I want to record some ambient djent stuff. Do you know any tools for programming drum rythms (I would need also record with metrum like 5/4 or 7/8) ? Second thing is keyboard sound generator, i want something easy for chords programming. The tool could be for mac os and for windows as well.

You can do both of these things in FL Studio. There's a whole variety of plugins and stuff.

Heres an example :

The only program I used was FL Studio 8. There are tons of tutorials on Youtube, so just sit down when you have some time and check a few of them out and get experimenting !

Hydrogen drums should do nicely, it's free. Like any drum software it'll be easier if you have some basic understanding

Don't worry about the built-in sounds, you can just load it into a DAW and use a free VST library.

Reaper, Komplete Free, that Sennheiser drum pack Kyle posted and some other free VST synths should get you going...

i checked Hydrogen drums, but it seems it cannot do triolets. Do you know any other tool which can. I can also program drums in GuitarPro but I am not sure if there is possible to load good drum sample to GP.

Check again. I haven't used it in years, but I'm pretty sure it had triplets.
If you have good drum samples already, just use a DAW like Reaper to load them into sampler tracks, and program/import midi into there.

A drum programming software that can't do triplets? Yeah, I don't think so.

Hydrogen is pretty impressive once you get into it, maybe check out some tutorials or something. Hell, I'd even be happy to run your finished MIDI file through a nice drum library if all the VST stuff is a bit complicated for you.
