  • How do i... [record separate tracks from a DM-5]

    Ok i just got my Alesis DM5 and i'm a little stuck.

    I want to record each drum on different tracks, but theres only 1 output from the module for a stereo recording of the whole kit.

    Will i have to buy a new module which will output each piece? Or is there another way?

    Please help!

    Two ways.

    Most expensive is buy another module. Yikes.

    Most time consuming is to record the MIDI of your performance. Then separate the tracks and play back one instrument at a time while recording the audio. I recorded an entire CD this way and it is a pain, but it works.
