Can I use my computer keyboard as a controller for superior drummer instead of just dragging out loops in Cubase?


Or do I need a MIDI controller?


Thanks!

I use Reaper all the time for this. On your track load up your drum vsti up then set your midi input as a virtual keyboard and then select it (it may be in the view drop down menus) and there you go use your pc keyboard as ya drum kit! hope this helps.

I don't know how to do it in Sonar, TBH you'd be better of programming drum parts in the piano roll most of the time, since it gives you better access to setting velocity and whatnot. If you really want to program drums like that your best bet would be a pad controller, Korg makes a decent one for $50.

I use Sibelius. I transcribe the drums into notes, and export it as a midi file. Then I import the midi file into Pro Tools (or whatever), and choose the output to the Superior drummer track. Works like a charm, and it's 10 times easier than using a piano roll! I've used this method in the MP3 in my profile if you're curious.
