Adding drums (etc) to my music? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If you need drums, get a drum machine and then record into Audacity or Kristal.

However, all synthesized drums sound, well... synthesized. I have a good friend and teacher who records a lot of solo stuff (just plugs his instruments into a Line 6 pod and then plugs the pod into his laptop's line-in jack). His setup for recording consists of a Takamine nylon-string acoustic, and Ibanez electric, a '72 fretless Fender Precision bass, and a really nice Casio keyboard. He uses the keyboard to also add drum tracks. His stuff is quite interesting, but the drums just sound fake.

Just ask a friend to play or learn to play yourself.

EDIT: Here's a link to some drum machines. The Boss ones sound the best (my friend has a Boss multi-track recorder that basically has a Dr. Beat built-in), but they're still electronic-sounding.

can some one please give me an understandable one, i tried fruity loops and it was so unbelievably hard i couldn't for the life of me figure out how to use it, i read tutorials and none of them seemed to follow the same version as mine.

I tried the first one you guys said and it doesn't even allow you to add drums, i need a recording software i can edit sounds onto!!

Fruity loops is probably the easiest in my opinion, audacity may be easier

then fruity loops is the easiest, maybe try reason, Ableton Live, or I think they have a fruity loops program for just that, but like I said it is going to sound like crap, get a friend who plays drums, or learn yourself. Maybe if you can get your hands on a mac and use garageband, that would be best, but it would still sound bad
