Simplest way to extract notes into separate tracks

Postby freightgod » Mon Feb 19, 2018 2:21 pm

I'm working with a 'midi' drum track, playing Standard Kit1. I'd like to just take all the kick drum sounds, meaning all the "low C" notes and copy them to a separate track for messing with. I probably want to do the same with all the 6 or 7 other notes being played in the original track. What's the simplest way to do this? It's weird doing it in Step view and It's hard to lasso all of one note in Piano view (on the details page).

Hi,

You can double-click on a piano key in the piano roll to select all the notes on that key, press Ctrl+X to cut them and then press Ctrl+V to paste them into a new clip.

In other threads on this subject people have talked about MIDI splitting utilities as well.

You can also duplicate the track and then delete all the notes (drums) you don't want. So if there are 6 different instruments, make 6 copies and delete the instruments out you don't want. Put the tracks in a submix and have fun. You can easily delete an entire drum instrument in a track doing what Greg suggests then right click and delete. :D

Good afternoon.

Sounds like this thread needs to be included with the suggestions thread! A drum track splitter upper, what a great idea!

Its actually quite easy as it is.......
In the time it takes to clearly explain I could have done it for 3 or 4 projects I think!
Stay in tune, Mark
