Before I try to elaborate, keep in mind, you'll be recording you're drums to a single SI (Software Instrument) track, the same as you've probably already been doing. This method saves having to set up an ESX24 on multiple tracks. You are using only 1 EXS24, the difference is where you send the individual voices on the way out of the EXS24.
So, you first create a new SI track and insert your EXS24. There are 3 choices when opening the EXS24. You can open a Mono, Stereo or Multiple Output version. Choose The Multiple Output version. This will allow you to split the kit up and send individual voices to their own Aux channel strip from within the EXS24.
You then have to open up the EXS24 and select a drum kit (I used Rock Kit for example). Click on the EDIT button. Change the top left of the new window from 'Zones' to 'Group' and from there you need to set up your 'Routing' column so that you send the individual voices to where you want. Look for the voices you are interested in, they are coded so the kick is BD002... etc. I sent the Kick to 11, Snare to 12, Hats to 13, Toms to 3-4 (I grouped the 3 toms together, therefore a stereo track was needed for panning), Cymbals to 5-6 (again...stereo track) and just for good measure I put the Ride to 14.
Then save that setup with a different name (I called mine 'Rock Kit Split' so I can call that kit up any time for future projects.
Close the floating EXS24 window, record a few bars or whatever and select the region you've just recorded. Then choose Region > Split/demix > Demix by note pitch. Open the Mixer and you'll see a + at the bottom of the channel strip. Hit that a few times until you have an aux channel for each of the outputs you set up. Solo the Aux's and you should be ready to mix your drum sound with all the flexability of having recorded each part of the kit on a seperate track (well, pretty much anyway...)
So you're not really splitting the original drum track up. It's still a single SI track when you look at it from the arrange window. You're really just deep editing from inside the EXS24, which is done from the Mixer Window.
Hope that makes sense.
Many thanks to Rounik for sharing the knowledge. That's one mighty fine tool to have in the shed. Now all I need as a great library of drum sounds!!! (any suggestions???)
P.S. The only trouble I'm having is with the hats. I think the velocity settings in the editor needs tweaking as it's triggering the open hi-hat at weird times (my guess is it's the velocity settings anyway). If anyone has any suggestions I'm always happy to listen.
Anyway, to all out there in recording land... Best of luck with your masterpieces!
