I bought BFD3 a few years ago, had a go with it and then left it alone on my laptop. I am a simple drummer who is completely new to this electronic music thing, so please remember that. Not being a 'Techie', I find the manual totally bewildering - it seems to tell me how good the package is and how it is an improvement on the old version. Typical bloke, I just want to dive in and use the thing to write rhythms, but I can't seem to make head or tail of what is in the package. What I need is a Dummies Guide to BFD3! Can anyone please advise me on how to start writing a rhythm, or where to find the information - in a very basic form - on how to do so. My only experience of using programmes to write drum rhythms and tracks is with Sibelius, for which I used it to write the music and printed it for giving drum lessons, and a very old Yamaha drum machine.
Playing the pre-written Grooves, I can't move the window so I can see the patterns as the line moves over them. I can see the drum track at the bottom of the display, but I have no idea how to follow the line as it is passing over each part of the rhythm.
Also, a very basic question, if I open a groove and alter it, then save it, does that lose that pre-written groove, or is that fixed?
I'm sure many of you will laugh at my ignorance, but some real help would be greatly appreciated, otherwise the package is going to just sit on my laptop dong nothing!
Thanks in anticitpation of your help.
