Addictive Drums & Mixcraft

Postby Brian S » Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:28 am

I'm hoping someone here can answer a fairly simple question from their own experience. I hope it's simple, it sure seems like it should be!

So I've built a virtual instrument track using some of my own loops and piped that to Addictive Drums within Mixcraft and on playback it sounds phenomenal. Exactly what I want.

What I want to do is "print" the drums to actual audio tracks instead of leaving them as midi + vsti. I see that the AD plug in automatically created a drum submix channel and various channels under it, but the meters on the sub channels are not showing any audio. The AD window mixer is fully functional.

Am I doing it wrong? How can I take what is on the AD interface and print it down to audio tracks in Mixcraft?

You can render to audio each drum and mic from the AD kit by doing the following:
1. Activate the "out" for each drum in the AD mixer
2. Solo the AD parent track in Mixcraft
3. Solo the child track you need and mix down
4. Continue doing the Solo and Mix down individually for each child track
5. Import all mixed down audio drum tracks into Mixcraft
6. ???
7. Profit! :lol:

Here's a pic of the Addictive drum mixer window with the outs shown:

Right now, there is no way in Mixcraft to automatically mix down child tracks of a virtual instrument track as separate tracks. In fact, it's that way in most DAWs. If you don't have it, here's the XLN Audio manual for separating outputs.
