I'm pretty new to this recording stuff. I don't know anything about mixing or VST plugins or any of that.

My question is how do I get Guitar rig 3 to work on recording software? also, is there any program with a really good drum machine that'll let me place the notes where I want them instead of playing them manually (like guitar pro)?

Is there any recording software that has these qualities?

Sorry for all the questions. I've never bothered recording music until recently, and I'm getting pretty frustrated with every program I use. I'm pretty confused.
