routing midi for more than one instrument track
I'm not a noob, but even as I write this I feel the answer is right in front of me...lurking...
I have two instrument tracks. One running Reason, the other Superior Drummer.
I have a MIDI keyboard and also a YamahaDTX 12-pad drum pad all running into a MIDIsport 2x2. Yamaha is on bank 'A' while the keyboard is on bank 'B' of the Midisport.
I set the MIDI out on each of the instrument tracks to their corresponding plugins. I then assigned the MIDI input to the respective banks on the MIDIsport. Superior drummer gets the Yamaha on bank A and Reason bank B and the keyboard.
Both instruments play at the same time despite my assigning the inputs/outputs to what I thought was correct and individual.
If I mute one or the other I can record just fine. But I want Reason to playback NOT muted so I can lay drums against it. As of now, if it was unmuted I'd hear my drum pad triggering the drums AND whatever Reason is running.
HOW DO I ROUTE THIS CORRECTLY?
I assume I need to do some digging inside Superior Drummer and Reason MIDI settings, but despite my best efforts, I still had to mute to record.
