Hello,

I'm trying to figure out a way to map each individual drum VST to my Akai LPD8 Laptop Pad Controller.
For example, I have four tracks in total; a kick drum, snare, melodic toms and floor toms. I want each VST track to be mapped to its own button on my Akai controller.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks so much for all your help!!

Rocket545, If I understand correctly, I am pretty certain you cannot send midi controller triggered drums to multiple tracks in MC6. If so, this is likely to change soon, in a new version.
In the meantime, you can "play in" your drums with the various samples triggered by your controller, into one track, then separate the MIDI into multiple tracks for editing/mixing if you wish. Its not as difficult as it sounds, and there are likely many other ways to do this from my way. There always is. 8)

Hi,

Which virtual instrument do you have selected in Mixcraft?

Have you looked at the manual for your Akai LPD8? It says that the notes the pads send are assignable in the software editor.

Most virtual instruments use the general MIDI drum map.

What are you getting right now when you use the pads?

Okay, thanks! I'll be sure to check that out!

@Greg
The buttons will just play a random snare, I believe.

For example, floor tom would be 41 or 43.
