My band hasn't spoken to each other or done anything in weeks, so I can safely assume it isn't a band anymore, or that I'm not in it. 6 months of trying to find an original band doing the music like has ended up in nothing but frustration. So F it, I was thinking about something on my own. I am an adequate user of Cubase, but that is just what came with my previous recording interface on an older computer, so I will probably have to adapt to a new DAW. I'm not worried about that. One concern is that I really am just a bass player. I'm not one of these guys that seem common to TB who played other instruments before taking up the bass. I can strum a few chords on a guitar. I lack any of the physical coordination to actually play a drum kit. Vocally, I can't carry a tune a bucket and hate the sound of my own voice. So that's a little to overcome. Then there is learning to use some king of drum machine\software. It seems like a digital drum machine device is a waste of time given how comprehensive something like EZ Drummer is. A software program seems like a better option. However, given that, as I stated, I don't know squat about drums, my question to people that use it is "will I be able to figure it out?" If I can't work out beats that I would need, is there an online library somewhere of beats made on these programs that people just put out there for general consumption? I tried using something called Beta Monkey years ago, but always had issues with the prerecorded tracks stretching in my DAW. Suggestions? Tips? Words of encouragement\discouragement?
