I write drum tracks in Guitar Pro using standard General Midi note numbers (#35/#36 kick, #38/#40 snare, etc.), then use MIDI-Yoke (a virtual MIDI port) to redirect the notes to VSTHost (a tiny standalone VST host), where I can listen to the song before moving it to my DAW.

My problem is that the drum VST that I use has note mappings that differ from the standard GM mapping (say, my kickdrum is #40 and my snare is #55). I'm looking for a no-frills, intuitive MIDI VST that allows me to re-map the notes one by one, and save those maps.

    While this doesn't directly answer your question (as it's not a VST), you can use the MIDI transformation features in MIDI-OX to change the mappings of notes. It is saveable and gets the job done, although I personally think it's a bit awkward to work with.

  • +1 for MIDI-OX, but I quite like it.Most sequencers should be able to do this too. Logic Studio most certainly can.

  • Can't you export the midi from guitar pro and import it on the DAW?

  • @JohnnyBigoode I want to be able to do this in real-time. MIDI-OX is great, but too versatile for its own good - its difficulty of use really overwhelms its benefits.
