I'd like to make some percussive sounds with FM8, which I really love. I couldn't find where can I "fix" the pitch to a given value - in other synths I can switch off the "key follow" and set it to a pitch, say, C-1.
To reason behind that is I'd like to beef up the kick drum of drum VSTs with synth kick, so I route the drum MIDI to the FM8 track (no, I don't want to write and maintain a separate track for that!).
- Is it possible to fix the pitch of FM8, so any MIDI note would produce the same sound? OR
- Can I filter the MIDI values (in REAPER) of the kick of the rum VST track and transpose it to a certain note? (E.g. My kick is on C-5, so I filter out everything that is not C-5 and then automatically transpose it to my kick)
Therefore, I could totally control the root note of my kick, which would be really nice and handy.
