Hey,


I'm looking for some programs to make backing tracks the way the instructors do here. Any softwares, suggestions help will be much apreciated. If you recomend a program that makes drums please tell me how you would make it with that particular program, like with a keyboard or what not.



Thanks!

well, what the most use is a recording program with midi like Nuendo, Cubase, Sonar... and just write a midi drum line. then you add a Vst instrument like, EZDRUMMER or edirol hiper cambas, and assing the out of the midi line to assigned vst.
that´s all.
I can help you, just tell me which programs you can get.

With EZdrummer you have some loops ready to go, just drag and drop to the project. I don't do it that way, I usually draw notes (midi events) my self and assign some drum sounds from a plugin like Bandstand or Hypersonic. If you have keyboard you can record midi events with it instead of drawing it manualy with the mouse.

Yes, EZ or Addictive drums (my favorite),drag & drop system ! For bass line you should try Virtual bassist or Liquid Bass, both with some loops ready for instant demo . Now, for a seriously recording you must heat a seat smile.gif which means -draw manually or play each note on keyboard..

I use Ezdrummer and sometimes Addictive drums..They are VSTs.You need to make a midi track in your recording software (Reaper is free one) and assign it to be played through one of these two VST drums.Alternatively you can drag and drop premade drum grooves from EZdrummers or Addictive drums library directly into a midi track..

Good thing is that you can try these software for free...

Reaper recording software free - http://www.reaper.fm/download.php

Addictive drums demo version - http://www.xlnaudio.com/?page=downloads&am...age=demoversion

Hope this helps!

I do recommend that you also get a midi controller.
It will be easier to write your drum patterns and other instruments as well.
You can also go the cheaper route and use soundfont vst.
A soundfont is a sample format that offers tons of free samples.
Just type in "free soundfont vst" in google and you will get lost of results.
I use soundfonts often too.

thanks for the reply, I have cubase and some other softwares that open VST plug ins.

So should I buy EZdrummer?

Is it easy to use without a keyboard?

Thanks!

I've never used a keyboard for drums. To me that doesnt make any sense at all.
I plot every beat/note manually with the mouse.
But this varies from person to person, some like playing the beats on the keyboard first.
Midikeyboards can be relly cheap though. Behringer has some models for around 40-50£.

Yeah , Ezdrummer is a safe and high quality option...Its easy to use because it has tons of library grooves included, and once you get into it you will learn how to input your own grooves in midi via mouse...You don't need keyboard for that...

My vote for EZ Drummer - it's a safe bet. It comes with premade grooves so you can drag&drop them on the MIDI track with no need to draw anything. You can always modify those grooves, make your own ones or import external MIDI files if you want.
