I google'd around to find a way to replace a poor sounding snare track with samples, and fell upon KTDrumTrigger VST plugin. The behavior of this plugin is exactly what I am looking for:
- turn audio "hits" into midi notes, to be output into a midi channel (Battery 3, for example).
I can confirm that MIDI works on my setup (I use a MIDI keyboard all the time for drums and keyboard sounds, etc.).
I see lots of reports online that MIDI bus on Cubase 5 64-bit just does not support this kind of behavior, but 32-bit does. Is there a way to work this? Anyone have any success?
Here's a link to one of the articles.
