    Hey folks. Let me give you a brief setup and see if you can guide me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am heading to the recording studio within the next few months to lay down a new album. I have access to a set of Roland V-Drums. It would be WAY less expensive for me to record the V-Drum MID patterns in my own time and transport them to the studio for assigning samples to each pattern. Can this be done??

    The studio uses ProTools of course. I want to be able to record the MIDI info in the comfort of my own home, take it to the studio, dump it into ProTools there, and assign samples to each piece of the drumset in addition to being able to adjust all individual pieces of the set independently for final mix. If this is possible, what's the cheapest way to go about recording the patterns from the V-Drums into my laptop, saving them, and transporting the files to the studio? Thanks in advance!

    Repear is just about free and should work for DAW software to do this. Recording to a click will make slicing bars that you like easier.

    The procedure depends on what DAW software you are using, but you just want to record the V-Drums to a MIDI track, and export it as a .mid file.
