I run my band’s lights by copying a drum track to a “light” track (midi), mapped just a few of the drum notes to midi notes that are “sent” to the light program - which triggers lights/scenes when it sees those midi notes coming in. Works good, lights do their thing with the kick, snare etc.
Now I’d like to track my “horn” track, assign any/all the notes to trigger some flashes with the horn stabs in the light program. I applied a drum map to the horn track but I’m having some trouble understanding what the drum track “output” (one the drum map page) really does. Seems like it overrides the original send to my Halion horn patch when I was thinking the drum map output drop down would let me send the horns to an additional midi output (the light controller).
Its a bit of a stretch to use the drum map this way but it works for the light track. Can anyone clarify what that drop down box on the drum track page (get to it by selecting “edit drum track”) really does. Right now I either get horns or the lights. What I need is both. Don’t really want to create another midi track and copy the horns to that and then send that to the lights via the drum map. Seems like there should be a way to do it all on the same track.
