    I created my drum track in Tuxguitar and saved it as a midi file. I can get DKFH to open and create empty tracks for each drum, but how to I make it so it plays what I programmed and put each drum onto its own track so I can begin mixing? :scratch:

    I've tried everything that i've found on the internet and nothing seems to work :(

    I use Guitar Pro, which might work a bit differently but all I did was export the drums only to midi, created a bare drum track in Reaper, and just dragged and dropped the midi file into the track. Hope this helps.

    I don't know Reaper, but you need to set the output of the MIDI file to DKFH. And the outputs of each drum in the DKFH mixer to each of the channels you created in Reaper.

    Start a new project in Reaper then insert a new track. Load DKFH on track you just made, then drag and drop your midi file onto the same track. DKFH should play your programmed drums, you can then get DKFH to create empty tracks for each drum so your able to mix it. (mulitout)

    This is how it works for me using SD2.0 should be similar for DKFH.

    And as a tip, if you are doing MIDI file in Guitar Pro, always use the number '38' for snare drum. '40' is rim shot in EZD.
