I'm trying to figure out how to build tracks of midi using SSD so I can mix each drum sound independently, but I'm not hearing any of the effects that I'm tossing onto the individual midi tracks themselves. The effects are only coming through if I toss them onto the "source" track that has SSD on it. I have no fucking clue what the issue is, or how to fix it.
Anybody else have this issue?
Have you set the SSD VST to multiout in Reaper? FX dialog box --> options --> build multichannel routing. That should create an output for each mic in SSD.
You don't need separate MIDI tracks for each drum, either. You can do it all in one piano roll still.
