I need some advice on recording using drum machines/loops. I like to record demo tunes at home. These are nothing anything fancy - more just to capture ideas and try different arrangements. I record direct to my PC and usually multitrack 2 or 3 guitar parts, a bass part and I use a cheap old Casio keyboard for drums. However, I'm stuck with using only one drum "pattern" for a whole song. I'd like to record more than one drum pattern in a song ie different patterns for the verse, then the chorus etc. Would I be better getting some kinda drum machine? Can they be used to program a whole song with different sections for verse, chorus, middle 8 etc? If so, can somebody point me to some drum machines which might be capable of that. This is just for home playing so I dont want to spend a ton of money.
