Hi there,
I'm new to Studio One and would like to know, if there are any "automatic" drums available like in Garageband?
Thank you for your support.

Never used garageband but I remember organs and arranger keyboards with auto drums.

You should put what version of S1 you're using, there's a lot of ways to set up drums really quickly but not automatic that I know of, depending on what version you have.

Unless you get something like ezdrummer but even then it takes some configuration to get it going.

You should put your specs in your signature.

ezdrummer mentioned is a popular choice.

My choice is Addictive Drums 2.

Lots of MIDI drum loops available for any of them from the maker of the software and places like Groove Monkee for every genre.

You'll know you're an old rock-n-roller when the only spandex in your pants is in the elastic waistband. :D

I use both Logic and S1, so am well versed in both.

There is nothing exactly as integrated as Drummer for Logic (GarageBand). However, EZ Drummer is really good choice. I use that with S1 often. The thing I like most about EZD is (1) the ability to add custom midi grooves to it, (2) While you can customize a groove in Logic Drummer, I find the controls in EZD more flexibility and transparency (ie. can have a complex / loud HH but a constrained and soft Kick).

Thanks a lot, I will try out EZdrums.
I'm using S1 Artist, which came with my audio interface.

I don't know if you can use EZdrummer in Artist without paying for the VST option.

Check out:

https://www.presonus.com/products/Studi ... e-versions

It looks like you get impact, so set that up and artist comes with lots of midi loops, should be pretty easy to search through and find some drums you like.

Then you set up the program how you want to start a song, with drums and instruments and tracks and settings all like you want then save as a template then your drums will be there when you start a new song.

Strike 2 Virtual Drummer, that comes with the AIR instrument bundle, has many patterns and variations that you can trigger with keyswitches.

http://www.airmusictech.com/product/strike-2

I wouldn't buy the standalone Strike version due to the price ($129), but you can get the entire AIR bundle upgrade, including Strike, on sale for $75, https://www.pluginboutique.com/product/ ... E-UPGRADE-
after picking up another AIR instrument for $1 (or if you already own one, such as Xpand!2 or Hybrid), such as the current deal on Vacuum Pro https://www.pluginboutique.com/product/ ... acuum-Pro-

Sorry for the spam, but it is a good deal. And I think this drummer can do what you want.

I have strike but never tried it, using Superior 3. Does strike have midi grooves like Toontrack products?

It wouldn't work in OP's software without an upgrade.

I realize the VST limitation of Artist.

I do not have any Toontrack, but I have watched a few demo videos of EZDrummer, and I like how it can quickly assist you to assemble a drum part to fit your song. :thumbup:

But in response to a question about "automatic drumming", the Strike 2 drummer came immediately to mind. Strike 2 is more of a performance drummer, rather than a tool to assemble grooves in your tracks.

It has a number of included MIDI grooves and variations that you can play automatically from the keyboard, by pressing the associated pattern assignments and keyswitches assigned across the keyboard.

So it can be as simple as you just select a kit, and a style, and then start pressing keys. It then starts playing! You can latch the keys or not, plus you have total control of the kit dynamics, timing, feel, variations, groove, tuning, timbre, as well as a full mixer for the kit pieces. Intensity and complexity can be controlled via the pitch bend and mod wheel.

Looks interesting!

Have to try that, the first spare time I get.

I used to use mdrummer, haven't installed it lately.

It's a great robot drummer, does a lot of stuff on its own after you get it going.

It also has a free version that is good.
