When I import a Midi track into Reaper how do I assign a Drum Kit to the Drum Track?
Anyone know of any decent FREE Drum Plugins that will work?

Thanks Guys!!

I am getting really frustrated with all this stuff and not being able to figure it out for myself!!

2 ways to do this:

1. Just drop your drum VST into the FX loop for the track with the midi on it

2. Create a separate track for the VST, and use the routing button to route the midi from your original track to the VST

I prefer the second because it alows me to have multiple mid tracks talking to a single drum kit.

As for free drum synths - sorry, I can;t help, but don;t you have NI Komplete? If so, you can use Kontact or Battery as a drum plugin.

Thanks Andrew!
I was trying it as per explanation 1 but getting no sound. I was trying with one called DSK DrumZ AcoustiK.

I'm not sure how to do the 'Routing' thing!

No, I've not got Komplete.
I have Kontact and Kore, but not a glimmer of a clue how to use them!! smile.gif
I'm a bit 'All the Gear but no Idea' when it comes to all this stuff!!!
