Thank you Steve......Greatly.......I'm a newbie at digital recording, although my music is NOT newbie !!!! I learned a
new term; PIANO ROLLING.....My question was what " piece of hardware " ie, controller, that folks are using to trigger
drum sounds, individually....Steve, I also have Sonar (X-1 Producer), but I won't use it until I have a dedicated computer..
I have REAPER, but haven't used it yet...So, ECO has 'grooves', but they can't be layered upon as a stand alone product..
Thus, folks run ECO as a VST (?) or as a PLUGIN within REAPER, PRO TOOL, SONAR, etc etc, and from there, one, via
as an example, uses the 'piano roll' system to 'MIDI MAP' a drum pattern, which can contain an ECO GROOVE, and then
one can 'layer' individual drum sounds 'onto' it....(?)...And, within a HOST, one can use ECO to create whole song drum
patterns from scratch using ECO/BFD2......(?)...And, I appreciate your (and all) answers.....
I'm tired of just making 'demos.' I'm having knowledgeable engineers use tracks I record to make PRO recordings for and
with me, but, I'm on a small disability income, so, I want to do as much pre-work myself....Hence, to learn !!!!!!!!
