We get a few requests about how to set up multiple outs in Pro Tools 12 using Addictive Drums 2. So we thought that we could create this quick guide which we hope will be useful to those of you who are thinking of doing this.
On a new Session create a stereo Instrument Track in PT12. Next add AD2 to that channel as a multichannel plugin. Then in the Kit Page of AD2 you will need to enable separate outputs for the kit pieces you want to send audio from separately. Click on the small downward pointing arrows and select the separate output routing you want.
Next create the same number of Audio Tracks in PT12 as you have selected in AD2. So if you choose 5 kit pieces then you will need 5 Audio Tracks. Note that individual kit pieces will sit on a Mono track whereas OH, ROOM & BUS will sit on Stereo tracks. Assign the individual kit pieces as inputs to each track in the Mix View of PT12.
Check that everything is as it should be by switching on the TrackInput Monitor on each track and turning on Play in AD2. You should now see and hear the individual levels for each kit piece respond in PT12. You can go on to solo these or add effects as you would wish.
