Lesson 8. Advanced MIDI Editing > Demixing MIDI Regions

Demixing MIDI Regions

It is not unusual to record MIDI drum parts by triggering multiple sounds in a single pass, creating a single Region containing both instruments. This technique can benefit bass drum and snare parts, helping to create a part that locks into a groove. However, having the kick and snare in the same Region can make it more difficult to edit those parts independently, as any modifications done to the Region will be applied to both parts.

Because MIDI is a stream of commands with discrete events, it allows for some fancy editing functions. One such function is demixing, which enables you to divide a MIDI Region into separate components based on specific criteria. You can try this on the bass drum/rim shot part, splitting them into separate tracks for independent editing.
