Superior Drummer 2 and Pro tools track routing - Help!

    For the life of me I cannot get my output tracks from SD2 onto individual instrument audio tracks in PT LE 7.4. I have a midi track with note info routed to SD2 on an audio track, which I can monitor. Problem is, I am trying to route each instrument, eg. bass drum, snare, etc to a separate track and it is not working.

    First, when I go to monitor SD with an additional PT audio or aux track, I can see an input under plugins for "superior drummer multi out - superior drum monitor -- insert A" and then and arrow and a drop down with "S2 to S16". Ok, good so far, except the bass drums are on S1 -- output 1 in SD. Whatever track I select, S2, S3, etc, no matter if I have an instrument assigned to that output in SD, it doesn't register in the PT track on which it is selected.

    I am sure I am doing something very basic incorrectly, but I have read the entire SD manual (and a good bit of the PT manual), and I just don't see it.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    First off, use an instrument track to simplify things. When you initialize SD it should give you the option to output to multi-mono.

    Hey, thanks for the advice. I figured it out, but I have no idea what I was doing wrong initially. I had sent the drums to channel outs in SD, and created audio and aux tracks to monitor in pro tools, and found the channels in the input buses on the monitor tracks. But no sound. Well, now there is sound. Why? I dunno.

    If you were too hasty, it may have been that you just didn't wait long enough for SD to load. It takes time for those samples to get loaded into memory.

    If you look on the dialog box for Superior Drummer there should be a button labelled CH. That would be the channel button, it would need to be clicked and have channels assigned. . At least thats how it works as a VSTI in most other daws.
