Yes, I've done this myself quite often, though with sounds from hardware synths, where there was no other way, because I usually only have one "instance" of each ;) But, like I said above, several instances of the synth and a proper track routing gives you an equivalent workflow.

I don't see this as a problem. What's the difference to non-drum sounds?

then I can create loops out of these...
You can use MIDI loops, can you not?

usually a drum kit takes about 10 tracks, and a couple of buses ...

this is for kick, snare and hi hat (I'm still working on the tom-toms :P )

this is how the arranger looks like

I guess you understand my desire to sample the drum sounds generated by the synth :lol:

PS. this is not the FM project but something else I'm working on

Funky! :)

It looks to me, though, as if you're not using the synth for sound design, but the stack of effects your putting on each instrument. Which is a valid approach, but comes with the cost in resources...

Is that allowed by the rules? I was under the impression that we should work from the 15th to the 15th.
It is of course just short drum sample.. :)

The rules only say your entry should be created specifically for the competition, not when :)
