Drum software

I just need a simple software package that can create drum lines to play my guitar with. Doesn't need to be super-studio quality or anything. I've been trying to find drum packages, but they're all directed toward serious production. Anything good just to improvise against, maybe with some pre-loaded drum lines?

Thanks



The Rev

You can find drum loop files that you can load into recording software pretty easily on google.

For ease of use I've used Acid Pro with some loops for that. Very easy to use.

yeah just pirate a DAW like FL5 and use the built in drum plugins

i wouldnt necessarily recommend Fl5 though because it has no input recording (or at least didnt in the version i had, maybe they added it) so you cant record your guitar parts playing along with drums.

most other DAWS have this option so if you want to record yourself get something else, if you just want drums Fl5 is good

I would think Acid would be an easier app for Rev to learn. Both are pretty simple to learn but Acid really is as basic as it gets for a beginner.



edit: that's if you're only interested in just using pre-made loops (which is probably all you'll need if you're just wanting some grooves to play guitar along with)


FL for making beats. Acid for loops. I think that's a fair assessment.

no reason to reject something because its too good for your purposes. there are enough tutorial videos for fl studio that it would impossible a determined person would fail to figure out how to make a drum loop.

obviously you can just pirate it

reason has a drum computer called redrum as one of its modules... another nice thing about reason is that you can use a module called Dr.Rex loop player to play various drum tracks that come free with it- there are literally hundreds of drum loops from techno to rap to rock to abstract hiphop - and you can adjust any of these to any tempo you want- i find that these various things give me all the drums i could ever need or want... if i need something really specific i make it with Redrum and if im just looking for something quick to sound good and be in the background i use Dr.Rex and find a nice loop that i like.

the cool thing about reason is that its really easy to use, and you can use it for something really simple like playing a basic drum loop at your chosen tempo - or you can use it for incredibly complex compositions... its nice because you can learn it "bit by bit", but still enjoy it even if you only know how to use one of the modules.



if you want more tips on it just ask, be glad to help u get started.

i thought he said he just wanted drum loops to play along with.

- as far as what i usually do with that, i use reason for all my synth and drum sounds and then combine those with my audio in stuff in acid pro.

i guess it depends on what he wanted. u can use it if you just want a drumline to play along with, (either acoustic or amped electric)

actually ive never tried it but waves (or anyone) do u know if there is a way to fuck with guitar sounds from a plugged in guitar if you have a usb audio interface. - i use a tascam us 100, and i could have sworn ive seen people using reason with one of these to do crazy real time synth stuff during shows... but i never actually tried it. if not with reason, then what program do these people use to do that? like a virtual amp, but being able to use the granular synthesizer with that would be pretty awesome.

I'm just playing an acoustic with the drum tracks on my computer speakers. Nothing fancy.

I'm still waiting for a computer guitar program to ask my computer drum program for a jam out... in the Matrix; without my consent!

Posting their Demo's and smiling together.

Steam pressed or Glued?

Drums are so 'cave man tech'; It wouldn't be a suprize.

Impress.
