Logic Pro X Drummer - multi MIDI out [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

I've created a nice drum track using Logic's Drummer.. I have it set to Multi...


When I play the song,, The Drum track is still there with it's own unique 'drumming display..


I want to split the drums to individual tracks for drums, but leave in MIDI format.. So far all I've seen is ways to make multi track audio stems..


Can someone explain, or point me to a video to figure this out.. I found the 'split midi by note pitch command, but it was grayed out...

You need to convert the Drummer region into a regular midi region first.


Create a new instrument track (not a Drummer track) on which you load the same drum kit patch as your Drummer's.


Alt-Drag & drop (=copy) the region(s) on the Drummer track to this new track (it's always better to work with copies). Mute your original Drummer track and play the new track, simply to make sure there's no audible difference (there shouldn't be). You'll see that the newly copied regions on that Intsrument track appear as regular midi regions, with notes in them (not the "drumming" display you refer to, which only appears on all regions of Drummer track(s)). You can now deal with these as regular midi regions, including editing individual notes, demixing by note pitch, etc.


I hope this will help.

%5Bimg%5D[/img]Hello: I have been doing this technique starting with the "Drummer" tracks, and then copying them to a new track (with duplicate settings), muting the original tracks, then converting the new track to MIDI so I can manipulate the drums within the piano roll - and here's the problem:


For whatever reason, this is creating 2 layers of MIDI notes on the new track; I can actually click on one MIDI note, delete it, there remains the first MIDI note. I would care, except this is creating some odd phasing/artifacting which is unaccepable for a good recording. What am I doing wrong here?

I tried another techique that SEEMS to eliminate this issue, no clue why: I copied the first (drummer) track, and pasted the whole thing next to the same (#1) track; then I copied THAT copy into the duplicate track, converted it to MIDI and... I don't see to be hearing the same phasing weirdness as before. Weird huh?
