Hey everyone so i have ableton live 7 light version. im just learning all this software and ive created a very simple house/electronica song using loops and etc in ableton. The whole point of why im learning how to create loops and beats and etc is so i can get a semi realistic tone when i want drum backings for my song covers. im working on californication right now cuz i thought it would be easy but im not having much luck with it. any tips? or any songs that have simple drums on that would be possible for a beginner to "program". Also is there another program i should be using?? thx in advance.

ps: i have reason 3 to but i dont want to touch it cause i want to learn ableton live first. should i use redrum? oh and should i be using a midi controller for all this?

Nope. I'm far too honest.
well you should use the impulse plugin for drums, and get some good samples from somewhere online and drop them into impulse. a good midi controller for drums is the akai mpd18, it's $99 and I love mine!
