I primarily use Cubase Elements 7 with EZdrummer 2 for various drum related tasks, so beyond that I’ve got no idea what I am doing…
I have tried searching the forum for a similar problem to this but couldn’t find any posts that would help.
I want to use cubase to trigger some orchestration loops when playing live. Gear wise, I’ve been using an alesis trigger io, cubase, EZdrummer 2 metal machine and some home made piezo triggers on a home made e-kit to record drums and it works well enough for that.
I also use this set up with my acoustic kit live to trigger my bass drum, but in addition to this I want to use the same set up to trigger orchestration samples etc…basically i want to be able to hit an e-kit pad or piezo trigger and have cubase play a piece of music instead of a drum sound, but still be able to trigger the bass drum too.
I have literally no idea how to do this but I’ve been told by several people that it is possible (although none will tell me how )
If I’m not making sense or I need to add more info please let me know, my knowledge of this subject is extremely limited. I am wondering if I need to use HALion or a different VST in addition to EZdrummer but I wouldnt know where to start
Thanks for your time
