What would I search?
I must admit I haven't looked for this info since L7. I kinda gave up on having one Drum Rack containing a kick and then a Audio tracks one where I send the Kick and one where I send the snare and so on....
I'd love to see this feature happen I just cant seem to find the right words to type into youtube.
Essentially a drum rack is exactly that, a series of grouped audio channels, with a different set of sends/returns. Using some clever routing of that send/return section you can achieve what you seek however.
For instance, maybe you have several kick channels that you want routed to one specific bus outside of the other drum racks. You can:
-Create a return labeled "KICK OUT" or something
-Set the send to 100% for relevant kick channels
-Mute the mixer output of those specific channels so they are being routed only through the KICK OUT send/return
-Assign "Audio Out" from the return to whatever channel you wish, anywhere in your set.
Being that you can have drum racks nested within themselves, and groups etc contained in the racks, I don't ever end up needing to go that far into it. But everyone uses their tools differently, so there you go -- a way to send audio out from within a drum rack (or any number of drum racks) to a specific bus.
The other thing you can do (and I do regularly):
Let say I want my hats affected by the same reverb return as the rest of the entire track, but not the BD. You can create a return in your drum rack and route that audio directly to a return in the master set, thus routing the specific audio in your drum rack directly to the master sets returns.
