    I am new to recording, I am running Pro-Tools LE on my Mac Pro Quad. I am a songwriter mainly, I write with my guitar which I am limited on skills. I am looking for a good software program with pre-recorded drum beats, where I can pick and choose from for my original songs.

    I do not have the skills to use a keyboard and make up the drum beats. I have Reason 3.0 which I as disappointed in as far as theselection of pre recorded drum beats.

    Can anyone suggest a better program I can use with Pro Tools?

    You already have Garageband. It has a number of sampled and synth beats. You could build your drum track quickly in Garageband by dragging and dropping, then bring it into what ever software you are using (limited to 16 bit though). Seeing as you already have this program on your system it's a quick and easy way to throw around ideas.

    Or you could buy Logic Express for $200 and try that out.

    Check out Strike by Digi. I'm not sure the capabilities of Logic Express, but Strike allows you to tell the 'drummer' what to play, when to play it and how it's to be played.

    Pretty easy and fun. And if you want to stick within Pro Tools.
