This is so frustrating. I am searching Google for hours and days trying to figure out the simplest thing. In the old days you had a drum machine, pressed a button and you had a groove.
Now let me explain what I don't want:
1 - I don't want to import an audio loop.
2 - I don't want to make a drum map.
3 - I don't want to play the drums myself.
Here is what I succeed doing:
I can open Kontact, see my Abbey Road Drums. I can play the notes with MIDI keys and even record them on a MIDI track, but this is where the problem is. If I press their 'groove button' they have a ton of premade grooves, but I cannot get them into the Cubase. They have lots of nice grooves and I just want to pick one and stick it in my Cubase. I can sketch out a song and then later come back and pick one of their fills and insert it in the right place. It's so simple what I want to do. I have reworded my Google search a thousand times and cannot find the answer. Can someone help a poor musician get started with his drum tracks? If you had a Youtube video that would be even better. I have seen thousands of them and nobody answers this most basic of basic questions.
