  • Using VDrums on seperate tracks in Logic

    I'm attempting to do the same thing using logic. Does anyone know if logic works the same way? Can I assign each pad to a different Midi channgel to achieve the same result. Using Logic I can record several tracks at the same time if recording different Midi channels.

    Try this way:
    Record all your Vdrums in one midi track (use channel 10). Once you're happy with the recording do the following:

    -Select your track
    -Go to menu: Functions->Split/demix->Demix by note pitch

    This will split your track into several others, one for each note. In this way you'll have the snare in one track, kick in another, etc.

    BTW, I use this on Logic 5.1 (PC) and 4.8 (MAC)

        At least in Cubase SX you can: MIDI/Dissolve Part
        Probably something similar in Cubasis

          This sounds great! That's exactly what I'm looking for. I'm going to try it out and let you know if it works.

            Hi, I know this is a bit late but for the benefit of others.....Using Logic

            The way I approach this is to open up an instance of EXS (My choice of sampler) in an Audio instrument Channel. Within the sampler I set up a kit and have its Individual sounds routed to different outs (Check your soft sampler to see if it can do this) In the environment I have 8 Aux channels set up and assign these to the corresponding outs from the sampler.
            I then have each sound - Kick,Snare Cymbals etc on a different channel. So I can put effects on individual pieces of kit , Pan independently etc.

            Hope that of interest to someone.
