[Doggiebox] Exporting Individual Sounds

I know Ben has it somewhere on his 'to-do' list, but I too had always 
thought of DB as a quick drum programming tool. Even, so with panning and 
volume for individual instruments, plus the variants available, that's a 
huge amount of control for a 'quick demo' app! Listen to Mike's songs and 
David's test piece to confirm that.

The main use for export of individual instruments, as I see it, is for 
separate FX: for example, adding extra punch to the kick, without adding 
boom to the snare. Again, we are not in 'quick demo' country.

If I want to do that level of processing, I am quite happy to do a 
workround. Mine is to write the whole drum part, create as many new Songs as 
there are Instrument groups that I foresee processing separately, Copy and 
Paste the whole Song to each, then Delete appropriately, ending up with a 
Kick Song, a Snare Song, a Cymbal Song, a Hat Song, etc. and export the 
separate Audio files to my DAW. It's only the Copying and Deleting that are 
extra. (End of teaching to suck eggs time.)
