I thought this would be a good place to ask.

I'm starting to record again, and whilst Ezdrummer 2 and all the midi libraries are good, I have a great drummer friend in the UK with one of the decent Roland electronic drum kits.

He's not completely tech friendly, and can record me stereo drums as a WAV file, but I thought it might be good to also get the midi output so I can choose the drums from EZDrummer 2 and mix the drums separately.

Does anyone know if the Roland midi will match up or if the settings for electronic drum kits in EZdrummer will remap a midi file or if it just remaps incoming midi?

Thanks

You might have to remap, depending on his settings - midi in electronical sets is often programmable, so say note 35 and 36 which might usually be kick drum might be something else. It's not entirely difficult once you know what he is hitting. I notice some grooves off the internet plays the snare instead of the hi-hat with the set I have in Superior Drummer 3. It's not too difficult to change though - figure out the midi note of them both and change them around in EZ drummer. I'm not entirely familiar with that though, but I'm sure it's possible. At least it is in Superior Drummer.

Cool thanks

A little amending here and there won't be as time consuming as trying to create a human feeling drum track

Yeah, I'd say prepare yourself for that possibly being the case if you transfer to EZ Drummer smile.gif

Well said smile.gif The good news is that having a real drummer on your tracks can be an amazing thing.Once you get your first batch of midi from him you can find out what the mapping is, once you figure that out, it should be the same each time so just save the project file and replace the midi he sends you on the track that you've already mapped.

Another handy trick is stacking drum kits so if you have a second kit, another track with ez drummer, just load another kit. The drumkit from hell good and the METAL kit, etc. You can just duplicate the midi and apply it to the next drum kit. Stacking just the snare with a second sample can add depth.
Of course, you can take the midi and map it to a full set of tracks so that you can control/mix the drum kit as a real kit. It would take longer of course, end results can be better though. Mix takes longer as well since you have to mix an entire kit, eq each track, add fx to each track etc. it's a bit of a lost art doing an entire kit. may not be worth the effort, depending. Just another option smile.gif
