  • A TD-30, Reaper and an Audio problem all walk into a bar.....

    Hi guys,

    I've got a small question that I would really appreciate some hep with!!!

    I've recorded and edited three songs as Midi tracks in Reaper. I can play them back via the module absolutely fine. What I would like to do now is to take all of the midi tracks and convert them to audio. For this I am playing the tracks back through the module and then out of the module via the Direct Outs to a mixing desk which is then fed back into Reaper.

    And that is where the problem is! I can solo the tracks on Reaper so I only hear the 8 tracks that I plan to record. That is fine. But as you can see from the picture, the hats have come out on five channels but I have no idea how to get the TD-30 to play each of the tracks simultaneously to different Direct Outs....

    This problem will also come up with the crashes and the ride as well so it would amazing if I could solve this without the need to record EVERY part separately (as in, it would take 5 plays of the track just to get the 5 hi-hat tracks).

    Does this make sense and, more importantly, does anyone know how I can solve this???!!!

    I'm no MIDI expert, but couldn't you use Reaper to merge the 5 MIDI tracks into one? Then send that to your TD30.

    If that doesn't work, if the song is not 25 minutes long, is it really that much trouble to record 5 tracks and then merge them? That's how they used to do in the old days.... worked out pretty nice for a bunch of bands... just like Pink Floyd, ....

        In the TD-30 Mixer you can assign outputs to specific channels.
        Does that help??
