Korg Beats through external instrument

I've synced up the Volca Beats through midi and the external instrument option and saved it into a drum rack and it works fine. The only problem I'm having is that I cannot seem to pan or use effects properly on the different drum hits. Opening up the chain for each hit I can add effects, volume, panning etc. Except that they don't seem to work properly. The panning does nothing. When I solo an drum I only get a faint reverby version of it, with all the other instruments playing faintly behind it. I'm pretty sure there's something I'm missing but I don't know what it is. Surely it must be possible to pan the different drums and add effects to them using external instrument?

    The panning issue probably has something to do with the signal that the Volca puts out. I've seen some similar problems on other forums. Maybe try searching for this issue on a Korg forum? There are more people talking about this issue.
