    Hey up, I'm after some help in how/where I can get drum and simple percussion tracks from to use in either Cubase LE or Sony Acid pro 7. I'm recording some accoustic guitar and vocals but would like to add some simple beats without having to get a drum kit. I thought that both Cubase and Acid had drum loops or drum machine type things in them but I cant frigure them out for the life of me! :roll:

    Have you considered the manual to either of those? Seriously. LM4 is the drum vst for Cubase Very simple but you need to step edit or use a midi controller(keyboard or drum trigger. Either will do.)

    Acid Pro comes with at least one disc of fairly generic drum loops. There are also probably two other discs of other miscellaneous loops. Those are so simple to work with, you shouldn't need a manual. If you've taken the time to do the built in tutorial, it should be very simple.

    If that is yet too difficult for you, you can buy drum loops from many online shops.

    Some free loops here:

    If you google "free"+"drum loops" you should get a lot of hits. most of these loops are wav or mp3 format. You should be able to load the loop to a track or tracks. You can iece together a sequence by cutting and pasting loops to create a whole song. then record your guitar. I would just watch the tutorial as suggested.
