How To Convert Audio Drums To MIDI In Logic Pro X

In this modern day, the use of drum samples is becoming more 'acceptable' and a popular production technique for many drummers and audio engineers alike. Drum samples can be used to thicken/reinforce a good drum recording, or instead of a bad one.

A popular way of converting audio drums into samples is through a plug-in or tool such as the Slate Trigger 2 plug-in, however this isn't cheap. A free method is to convert the audio into a MIDI file in your DAW. This then enables you to then load a virtual instrument to the MIDI to act as a sampler.

This can be done in most DAW's, however today I'm going to show you how to do this in Logic Pro X. In Logic, this is super easy to do, and within a click of a few buttons, your drum audio is converted into a MIDI file by a transient detector.

Watch the short tutorial below to learn exactly how to convert your audio drum recordings into MIDI, to then use as a sample track.

Thank you for such a detailed guide! I'm new to this, but I really want to make great progress in this field. Basically, I'm learning all the video and audio programs right now. I'm reading more articles about TTA converter at the moment. Maybe you can recommend some sites that talk about audio processing and working with audio?

is there any way to do this with a drum track where all the drums are on the same track such as a track of someone beatboxing or a sub-mix of live drums?
