    Does anyone know a free or a cheaper alternative to Cubase? I've just been using guitar pro to export MIDI files then transfer it to FL studio and change it to DFH, and I wanted to try a different way besides that.

    I do it the same way using guitar pro, except after exporting I drag it into reaper and load EZdrummer/dfh. I haven't found a faster way to make good, non-generic drum parts for my tunes.

    I can't imagine how it is easier to program drums in GP and then exporting the midi, I literally draw them in Cubase and it takes me less time, especially cause I can reedit move/paste the parts that I change during the writing process.

    A good tip is also not to copy/past same parts on same riffs when they are repeated - re-edit them and add different accents - makes all the difference in the world :)

    Great tutorial. Much better doing it this way instead of my old standard, Modplug Tracker. Quick question though, how do you program shorter note values on the drum editor (i.e., 16th or 32nd notes)to create fast double kick lines?


    EDIT: Nevermind figured it out. Needed to change note values for each drumkit piece.

    65k views and a brother can even keep contributor status.

    For shame.

    Sorry man, the hosting I used for this thread expired years back. I can't edit posts anymore either, so I don't think I'll be able to revamp it.

    Le sigh.
