  • Recording MIDI in separate tracks

    Hey guys. I have a td-12 kit and want to get into recording. My question is, can I tell a recording program like logic pro or pro tools to record my drums via midi, but to seperate each trigger unto its own track. So that after I sesh I have a snare track, kick track etc? Is this possible and if so what keywords do I use to search for more information on this.

    I thought I could kind of do this manually by recording a midi track with all triggers, then cutting each trigger out of the midi track and pasting it into a new clean midi track. I dont want to do this evertime though. any thoughts?

    yes you can separate into 16 MIDI tracks.
    Keep in mind that ProTools is a high end program and needs compatible hardware to work.

    Cakewalk Sonar is better when it comes to MIDI IMO anyways

    Read up on Tweaks Guide in my sig

    My kit is custom running 10, 12, 14" toms, a 12" snare, 2 crash, 1 ride, 1 splash, and dual kick drum all plugged into a
    Roland TD-6V module which runs MIDI to Superior Drummer 2

      In Cubase, you can record to one track, then have it split to separate tracks based on notes. Its a great tool.
