I don't have a midi controller...can I use the keyboard on my laptop to make the tracks?
I use an older version of Reaper and and older version of DrumCore. A quick search for midi drum patterns on the net yielded a free download of 200 different drum patterns of different styles( conveniently labeled fills, chorus,etc.......... ).
In Reaper I open Drumcore, import a midi file. I can open a Midi editor in Reaper and change what I want. Works great. I will use this a base track then turn them off and record real drums over top.

I find it a good way to start a new song. I can also use it to practice drums with.
