Working with MIDI + Audio tracks
I'm looking for a guide on how to work with Audio + MIDI tracks. Specifically I'm planning to use a Roland drumkit to input the drum tracks. It seems quite common for drums to be recorded as MIDI.
What I'm not clear about is how the audio and MIDI tracks are combined when producing the full mix.
Am I right in saying that Ardour itself can't export MIDI data in wav format? What's the normal process for building a full mix in wav format? Do I need to use a software drum application such as Hydrogen to export the drum tracks separately? Would these exported tracks need to be imported back into Ardour?
Any help or advice appreciated.
