Hi. I've searched, but I'm such a newb to MIDI that I don't even know what to search for.
Here's my problem: I'm trying to import some MIDI tracks from that "other" DAW, since I'm switching to the superior Samplitude. But no matter what options I select for the import, I get several problems:
This is for the Abbey Road White Drum Kit.
1. I cannot get each drum to go to it's own separate track so I can put FX on them individually.
The file may play nicely, but I can't find the channels in the mixer! LOL!
2. When I trigger one event with my MIDI keyboard, say, one hit on the kick drum, it says 7 voices are playing.
This is causing skips and crackles in my recording so bad I can't record with anything less than 40ms latency, which is useless for tracking guitars through a software amp. But since it's playing 7 voices, that leads me to believe I've wired it up wrong.
3. When I finally do get separate channels, and find them in the mixer, the first time I touch a fader to make an adjustment, that particular instrument (say, the snare drum) drops out! I get no sound from that point on.
I think this stuff may be easy for you guys to figure out, but to me it's just baffling. I've watched a lot of Kraznet's tutorials, and I thought I was doing it right. I've tried all the options: Single track, multi-timbral, mutli-channel/track, etc.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks so much!
