Assigning different instruments to different keyboard keys

Lazy M Beats

Recommended Posts



This might be a question that has more to do with my keyboard (which i hardly know anything about feature wise) but I'll give it a shot. Please also forgive me if I am not explaining correctly, this might be challenging for me to describe.


I often find myself using a bunch of different plug-ins to build my drum parts. I'll use a kick from Sonic Academy's kick synth, I'll use a hat from Rob Papen's punch and I'll use some of ultrabeat's samples as well for instance.


It would be wonderful for me if there was a way so that I could assign these different elements that I am using to single keys on my keyboard so that I could play all the plug-ins at the same time as if it were a complete kit on my keyboard.


I would like to take the kick from Sonic Academy and throw it on C1.


Throw the Papen hats on F#1, G#1 & A#1 respectively


Throw a couple ultrabeat snares on D1 & E1 respectively


I might be getting in over my head here but maybe it is easy enough for someone to explain to a noob

I suppose that I should also add that I like to be able to process all of the various instruments differently and be able to keep tweaking them. Bouncing out the samples from each different instrument and putting them in a sampler would not be ideal for me!
