I do alot of music writing apart from my band, and i record what i write on my home computer. in terms of mixing and layering, i use adobe audition. when it comes to drums though, i have a bit of trouble creating a unique beat and pattern for each song, because i use a loop from a midi keyboard that just has standard fill-ins, beats etc.
Does anyone know of any good software for what i need? ive tried a program called PC drummer, but it doesnt have enough flexability, and not enough drum sounds.
Dont take life too seriously... you'll never get out alive :)
