Hmmm maybe I spoke too soon...the above all works fine except when I then try to add automation to some of the parts in the arrange page. The aux channels do not seem to recognise automation on the midi tracks...
Thanks for these they are really helpful! I have always been a bit wary of the environment view but this helps get more used to it. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite let me do what I want though (unless I am doing something wrong )
I can create a multi-out guru, assign pads to aux channel strips and add processing to each drum but once done I cannot then automate the effects in the arrange window.
I am beginning to think this is not possible as the effects apply to the aux strips and not the channel strip that appears in the arrange window. Any thoughts?
