Drum software

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Aug 13, 2005.


  1. yeah, its not really bass related :bag: , but im looking for decent drum software, any recomendations?

    preferably "natural" sounding, so it goes well with the rest of the recording, bass and guitar is going to be recorded through a mixer into the line in (seperatly on seperate tracks of the recording software i use atm, NTrack)

    i just want to show our drummer how useful he really is :spit:

    I've got Fruity, been using it for years, and it will do a decent drum track.

    However, I've just discovered a new kid on the block, Beatcraft, which I think will do a better job creating drum tracks than Fruity.

    There's a free (well, you have to buy the mag) no-nag unlimited-use demo of fxpansion's BFD drum software in this month's issue of Computer Music. Definitely worth checking out.

    i tried the last one... the hammerhead..
    and yeah it's free but it's not the good tempo when you try to insert something and play it with other midi files...
    you have to find the tempo.. the good one and that's not a good thing... in my opinion
     
  7. I suggest you look into leafDrums and find some quality samples on the internet. Its what I did, and my drums sound wonderful.

    Is there any software than has a selection of pre-recorded beats that I can just select which one I want and jam along with it on my bass?

    I have three letters for you B F D

    you need to run it as a virtual instrument in another program such as Cubase, Logic Audio etc.. but it sounds HUGE!!!! it also comes with heaps of pre cooked grooves..

    I use it instead of real drums in some of my studio stuff and its seriously KILLS anything else I've heard..

    Free jam mode creates new rhythms from scratch while you play. Or manually create drum tracks using key-words and preset rhythms. Or mix the two.

    Download the demo and try it. The support is great.
