ezdrummer multiple channels

Post by tonyd927 » Sun Mar 08, 2015 8:32 pm

Hey all, having some issues with ezDrummer in Ableton Live 9 Standard.
I am trying to record midi data on four separate tracks (one for kick, snare, toms and hihats) so I can EQ and mix them independently from another.
However when I add multiple EZ Drummer tracks, Only 2 will play at the same time and I get no output from the snare or tom tracks?
I know I need to route the input/outputs for this but I cant figure out how to do it in ableton
Any suggestions on how to get this working

Ok, I'll bite.

First, there is absolutely no need to record different parts on different channels. Midi is just a communication method, it has nothing to do with sound.

Second, to have alternative outputs in live, you set up additional audio channels. It's a little tedious for the first time but the good news is you can group all of that together and then save that group to a location of your choice so that it's all done the next time :)

One other thing to keep in mind is that you'll need to go into EZdrummer (1 or 2 ) and set the outputs to multichannel. You can do this by right clicking.
