Remap your MIDI Drums, Patch Changes & more

Frequently Asked Questions/Common Problems

?

Can I convert multiple MIDI files or whole folders at once?

Yes! "Batch Conversion" is available for users subscribed to MIDI Remap Pro or with our single usage codes (1 code for 1 batch conversion). If you for example have a bought MIDI Pack or your favorite vendor you simply need to create a zip file of the folder and upload it. Your converted download will be a zip file too, containing the same structure with all subdirectories as your original folder and all MIDI files will have "-midi-remap-com" appended to their filename.

Can I convert any drum library to any other?

Yes! We have presets waiting for you for the most popular drum libraries at the moment. If you find yourself with a drum library that is not available as a preset yet, or you have problems with e.g. customised drumsets you can always create yourself a custom mapping and save the config file (.json file) for later!

What if my "new" library does not have all the cymbals, toms ...?

MidiRemap is so awesome and smart enough to inform you about every drum element that is not available in your new library and will also make intelligent suggestions for most similar, comparable elements. For example if your old library had 5 Hi Hat Open articulations and your new library only has 3, MidiRemap will automatically map "Hi Hat Open 4" and "Hi Hat Open 5" to "Hi Hat Open 3" as this might be the most comparable sound. Same with missing Cymbals and so on: If you had 4 Crashes before and now you only have 2 available 3 and 4 will become "Crash 2" out of the box. You can always change the suggestions manually before converting. Awesome, isn't it?

Switch to another library with less Cymbals, Toms ...

?

Do I need to map all the drum elements/notes or only the ones I used in my midi file?

Only the once you used as only those exist in your midi file and therefore will be converted to new notes. Our presets simply list and map all the notes that are possible in the libraries as this is useful for batch conversion or if you simply don't know which cymbals, toms, ... you used!

How to use MidiRemap & the Getgood Drums Groove Player?

You may want to use your Toontrack Grooves or any other midi grooves you have inside your GGD library's Groove Player. The GGD Groove Player uses a different internal mapping then your actual library mapping settings. Therefore you simply need to use our Preset "GetGood Drums Groove Player/MIDI Pack Format" as target for your conversion!

?

Can I use my purchased Getgood Drums Groove Packs with another library?

Sure! The GGD Groove Player uses a different internal mapping then the actual mappings their sample libraries such as "Invasion" use. Therefore you simply need to use our Preset "GetGood Drums Groove Player/MIDI Pack Format" as source for your conversion and the library you are going for as target! Then choose your GGD midi files and convert that stuff!

?

I can't hear anything when playing the converted file? (Common problem with Getgood Drums/Kontakt)

Please make sure that your drum library is receiving on the correct midi channel. For example if you use a Getgood Drums library inside Kontakt please make sure you set the midi channel to "omni" as this will receive midi on all channels.
