How to add drum beats to Audacity?

I'm a professional https://sikksounds… drum beat maker and I use Audacity to record my guitar compositions. I'd like to add drums to the mix for some very simple demos. I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. Other software packages (GarageBand, Pro Tools, etc.) might be better for this, but every time I look at something else, the notion of learning how to use it overwhelms me.

How To Make Midi Drums Sound Real

I've been challenged in the last 19 months to create music VERY fast for video projects.  I created a video showing the process I've been using to get better drums sounds using stock logic drum tones.  I prefer recording drums with a real drummer however this has been a fantastic challenge in its own right. 

P.S.  If it is annoying for me to post videos in the forum I have no problem removing them:)  These are the things in music that are exciting for me so I thought I would share it. 

Readying old songs for proper release: How does this sound?

Here's the first of two songs. I've remixed these and remastered them for release - I'm living with them for about a week or so before I pull the trigger. Any feedback would be awesome. One handicap is that my reference headphones I usually use to check how they sound in headphones have broken and I'm waiting parts to fix them. So far in my listening environment everything sounds pretty balanced with the vocals pretty upfront. Just need a few more pairs of ears on these. Thanks for your time guys. Any obvious issues?

Many thanks

How to connect cardioid condenser mic to laptop?

I have a MXL 770 Cardioid Condenser mic, and I want to hook it up to my Acer Aspire 5 to start recording music. Is there any extra steps I need to take? Do I need phantom power supplies? Would it be easier to get a usb mic? I'm as noob to this as it can get. I bought this laptop so I could start recording music and have really had no guidance so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I want to record both vocals and acoustic guitar with the microphone if possible.

How to choose a DIY microphone from microphone-parts.com (MicParts)

I've been ask a few times lately about what model would be the best to order from MicParts. So in this video I test 3 mics, the T47, T12 and S87

At 2 min, I made a mistake and mention the U87 but it's in fact the U47 ;)

How are people dealing with COVID-19?

My mastering and restoration business is way down and has been for the past 6 months. We are still getting in some mastering and some restoration work but nothing like it was last year at the same time. I keep reading that there is a lot of music being produced by people who are staying home but I don't see much of it coming through here. Just thought I would ask how others are doing?

Be safe and STAY HEALTHY!
