I know I can create a continuous tone if I draw the midi note, but it will only work if I draw it every bar, or through the whole song. Is there a way to set a device so it's making a noise continually?

Thx for the help

Yes, Thor is good for this but,

Unless I'm totally missing something…
This is exactly what synths are great at, and your Pro Tools setup is basically building a small synth. Trigger the synth with the kick notes (copy the notes to a new track, for example), and you'll have a FAR more capable and versatile system than you could ever build with a continuous tone and a gate IMO. :-)
