    Using rock band drums for music creation.

    My friend let me borrow the rock band 2 drumkit. But my kids are a bit too young to play still. I wish there were a way to just associate sounds and allow the kids to play around with creating music. Because the drum kit functions like a std. controller and MS gives us XNA it should be possible. Wheres the app at? Looking....
