I recently purchased Stylus RMX and watched all of the tutorials, but I'm still not clear on something. I've noticed that when I drag and drop midi files from RMX into a midi track in DP, they play fine as long as I am in Groove mode. Unfortunately in slice mode, it will only play back one midi file at a time. As soon as I try to chain multiple midi files together to make a drum track, it won't play back properly if I am in Slice mode.
My problem is, that I need to be in slice mode in order to separate individual drums (i.e. kick, snare) for processing using the edit groups. Does anyone have any suggestions that would allow me to separate the individual hits, and allow me to also chain together different variations of loops to make an interesting drum track.
Thanks Eric-I found the Add/remove slice in group edit, to be very easy to use. But that parameter I can only use in slice mode. Is this correct? The way you are suggesting (in groove mode), I need to determine which beats the snare falls on (i.e 2 and 4), and select that parameter in the assign window of group edit. What would you suggest if say the snare is doing syncopated fills, etc. Should I just try selecting the assignment I think it is, and solo out that group edit to see which drums are heard using this assignment (i.e. every 1/4 note triplet etc.)?
Thanks Eric! Very helpful to know this. I thought you had to use one or the other mode and stay in that mode. I didn't realize I could make all of my assignments in Slice Mode and then switch to Groove mode to create my drum tracks.
