Routing Sound in Modern Drummer

I'm not sure if I routed this question so forgive me if it's in the wrong department.

I was wondering if it's possible to route separate sounds of the drumkit to different tracks? That way cymbals and certain toms can be adjusted left, some right some centered so that a drum track may be spread out. If you get what I mean. More control of where they're placed.

Thanks.

    Hmm...this is a silly question, but...do you use Kontakt?

    And btw, could you screenshot the output settings on your Modern Drummer instrument?

    Yes I use Kontact Player inside my studio one to load some of my vst's.

    I've been yet to find an output setting in Modern Drummer and since modern drummer has multiple settings I wouldn't know which one to screenshot Milo. Do you know specifically or are you just having a looking around?

    This is the screenshot I meant.

    Click on the View button which is here!

    Then, click the Outputs button and the outputs will literally appear!

    Click on the + button to make as many outputs as you need for each individual sound of your drums.

    However, you need to save the Modern Drummer preset first, then open it again.

    Then click Master button which is on the Modern Drummer instrument mixer and have fun putting each sound for each output.

    Let me know if you need more info.

    WHOAH!!

    My jaw is on the floor. That was the friggin' gold standard of answers Milo! Let me work on that tomorrow but I ...should...be good from here.

    WHOAH!

    And, how is it going with the Outputs feature, Adam Smasher?

    Are you satisfied, good sir?

    Sorry about the delay Milo. I had to put this on the back burner.

    But you're right .. lets finish this off.

    Ok so I did spend time playing with this and digging into it further. I see how everything is balanced in the mixer tab but how do I specifically route them now? I can create a new aux channel and see the channels have drop down menus but how do I send the signal from the mixer to the channel?

    @The Adam Smasher Oddly earlier I was watching random YouTube vids about drumming and studio one, and I think the one below shows you how to do exactly what you want.

    Yup that's it sir.

    That's the particular on getting every voice on separate tracks. I'll follow through so I know how to do it for practice.
