Using individual volumes in midi drums & track stacks

    Hello all

    I have just joined the group, I use to use cubase but am new to Logic pro X, so far very pleased with it. I have problem which I hope someone may be able to help me with, I have learned to convert a drummer track to midi and split the midi track to individual parts by using separate by using separate by note pitch. The problem I have encountered is that I cannot alter the volume on individual drum parts, if I move one volume slider they all move together, this defeats the object of having separate track to mix the drums as I require, I wanted to put them in a track stack and be able to make individual volume adjustments, can any one help me please.

    Regards

    Tel.

    If you are using DrumKit Designer as your drum plug-in, try calling up the Producer Kit version of whichever drum kit you are using. This will give you separate aux tracks for individual processing of each kit piece.

    tel: if you have split the drum pitches to different tracks, then each track will be independently controllable.

    If they are all changing together, this can because they are all assigned to the same group, where the group settings checkbox for level is checked.

    Or they will change together if more than one channel strip is highlit.

    In either case, moving one fader will move all of them.

    Hi Peter - I don't think this will apply to his situation. He mentioned he used the "separate by note pitch" function. This will almost certainly have placed the separated data on duplicated tracks that are all pointing to the same underlying channel strip.

    Eli: You're probably right. Please remind me how this can be useful? I haven't used this feature for a while...

    I haven't used it in a while either. But it is useful for separating out your drum parts to individual regions so that you can edit the individual regions. Either with unique region parameters (velocity, quantization,delay, etc) or maybe some cut/copy/paste or mute/solo commands. But it's not designed to establish independent control over the individual elements in the mixer.
