Hi all,

I'm a vs2000cd user and usually record acoustic instruments + e guitar/bass, but I have now bought a korg microArranger in order to help me compose song back grounds - I use auto chords as I don't play keyboards !

I want to either compose the song into the midi sequencer on the KMA or do this in Cakewalk sonar LE ver 4 [which came my midi-usb box]. Once this is done I pass the resulting backing track into the KMA and then record audio to my vs2000cd.

After connecting the KMA midi out to my midi-usb box and pressing record in cakewalk [after a day of figuring out how to get the midi channels onto separate tracks] I can now record midi drums, bass and backing tracks etc. Great.

Q: How can I extract/split the drum track instruments [eg bass drum, snare etc] onto separate midi tracks so that I can mix the drum instrument volume ?

Thanks.

update2

I figured out that if I :

# clone the drum track as many times as there are instruments
# delete all notes from each clone except the one indicated in the track name
# thus leaving me with the original muted drum track and 4 clones drum-hh, drum-snare etc

This works but I would love to know if there is either a method of recording the drums instruments to different tracks or to do the above edits in a 'automatic' or 'programmable way'

So anyone got any ideas for this midi / sonar newbee ?

Don't use MIDI much anymore, but I remember being able to copy all MIDI notes to a new track. For instance, if C1 is a kick drum, copy all C1 notes to a new MIDI track. If the snare is C2, copy all C2 notes to a new MIDI track, etc

Hey, after I posted the above, I found this concerning your Sonar LE version, I think it will help:

You might want to take a look at Cubase:

In addition to setting the output note for each row, via the O-Note parameter, you can also set the MIDI channel and device that each row should use to play the output note.

Sound-on-Sound: Cubase


Most software can be slaved to other software,
just depends on how much computing power you have.

select the midi track you want to split note..

then in sonar go to
process-run Cal-then select=Split Note to Tracks.cal

this will create a midi track per each midi note..

I struggled with this issue for a long time before I discovered Sonar 4 can do it easily using the "process" window. Martin has described it exactly.
