Is there a way to play the trk pads with a midi keyboard instead of the notes? I use a sequencer where each track is a different drum sound.
Yes, you can MIDI map each track pad to any MIDI note.
With midi learn?
I’ve had a play with this and it works great apart from sometimes it’s recording chords. Is there a way to only allow one hit to be recorded? Chords aren’t particularly useful when playing drums on a midi keyboard
Hmmm, that is unless playing mono drums or one drum sound at a time....
When I play drums on a keyboard I use both hands and can hit multiple drum-sounds at once (ie. they will look like 'chords').
I’m using the klevgrand sequencer from patchstorage that has one drum per Drambo track. So yes, I want to play multiple drums at the same time of course, but I don’t want a chord to be recorded on just the kick track, otherwise that’s just more than one kick at the same time.
This is however what’s happening if I midi learn the midi keyboard notes to the trk keyboard in drambo as @rs2000 suggests. I reckon it’s because it’s sending the note to the active track, and the trk hit and recording both, but I don’t know a way round it.
That's a very good point!
My guess is that you'll have to disable MIDI input on the drum tracks if you already trigger them by MIDI-learned notes.
As a workaround, you could try using different MIDI channels on chord tracks and drum tracks. MIDI keyboards usually offer quick ways of changing the MIDI send channel and this should give you the best of both worlds: Playing and recording drums without false chord recording but also recording chords as usual on instrument tracks. Then save that as a project template in Drambo.
Another workaround is to restrict each drum track's MIDI input to one specific note in the track settings menu.
@giku should have a look at this scenario. A dedicated drum mode (maybe in the black burger menu left from the pad/kbd area) could make sense so you don't have to disable all track MIDI inputs.
Thanks for the suggestions man. There’s so much I don’t know about Drambo. Will have a tinker.
