Midi Drums to Separate Tracks

I'm using Studio Instruments Drums and I would like to put each instrument on a separate track like you would track a real drum kit.  Is there anyway to do that?  Right now if I have a snare that is a little too loud I have to go into the Piano Roll and reduce the velocity of each hit (I know there has to be a faster way than that too) , which is time consuming.  I'm pretty new to all this so bear with me if I ask a lot of follow up questions.

    I don't ever use SI Drums, so I had to go insert it and see what its behavior is.

    apparently it doesn't have the capability of using multiple outputs.  so the only way to do what you want with SI drums is to use a drum map and to map the outputs to separate tracks.  this will not be a simple task to do, but I've created a tutorial on this type of thing already.  check my MUSIC TOWN link in my signature and go to the TIPS AND TECHNIQUES or whatever it was we called it and look for the drum map tutorial.

    When you insert a synth, click one of the 'All Synth Audio Outputs' boxes in the insert menu.

    I tried that greg and for ALL STEREO it only puts out ONE output track, for ALL MONO it puts out 2 tracks, each mono but all routing is to BOTH outputs.  there's no way to route outputs to separate tracks from SI Drums without a drum map to my knowledge.

    pretty much as stated already , it only has a 2 main outs.

    I'd say get sd2 onward if you want seperate outs..

    but you could make 8 instances of it, and assign each track.. and save that as a template..

    Not having SID, I didn't know that. I expected it would act like other soft synths.
    Sorry for the detour, tomatoes.

    You can adjust the volume of the individual drums in the SI Drums GUI.
    That may be sufficient in this case.
    Lowering the velocity also softens the sound of the hit, which you may or may not want.
    If you want multiple outs,  the sd2(Session Drummer 2) that fog suggested is a decent, and inexpensive solution.

    Thanks everyone.  I figured as much as I couldn't find anthing that referenced output in SI drums.  I've heard EZ Drummer can do this.  I did not know Session Drummer could.  That seems like my best bet and only $10.

    EzDrummer has multiple outs and is a really good program, I use it more than my Studio Drums or sometimes I mix them up a bit on seperate tracks.. EzDrummer has expansion kits also such as Latin Percussion which I really like.. Its worth the money if you can afford to buy it.. Regards Karl

    Can you tell me how to do this in HS7?  I'm needing to do the same thing and I'm using EzDrummer.

    Hi

    First you need to make sure you have downloaded the SHS7 update which is available in this forum above this thread somewhere.

    Once you have done this you can create a multi out preset.. There is a video on Cakewalk website to show you how, they use there own drum kit Vsession drummer 3 but its the same as EzDrummer. Its about 3 videos long but it's better than me going through it here.. I'd just bore you to death!!.. It is dead simple if you follow the vid honest, good luck   KC
    Once you save it you can dial it up everytime no probs..
