I have seen a couple of posts (mostly from ash…) about using Reaper as the tool to use on a Mac for editing midi drum files.
I too use a Mac and am struggling to find an intuitive, easy to use midi editor to use for chopping up some midi files I have found/bought of complete songs, and making song section parts suitable for use in BB.
I have Logic Pro X which can save a selected part of a midi file from the editor but do I really have to use such a big monster for such a small task? I don’t really want to spend the next x months learning to use some huge DAW, the idea behind buying BB was as a backing tool for our guitar/vocal duo. I would much prefer to spend my time pricing my instrument.
So can anybody suggest a nice easy to use way with minimum learning curve, to load up a midi song file, tweak the drum patterns and chop up/export the file sections so I can use them in BB Manager to create BB songs?
i have tried with Reaper. It seems pretty powerful but has a very quirky interface and try as I might I can’t find a way to export a selection of midi notes as a file.
I even tried Cubase, that won’t export a selection either. So if anybody can shed some light on how to chop up a midi song file and export in bits, please help.
As I said, I use a Mac but also have VMWare Fusion with a Windows 7 virtual machine on my Mac, so can use Windows at a push. But would prefer to stay on the Mac.
