I've been making a lot of hip hop songs with a couple of my friends, and to make beats I have these drum samples on my computer but it takes forever because I have to copy and paste each sample every single time it hits on a certain beat, and it would obviously be much easier and faster if I had a drum machine. So are there any affordable drum machines under like $200? I saw a MIDI controller by Akai called the LPD8 or something and it was only $99, but I was wondering if MIDI controllers come with drum samples already preloaded onto them, or if they strictly just control whatever software instruments you have.

Thanks for any help.

EDIT: Actually, that LPD8 is only $69.

I use DrumTrack, and import nice sounds into it. If you're good enough, you can make it sound pretty decent...and best of all, it's free.

Link? All I found from a quick google search was drumtracks.com which are, again, digital samples.

EDIT: Can't use it, I have a Mac.
