How to create drum loops

I have recorded songs on garageband with guitar and vocals but i do not own a drumset or drum mics. Is there a program out there that i can create my own drums to add to my garageband tracks. These tracks are so plan without drums. Any advice would be helpful.thanks

yea i know. But there is not that great of a selection. I would like to create it myself if possible to get what i want the track to sound like.

There's software like Addictive Drums, EZdrummer and Superior Drummer 2.0. Not sure if they are available on Mac at all but they are really good on PC.

Garageband has MIDI drums. So you could just play them in, luckily with GB you can just use the keyboard you type on instead of needing a MIDI controller.

A bit more intuitive answer:

In GB, create a virtual instrument track and choose a nice drum instrument. Go to your piano roll and figure out what keys make what sounds. Open up your musical typing keyboard and record. Quantize afterwards to make sure you got it right (or adjust each note manually).

Happy "drumming"!

How do you remove the drum loop from a song?

I used Rhythm Rascal to create drum tracks for a song of mine, and they sound pretry good and realistic. The bad part is that you can't control each piece's volume and such, but it's still pretty good and simple. Give it a try.

Yeah I've used it. It's not bad for putting together bits of music.

it's good for beginner producers or people who don't need complex programs like Logic Pro.
