    I have the Spectrasonics Backbeat library which comes with the midi files for each audio drum loop. Is there any way to use these midi files with the NI Studio Drummer?
    The problem is that these midi files are not conventional GM midi files. They are
    like the Recycle midi files where the midi notes are sequenced like a scale.
    Can I convert this type of midi file to GM?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    It would be very time-consuming to do so. You would basically have to remap every slice to the GM standard. My guess is that because the Recycle files are chromatic, the kick would often be on the first slice, but snares could be on any number of slices, with any number of other hits occurring before and after, and therefore, it's going to take you more time to remap one MIDI file than just playing it yourself.
