Gate control of one drum channel
 
Dear peeps,

Silly question probably but I'm trying to get to grips with CV and Gate and wiring things together and I can't quite figure out something. The docs don't seem to help me, so I turn to you.

Quite simply I want one drum channel to act as the Gate to, say, the Subtractor and all the other drum channels to play as they are. This will allow me to have an exotic bass drum for example, while all the other drums, cymbals etc are played as normal.

How do I wire it so I get the bass drum through the Subractor into the mixer, but all the other drum channels straight from Redrum into the mixer? The way I have it at the moment the bass acts as a gate trigger to the Subractor OK, but ALSO plays as normal with the other drum channels. Me no want that! I want the bass drum only through the Subtractor.

Many thanks

I've just come back to say "duh! I'm such a dumbass!" 'cos I figured that was it, and I saw your (very swift!) reply

Duh! I'm such a dumbass!

Thanks anyway Husker. It's amazing what you find out when you play and plug and rewire and fiddle and twiddle and try and see....

True. And what's so immensely cool about Reason is that, through all my attempts at wiring and chainging things together, I now have amazingly freaky effects going on simply with Redrum and Subractor which I'd never have discovered if I hadn't have played around.

I'm never going to sleep again at this rate.... :-/

You can just Select the Redrum channel, and then choose "Remove Sample" from the Edit menu.
