  • TD12, record midi to DAW (Reaper), run back thru module to record onboard sounds

    Hi

    100 years ago I did a recording in Cubase using TD12 and BFD2. I do not now have either Cubase or BFD2! Anyway, the experience was good. What I would like to do this time, for intra-band demos, is record the TD12 using its on-board sounds but have editing capability. Here is what I think will happen:

    1) I connect midi out lead into my Edirol UA-25-EX, and Edirol into computer.
    2) I press record and play along with the song tempo map.
    3) I edit the drumming to ensure accuracy (!!!) in the Reaper midi editor.
    4) I send the quantized midi back to the module and record back into Reaper.

    What I don't know:

    1) How do I record the on-board sounds on separate tracks back to Reaper?
    2) Can I monitor the kit sounds when I record the midi (say using mono (L) out to an amp)?
    3) Is there a special midi track in Reaper, as there was in Cubase, I need to open to record to?

    4) How do I open the midi editor in Reaper - double click the track?

    I know about the maximum four outs btw, and that you have to record back in stages, you can't do the lot at once.

    Cheers for any help, I am no Trevor Horn. Not yet.

    I don't know how to use Reaper myself as I use Cubase. What you really need to do though if you find out how to is duplicate the track as many times as you need to and then in the first copy delete note values so you only have 4 and do this on all the tracks so the note values (Notes meaning snare, kick toms etc) are spread across the tracks. You can then mute them all except one and play this back recording the output. Then mute that track and unmute the next and do the same until you have all the drums recorded. How many inputs does the Edirol have? If only two then you will have to duplicate the track quite a few times. Sorry I don't know any more about Reaper. There is a manual for it online.
    Roland TD30 module on TD20 kit SD3 with various kits. Pearl Masters Kit, Yamaha 9000RC original natural wood finish. Cymbals from Zildgian Pasite and Sabian. Loads of percussion bits. Cubase and Wavelab always current versions.

      You could just record the TD12 soundtrack into an audio track, and use any of the VST plug ins that allow you to bend audio, change pitch, etc ... Something like Melodyne can do... Many DAWs have that capability built in now.
