decide..That would be you. Playing like a drummer would, be what I suggest you try to do first, then try to find someone who can do what you want, in a more natural way..
OR: Get a drummer, or someone who plays one on forums, to play drum tracks for you. If you are having issues with your own playing of programmed tracks, then ask someone to play a track for you, or program a drum track for a song. I'm not sure how to teach someone how to play a drums. It's a drummer thing I guess.
Hopefully, that last comment, did not make you assume that I will play a drum track for you. lol! It really, would depend upon how busy I am, how worthy your tune is, and what color your panties are. Careful here. lol!
I'm a bass player, who plays the drummer role, when I feel spunky.
I know my questions were more appropriate to the drumber forum, but your advice was still much appreciated.

What I want to learn is how to trigger the AD-kit with MIDI. Keep in mind that I've never worked with MIDI before.
One thing that confuse me are the volume faders beneath the kit, which do nothing (when klicking the drum-images, volume stays the same).
How am I supposed to adjust their individual levels when mixing?
My plan is to pan the drums across the stereo-field, so individual tracks/outputs is a must.

Naw man, you already have a stereo output from AD. I think we may have a contradiction of terms. Multiple outputs from AD, is just a way to control aspects of each 'instrument', separately from the programs own internal outputs.
AD is capable of doing much of what you seem to need, without setting up multiple outputs.
Are you wanting/using an external controller? If not, you can use the 'Virtual Keyboard' option, to program drum tracks.
Now, it is important to know what it is you wish to do right now. I do not understand what you are doing/and with what, just yet.
entirely sure how to connect the MIDI-notation to the individual kit pieces.
Hope this gives you more of a clue of what I want. Or maybe I just didn't understood your question correctly.
