Chapter 10. Editing MIDI > Dissolving One Part into Multiple Parts

Dissolving One Part into Multiple Parts

You can also use the Project window to break a MIDI part into multiple parts. This capability comes in handy in two situations. First, some MIDI files that play back more than one instrument sound have each instrument assigned to its own channel: channel 1 will play a piano sound, channel 2 will play a bass sound, and so on. In this case, it is easier to place a part for each instrument on its own track so you can assign sounds to each track individually and so the MIDI file will play back correctly. Second, when you're working with drum parts, it is often convenient to have each drum on its own track. Even if the tracks trigger the same instrument, it's great to have individual control over the volume and pan of the kick, snare, hi-hat, and other drums.

The following example shows how to dissolve a drumbeat (Figure 10.11) into multiple parts: one for each drum sound and with each part on its own track.
