    Hey guys, I want to experiment adding some drums in my music, which program can i use to help me do this. I have noticed some people have been able to synthesize the drums of a song almost perfectly. I am envious and I want to learn how you do it. Please help! thanks!

    If you are a guitarist then i suggest for Fruity Loops.
    If you want to compose your own songs with everything, guitar, bas, drum synth etc., i then suggest to go for Cubase Sx3 or another sequencer of your own choice, you then will need a fast PC with at least 1G memory. In this case you will need alot of plugins, Vst-plugins called, these are software synth's and software effects. To download all this stuff, just search the many torrent sites, and for more information about how to do such, just try some google searching!!!

    I agree, Fruity Loops is good prog, but its certainly not the best, there are lots of better drumsynth's, in my opinion Native Instruments Battery 3 is one of the best, but this is a Vst-plugin.
    Fruity Loops is good when you want to make a beat in a few minutes as for the guitarplayers its a good choice to make a song quickly. And Fruity Loops can do alot more, but i think when you want to make some professional songs, you then have to use a more professional sequencer, just like Cubase Sx3!!!

    Here some links for Fruity Loops Tutorials(one request of an IGT-ian):

    well, if you want just basic sequencing capabilities and dont care about the drum tones so much, u can use cakewalk pro audio, by far the easiest drum seq tool, but you will get crappy MIDI drum tones.
    fruity loops is a good option of producing ok sounding drum seqs.
    battery 3 is great, but the best that you can get is ezdrummer drumkit from hell from toontrack. nothin like it.

    I also use EzDrummer and Stylus RMX, but i still think Battery 3 is the best, but its everyone's own choice about what they think that is the best and about what they use ofcourse!

    Thanks so much for the replies guys. I am going to look into some of this stuff. Quick question though, are EzDrummer, stylus rmx, and battery 3 programs or are they just tons of loops? I play guitar and sing so maybe fruity loops is the best bet for me. I am going to look into the tutorials and get some information out of that. Thanks guys! if you have any other advice, please post. I think a lot of people can benefit from this post.

    EzDrummer, Stylus RMX and Battery are VST-plugins, you have to use them in combination with a sequencer, just like Cubase SX 3.
    You just want to record your guitar and vocals, you then should go Fruity Loops, this is the easiest way to record you guitar with some rhythm!
