I see it's easy to transform the MIDI events in DKD to different tracks, but they're all on one channel, so individual processing is not possible. I could open up new channels and Option-drag the MIDI into those but then I don't get the nuanced producer's track setups. Or am I missing something? Help! " Hi - I loaded up a DKD Producer Kit, created a MIDI part, and used the command "Separate by Note Pitch" (right-click on MIDI Region->MIDI->"Separate by Note Pitch") to break out the MIDI Region to separate Regions—the top screenshot (below) shows the result. I then changed the names of the new tracks for clarity (bottom screenshot). This should allow individual MIDI processing (Q, etc) on the separate drum/cymbal Regions (via the Region Inspector), which, as far as I understand, is what you're looking for. (In this setup the individual drum/cymbal regions don't need to be on different MIDI channels to be able to process the MIDI in each independently.) The audio is still routed to the Producer Kit's separate Auxes for individual drum/cymbal AUDIO processing (EQ, comp, etc). It makes for a lot of extra track lanes in the Arrange (Tracks) area—obviously necessary for the separate drum/cymbal Regions—but all those Overhead track lanes are just duplicates of the original, so they don't show separately in the Mixer. I seems to me that breaking out the individual drum/cymbal MIDI into separate Regions this should way accomplish what you're looking to do..
