I am trying out different drummers on JS4. Each has it's own thing going on so I use them with any song I’m composing. When I’m happy with what I have I copy and paste into AD2. then find the right sound with a kit that sounds best for the song. After that I go back back to JS4 to get the right kit sound from it.
I either use both tracks or a little of each to complete an arrangement
What do you guys do?
May want to try driving AD2 directly from JS4.
Add both synths to a project
Enable MIDI Output in VST2 drop down above the JS4 UI - red box in the image below
Set the MIDI input for AD2 to JS4
In the JS4 UI
load the kit "MIDI Out Template" under "@ Special Kits" - 1 in image below
load "Addictive Drums 2" - 2 in image below
Remove unneeded kit pieces (optional)
Enable input echo for both synths
