I want to be able to create and play a virtual drum set via my Midi Keyboard and at the same time record each drum sound to a seperate track making it possible to tweak them individually.

Did a lot of research, searches, read TFM, watched the video, but have not been able to accomplish what I need to do. Also did a little fooling around with the Racks themselves. However, I have really become impatient as I want to get on with my production while the creative juices are flowing.

drum racks automatically creates an individual channel for each drum hit, on which you can apply FX or whatever that therefore only apply to each given hit. click the black arrow at the top of the drum rack channel to open up the mixer panel for each and every drum hit contained within. as for the rest, you need Patience + the Manual :).

why, if you have Live, do you need a recording app like Soundforge? using Live you can "steal" anything you want. Like songs from Myspace music or any internet source that streams audio.
