Use MIDI just as trigger for Behringer TD-3 patterns

Questions about producing? Ask them here.
Hi!

Noobest of nooby noobs over here.

I bought a Behringer TD-3 out of nostalgia, guess I can't afford a convertible for my midlife crisis, and I would like to use it with LMMS.

I am generaly able to get it working, both as input and output, attached to various instruments within LMMS. But what I would like to do is simply to use LMMS as a trigger for the patterns inside the TD-3. So it should sync with a drum track I am making in LMMS, but otherwise play its own pattern "independently".

Do you think there's a way I can do that?

Sorry, but that is not possible afaik. LMMS is meant to be the synthesizer. Iow, you connect a MIDI-Keyboard to the PC, and then use LMMS' embedded soft-synths as tone-generators.
The other way around is not supported
