Default Cakewalk midi files/bundles

Hi Gang!

Could anyone please tell me if it's possible to use the above in Reaper?

Thanks

Don't know for sure. Just drop it on in and see. If it is a regular midi file it will open. If it has multiple channels reaper will let you select if you want all the channels on one track, or spread out over multiple tracks. You will have to supply the instrument vsti though, and likely find out what part, or instrument, is on each track.

Forgive me if you already know everything that I just said.

Happy Holidays to ya!

Got the multiple tracks converted from a Cakewalk midi sequence. Thanks

I'll go and look for those now. Any suggestions for a good kit sound that's already a part of reaper, or will I have to look elsewhere?

You said kit, so I assume this is at least partly midi for percussion. This opens up a small bag of worms. Any note can represent an element in a kit and there is no real standard for how this is done (well there are standards but many manufacturers have their own). Reaper has a sampler reasamplomatic5000, but no percussion samples (search the forum/Internet for some free percussion samples).

Thanks for the links Zapp: That Addictivve Drums is really interesting - Probably the best sounds I've heard so far. I'll put a post up asking for any experiences of them.

Thanks again.
