Okay so to summarise my challenge, I’m trying to create a looped drum pattern in Cubase. I have Elements 7 which does not include Beat Designer so I can not create drum patterns in this regard. So far I have not been able to work out how to easily create drum patterns.
Previously in MIDI Key Editor I have recorded a pattern for four bars and then duplicated this by pressing the ALT key when highlighted and dragging this 4 bar pattern across however the pattern never aligns on the 1 count for the start of each 1st bar in the 4 bar sequence and thus it needs to be manually adjusted. Quanitizing doesn’t work either. I am wanting to do hip hop beats.
I can only see that I have to physically tap my keyboard for 3 mins to generate a drum pattern. I would like to make my own from either a VST (I have Battery 4).
I’m sure this is straight forward but I’m just learning the software (only had it for 4 days now).
