    Hi All,
    I did a search for the subject I'm about to ask but no go. So here is my question: I plan on buying a electronic drum set that has MIDI outs and I would like to record the drums to MIDI so that later I can run the MIDI file with Drum kit from hell superior. Is there any program that will record your playing and save it as a MIDI file? Thanks

    Too many to list.

    Any DAW program capable of sequencing MIDI messages from your interface would be "acceptable."

    I think that is not a great idea :shock:
    Pro Tools doesn't have a Drum Map switch (so you will have to change some function in your tone generator) nor a drum editor (so you will be forced to use the piano roll view to modify notes...), and only Sonar 6 doesn't need a bridge to use VST.
    Go buy Cubase, it has Drum Map switch, Drum Editor and fully support any kind of VST (since Steinberg created them...).
    Last but not least: software drumkits are boring, why didn't you create your own patches? Drumkit From Hell have, indeed, excellent cymbals.
