Brilliant!
This whole concept of blending the 'classic' midi styles with the newer Supertrack midi styles is just a stroke of genius - makes you wonder why they didn't think of it before laugh

I use RealChart to work with midi, and I also generate drums in the midi that I forbid RealDrums for a while and split drums into more tracks so I might add, for example, the Bass Drum volume. The command Split Midi drums ... in RealBand is very good.
