Default One drum track not playing back after recording

Hi guys, I just bought a novation launchkey 49 and I’m starting to learn how to build songs at home. I’ve recorded an intro to a song which included 2 drum tracks I made with MT Power Drums VST. One is bass drum and snare, one is a ride cymbal. It was all playing back nicely til I saved it and logged out of Reaper, when I reopened the project later, the drum track with just the ride cymbal sound on won’t play back. Any ideas as to why this is? And is there a way to gradually layer elements of a drum beat into one track by overdubbing so I don’t need a separate drum track for each component of the beat?

Hi. I am not an expert on drum VSTs by any means but here's one idea. Firstly the not playing problem. I think you have to click on the "nag" screen of MT Power Drums to get it to sound unless you have donated. Is that the issue?

Secondly I am not sure why you have separate tracks for bass and snare and ride.
To overdub and layer elements on none track simply choose RECORD/Overdub rather than RECORD/Replace via the button just to the left of the Track monitoring control. You could even engage looping if it helps you get "in the groove".

Make sure the monitor button on your track is enabled (the button that loops like a triangle,. Like a "play" button). Should be to the right of your fader in your mixer
