Hi Guys,

How do I add drums into Audacity 1.3 and also which programs are the best for making them? I have a program at the minute but cannot remember the name.......someone told me EZDrummer and the From Hell kit or something?

Thanks Guys,

Don't think you can directly Iain - Audacity is for editing music files rather than mixing/recording and as such it hasn't a facility for opening and using virtual instruments. About the only way would be to render the drum file to a wav/mp3 audio file and then import it to use in Audacity.

You need a programm that acts as a 'host programm'. eg reaper (freeware)
In Reaper you can load different VST programm like ezdrummer(Drumkit from Hell is the expansion) or Addictive Drums, both are great.
As Tony said, audiacity is just an audio editor. You can only import a drumtrack when you already have it.
You can start by using Rhythm Rascal. Its an easy to use drum machine.
Or wait till I have finished my tutorial about creating backing tracks cool.gif

I recommend Addictive Drums and EZdrummer but they are VST and you need a recording software with VST support like Reaper , Cubase etc...
