This article will explain how to route BATTERY cells to separate audio tracks in Logic.
In certain scenarios, you may wish to route your samples from BATTERY to separate tracks in your host software. This allows you to apply different send and insert effects or use your host's volume and panorama controls for each drum sound individually.
Select your version of BATTERY to view the instructions.
- Load BATTERY 4 as a Multi-Output plug-in in Logic. In this example, Multi-Output (16x16 Stereo) has been chosen.
- After loading a BATTERY Kit, select and right-click the Cell you wish to be sent to a separate audio output. A drop-down menu will appear.
- Scroll down to Output and choose Direct Out, to route the audio to an individual channel.
Note: By default, all Cells are routed to the Master channel (St 1/2).
- Load BATTERY 3 as a Multi-Output plug-in in Logic. In this example, Multi-Output (16x16 Stereo) has been chosen.
- After loading a BATTERY Kit, select a drum Cell, then click the Cell tab on the left side of the Edit pane.
- Open the Ch (Channel) menu in the lower right corner and choose the desired channel destination. In the example below, the Cell is routed to Channels 3/4.
Note: By default, all Cells are routed to the Master channel.
Note: In this example, BATTERY 4 is used. These instructions also apply to BATTERY 3.
- Open the Mixer view in Logic.
- Click the + icon at the bottom-right of the BATTERY instrument track to add Aux tracks.
In the respective Logic Aux track, the input of each Aux is automatically associated with a separate BATTERY output channel in ascending order.
Now the BATTERY Cell's audio will be routed through its assigned Aux track in Logic.
