Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Split a drum track into multiple tracks, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- [Instructor] All right, so previously I recorded…this drum track onto a single region…onto a single softer instrument track.…Now, one of the frustrations some people have…when recording softer instrument drums…is that all of the individual drum parts,…the kick, the snare, and the hi-hat in this case,…all end up together in this one region.…Now you do have some control over the levels…of the individual instruments by opening up…the Smart Controls panel here for the drum track,…and you can see that we have dials here to adjust…the levels of the kick, snare, tom, hi-hat symbols…and percussion instruments.…So this will allow you to mix the parts…in this single region.…
However, sometimes you might want more control than this.…For example, you might wanna use one drum kit's…snare sound and another drum kit's kick sound.…Or you may want to apply different effects…to just single drums instead of the whole kit.…So what we can do is split our softer drums…onto their own separate tracks.…It's a bit of a time consuming, manual procedure.…
