I like to use Beat Designer to create basic beats for song sections, then write them to a MIDI track for fills, stops, and miscellaneous random variation.
I’ve been unable to find a way to route the MIDI output of Beat Designer to a MIDI track other than literally sending it physically out of the computer then back in, which is ridiculous, but works. Is there a non-ridiculous way to do this? (Do they really expect Beat Designer to be used exclusively as an 80’s drum machine?)
Look at “Merge Midi in Loop.”
That’s it! Thanks for the help.
There are quite a few ways to do it. I personally like the drag and drop route. Down at the bottom of Beat Designer there are the “banks” that look like notes on a keyboard, which you can literally drag onto the project window, to a specific bar or measure. Theres also the drop down menu (top left of BD) that offers to fill the loop locators, as well as just insert the bank as a chunk.
You can also use the drop down menu in Beat Designer to insert the patterns onto the track.
