Part VI: Hidden Magic >  Using Drum Maps and the Drum Grid

Chapter 23. Using Drum Maps and the Drum Grid

Face it, drums are just different than most instruments. (Drummers are different, too, but that's another book!) Most drum sounds don't have pitches in the usual sense, and the duration of their tones is usually short and/or fixed. As a result, synthesizers deal with drums differently, and so does SONAR. Two tools—Drum Maps and the Drum Grid—let you manage MIDI drum information in ways uniquely suited to percussive instruments. In this chapter you will learn how to:

  • Assign a MIDI drum track to a Drum Map

  • View and customize the Drum Grid

  • Use the Drum Grid's editing tools

  • Customize a Drum Map
