        I usually use a keyboard (kick on C, snare D etc) in step record mode.

            If that works for you, then great!

              I use Battery 2 or Reason 4.

              I kinda want to upgrade to Battery (and Kontakt) 2, but like to give NI a bit of time for updates first.

                Thanks very much for all the responses...lots of useful information here. What I want to ask now is....what is/are the cost(s) of these programs?, and, more to the point, which one(s) are free?

                  EZDrummer in particular looks perfect for what I want to do. However, I am a little confused as to which is the latest version of the software. Can you all educate me a little more on this particular product, any and all expansions, and where I might get a good deal if/when I want to purchase it? Thanks in advance for all responses.

                  By the way, I am using SONAR....does this software integrate easily with it?....even a "crusty" old version of the software?,(2.2...*embarassed grin*)

                      Check out Addictive Drums. EZ Drummer isn't bad at all. I love it personally. Addictive Drums, to me, has more potential as a learning tool, an expandable and tweakable sound pallate. I've heard amazing stuff done with Addictive Drums on the Andy Sneap forums.

                        I'm currently using Battery 3, gives you a lot of freedom should you ever want to create your own samples and comes with a good deal of good sounds setups. I do all the drums on a piano roll, and since drums are all patterns anyway its mostly just cut and paste with a few changes here and there to make it sound more natural.

                          I was having trouble programming battery inside Sonar, anyone else?


                          You have to add Battery as a Soft Synth ( hit alt-f8 to bring up the control window). Click the drop down, go under Softh Synths and click Battery 3.

                          Then you route the Output of a midi track to the Battery track that should have been added to the main track view. To edit the Battery settings you bring up the Soft Synth Window again and Double click on the Battery track.

                          If you've done all that and still doesn't work, I'm not sure.

                            Sounds good....I will check this one out. By the way...never heard of Andy Sneap. Who is he?

                              I downloaded and tried out the Addictive Drums demo from XLN audio. It installed ok, and I could get the program up "visually" in my version of SONAR, but couldn't get any audio going I have the sinking feeling that it would/will be that way with any drum program I try to install with my ancient version of SONAR. Looks like I am going to have to upgrade SONAR, and I am not sure if my computer will have enough CPU power or RAM to handle the newer versions of this software package.
                              I could be looking at a complete DAW upgrade before I can even think about getting these cool drum programs up and running. Any of you guys out there have experience with upgrade paths and problems, and any possible solutions,(cost effective) to my problem?

                                Well, the new versions of Sonar (Sonar 6 and Sonar 7) come with virtual drum software and drums samples. So if you were to upgrade (legally) you would possibly not need to buy third party drum software.
