It is a ridiculously long time since I've been around here, so hi, and help!!
My age old problem when songwriting is how to create quick and easy drum tracks. Ideally, I'd like something physical so that I'm not having to twit around with tiny little squares and mouse clicks (it takes an age, my hands get sore and I do not have the patience/time). I'm wondering if a cheap drum machine would help me - I have no real clue about drums beyond the basic kick-snare-hi-hat rhythm - so this may be more of a hindrance than a speedy alternative.
Previously I have used EZ drummer with some success, but it still takes an age and there's lots of mouse work, so just wondering if there's a more suitable alternative.....in this modern world.
Any guidance greatly appreciated. Max budget £150 ish.
