I want to use my recorded acustic drum tracks to trigger a drum module. How can I do this, and what is the best (inexpensive) drum module to use?
This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.
The first thing you will need to do is translate those acoustic tracks to midi. If they are seperate tracks (kick, snare etc on an audio track each) than you could look at drumagog, a plugin available for most sequencers. If you are in logic on a mac you con do a drum replace that will generate you midi notes that you can send via an audio interface to any drum module of your choice. As far as im aware most modern sequencers (cubase, pro tools etc) will have some form of drum replacement option that will translate those hits to midi.
