For audio drums - what kind of control do you have?
When you say midi triggered - please explain - ie c# is a hat wav D is a snare wave etc or do you mean something’s else .
If I pick a factory sound with audio drums - can I revert to midi drums ? What if no midi drums were recorded underneath ?

I want to be able to control the volumes the individual drum parts - snare hihat kick etc - can that be done or can I only select other audio drums kits

For Audio Drums/Live Audio Drums, you have just EQ as you are working with a wave file. If you say want to boost the snare, you would have to use the EQ and boost the frequency range where the snare is most present.

Midi triggered: So when the audio is sliced into sections, you will have say a short section/part with KICK and a little high hat or snare and a litle snare ...etc since the wave file is truncated linearly (in time). Now say the original wave file was 30seconds long and once truncated, each segment is now 2 seconds long, then segment 1 will be triggered by say C#, segment 2 triggered by D, segment 3 triggered by xxxx up unitl segment N triggered by yyyy (where N=the last segment that was sliced from the initial audio). These are all created and managed by KETRON internally.

If you pic a FACTORY STYLE (not sound) with Live Audio Drums, you can only revert to MIDI drums IF Midi drum data was created with that style. So if the style (e.g most of the FACTORY SD9/AUDYA styles with the LIVE icon) was created exclusively with Live Audio Drums and you mute/remove these, the drum track will be empty and you will have only percussion (which is normally added via Midi to complement the Audio Live Drum or Live Drum.

To be able to control volume, reverb, pan ..etc of the individual drum parts, use styles that have ONLY MIDI Drums, then go into DRUM MIXER. If you start with a LIVE style, you won't be able to do this - unless you re-record a new Midi Drum Track for all the 18 style part (intro, ending, arranger A ...D, etc), or you can use LIVE MODELLING and 'import/borrow' Midi Drums from the Drum Library (which will work for Arranger A-D and Fills only).
