Problem - Changing plug-in preset on one track changes it for another (and vice-versa)

Recommended Posts

Hey there, 

I'm building a beat at the moment and I'm having a problem switching presets on a plug in called DrumPro 64. Basically, I have two seperate tracks using the same plug in, the problem is that when I select a different kit under Track2, it applies the change to the pattern I've already put down on Track1. I've only just started using this DAW so I presume it's something that I'm doing wrong. Does anybody know why I can't use the same plug-in on multiple tracks without affecting them all?

Thanks in advance.

There is only one instrument, so you can only have one kit. For different kits you need an instrument per track.

Logical, if you think about it. Bit unfair to expect one instrument to make different snare sounds at the same time. 😀

I'm not sure what you mean? The method that I'm trying to employ works in Logic (the DAW): one plug-in duplicated across two different tracks. On one track it is set to preset1 (to create one snare sound) and  on the other track it is set to preset8 (to create another snare sound).

However as I try the same method in Cakewalk the plug-in is present on both tracks but when I try switch presets on one track it applies changes to both. 

Would you be kind enough explain what you mean for a noob like me. It can't be that I am limited to altering the settings of a plug-in once per project, surely.

If you are saying you have 2 instances of Drum Pro loaded, one in each track, then make sure that they are using different MIDI channels. Maybe Logic does that for you automatically. Cakewalk won't.
