    Logic Software Instruments vs. External Programs
    A little background first: I have my own apartment band and I've been looking to get a small EP out in the GTA.

    I've had quite a bit of success using Logic Studio to record my acoustic/electric guitars and my vocals, but for some of my songs I've been looking for drum tracks. Thus, I tried to use Logic's software instrument capabilities to create basic beats by using my keyboard.... Not a chance, it turns out; it's almost impossible to stay on beat for an entire song.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for an external drum machine program that works well with Logic Studio?

    So now you know why professional drummers pull down the big bucks!

    You won't need a drum machine. Audio Quantize in Flex Time is your best friend for staying on beat in Logic.

    From the Apple website: "Audio Quantize lets you fix the timing of an entire performance in one step, aligning notes and beats to a musical grid. Want to match your bass line to the feel of your drums? You can transfer the rhythmic feel of one track to another by creating a Groove template from the source track and applying it as a grid."
