Strike module: how to record JUST the drum track from AUX out?
« on: September 19, 2018, 02:48:45 AM »
Hi.

Recording from MAINOUT I hear the drum track, PLUS whatever song I’m playing via AUX in.
I want to play the drums to a song, but my Mac only record the drums, no song.... possible?

Thanks.

use a small mixer (or a large one!) and only have the drum channel go back to the Mac

Hi Alan, could you link me to a suitable mixer! (and cheap)

Ideally Id like to change a module setting to allow the MAIN OUT to achieve the "drums only" sound Im looking for, if it can be done.

Hi Dino, this is something like what I got although it was on sale when I bought mine, around 50 CDN

You can get super simple ones cheaper:

These are from Long and McQuade, but you'll find them at most music or electronic stores.. I see stuff like this on Bestbuy as well.


Also, and I'm not sure about the Strike, but I was re-reading the DM10 manual.. I thought if you used the Main outs it sent everything and if you used the Aux outs it was module only.. likely wrong, and I haven't used output on my module in years, but I know there's a difference between the two output channels. And there was a setting in the DM10 that allowed you to specify whether the output was >Main or >Aux but I'm not techy enough to really know what all that does
