Midi Drums..Snare changing pitch

    So we laid down some drum tracks tonight.

    V-Kit--->M-Audio INterface--->Cubase 5

    I went back after the session and ran the tracks through EZ Drummer (I know- that's all I have at the moment) and I notice the pitch of the snare changes throughout the tune. It actually sounds like it has chorus on it.

    I'm at a loss and must figure out how to fix this. I cant hope to cover it up in the mix later because I want a nice consistent snare throughout the song.

    If it helps, he's doing a military type of roll on the snare during said parts. Any advice or trouble-shooting help would be great.

    Thank you!

    It could be that the velocity of the original snare track is variating enough to cause EZ Drummer to change the way the sample is triggered. Is there a setting that detects velocity? If so you might try making that less sensitive.

    Thanks Ripe...I found out what it is but I'm not sure what is causing it...

    I opened the drum editor and realized that every single strike on the entire kit is doubled. I actually went in and deleted all the double hits and obviously it's fine. Any ideas why this may have happened?
