Default Drum Composing Software

Hi Guys, I have heard drums programmed in Pro Tools and they did sound incredible. But I'm looking to program percussion loops, turn them into mp3 etc to trigger from my laptop say through itunes and play along at Gigs.

Does anyone do something similar, and if so what software did you use. I figure this would be a cheaper option thatn buying say a Roland SPD pad or Alesis etc

Default Re: Drum Composing Software

For basic stuff, I like to use Fruity Loops, also known as FL Studio. http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com...ION?sku=703244Once you digest how it works, you can make some pretty complex complete songs if you wanted, but it works just fine for drum tracks. If you want some more realistic sounding sounds, go for Toontrack's EZDrummer plugin for FL Studio, Cubase, or any music program that can take VST plugins. http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com...ler?sku=703056 It sounds almost like the real thing. I'm not quite clear on what you are trying to do, but I use these programs to make drum tracks and I put them onto my Roland SPDS.

I'm just looking to put in some percussion parts of songs and have them played back live, say not playing it but something like Sympathy For The devil and playing along to that...
