Choose genres and drummers
Each genre comes with a number of drummers who have their own drum kit and distinct playing style.
When you add a Drummer track to the project, a default genre and drummer is loaded, along with a default patch associated with the drummer. You can change the genre and the drummer, with these changes influencing all regions on the track. If you change a drummer, a new patch is loaded, which means that the drum kit as well as the kit mix is replaced with that of the new drummer. However, it’s possible to choose a new drummer without loading a new patch, without changing any region settings you have made on the track, or without changing the drum kit.
Note: Some drummers are only available after you download additional content.
