new to midi: how to make single midi drum tracks on protools

Postby ALEXHWANG » Sun May 03, 2009 7:29 am

hi i'm a little new to using midi, but i was wondering if somebody could help me or direct me to a previous post where it explains to you how to give each drum piece it's own individual midi track. it would be greatly appreciated

Should be easy enough. Put BFD on it's own Instrument Track, then add as many midi channels as you need. In the Mix Page, just make sure the Output for each Midi Track is set to BFD. You now split your midi over the available midi tracks.

Hey I think what he means is, should each drum hit be on a separate midi channel and if so how
to route that within BFD to the mix window.
