How to export midi drums correctly

General tips

You should try to have your drums on a single track and if you can merge all events/regions to a single event/region. Solo the drum track if you don't have an extra option to only export the selected track/event/region. If you have an option like "Use MIDI file type format 0" when exporting your midi file from your program enable it! If you can't hear parts or all your drums after re-importing please check your drum library if it is receiving on all midi channels (omni), also see the FAQ about omni channel in Kontakt.
