So basically i managed to get a bunch of recording software and plug-ins on my computer. so as a first project just to learn how to use these programs i have decided to record a cover of Iron Maiden - The Trooper.

i managed to get drums in a track using EZdrummer and Now I wanna know if i could use Guitar pro to export the bass as a Midi and then somehow import in SteinBerg Virtual Bassist, anyone have any clue if its possibel and/or how to do it? any other programs you could recommend as a virtual bass player or virtual drummer?

Btw i am using Sony Acid Pro to record everything, although i also have cubase and some other stuff. will it make a difference which one i use?

Yes, it is possible, I used to do it.

In GuitarPro click on File>Export>MIDI and save it somewhere. I'm not sure about Sony Acid Pro but in Cubase you just click on File>Import>MIDI and import it. Then you can delete any other tracks you don't need so you just have the Bass.

Then press F11 or go to Devices>VST Instruments and it should open up the VST Instruments window. Add the Virtual Bass plugin to it (same way you do with EZDrummer) then on your bass track set the output to Virtual Bass.

That's it!
Hope that helped.

PS, after that you can export the bass track with the Virtual Bass plugin as an audio track and import it to Acid Pro if you want. Make sure to export it as a .wav.

PPS, I also used Trilogy, it's a great bass plugin, it takes up about 3gigs of space those. I also tried Broomstick Bass but i didn't like it sinch it didn't go below a certain note.

For drums I use Superior Drummer 2 and it's kick ass. I used to use EZDrummer but I prefer Superior. BFD is ok aswell.

Are you talking about Steinberg Virtual Bass? If not then check to see if there are other MIDI notes you can use, because the ones you have are probably used for slaps and pulloffs and stuff.

If you send me the MIDI file I can do it for you if you like.

I don't know what's worse...a pirate, or someone who flames another when they themselves are probably guilty of the same thing.

I think I'm better than everybody else, so when I see someone that might be pirating, I belittle them and anyone who stands up for them.


Fixed.

I have no idea how VST's work, so I can't help you here. Maybe find a free plug-in on www.kvraudio.com that's easier maybe.

I picked up a DDR-880 Roland Drum Machine that has step bass recording along with step recording and some other variation of drum recording. If you can shell out $500, it sounds solid.

If you had looked at all six threads I've made, one was in R&R, and it was about buying a new computer ('cause I can pirate a computer, right )

And judging from this and your response in the other thread on Cubase, you're just an immature twat.

I do agree with PsychomanZ though, if you download software you should atleast take the time to learn how to use it. Even if you completely mess up atleast you learned something.
