I am in the process of starting a home studio. So far I have Adobe Audition, with an M-Audio Ultra interface, some mics,....etc. I am at a loss as to what to do for drums!! I am interested in the idea of the "EZ-drummer", but it is not tested with my host, and I think I want to actually PLAY my parts,....tap them out that is. I can play drums, and do not think it will be a problem for me at all. I just can't find an all-in-one unit that fits my budget, (@$200) and seems like it would do what I want. Ideally, the unit will allow me to play the groove, or parts of it,.....piece together those parts, and then let me then transfer that track to Adobe. Is there such an animal??? I was about to just grab an Alesis 16, but the sounds did not "wow" me too much when I demo'd it at GC. Then I thought I'd try the M-Audio Finger thing....trigger pads with the software, but my buddy who is helping thought it would be troublesome (the software that is). I looked at the Yamaha D-55 on line,....like that in design, but it seems kind of toy-ish, and I am not sure it can do what I need it to do. Anyone use one for recording? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I have already learned a ton from everyone's posts here.
