Does anyone know were I can download free software for creating drum loops?

My dad want's to do some multi track editing (have already downloaded software for that) with his guitar. I'm having trouble locating a suitable program which I need to create drum loops and stuff.

Sampling quality doesn't really matter since the drum loops will be replaced with the real thing at a later date my dad just need's something which he can play along to for timing and such

Any help is greatly appreciated
thanks -Jacob

Is quite good, they have a fully functional demo. Not sure if it's time limited etc.

most of those music programs are, or you cant save anything, really annoying, but thats what you get for a demo.....

If it's just a basic drum pattern generator you need, try SequBeat (or FrequBeat). It's a shareware download but if suitable, is quite cheap to register. It's a good little tool for on-the-fly songwriting, practicing etc. You can use the supplied kits or use samples of your own choosing.

You can find it here: http://www.neztech.com/products.htm

Fruityloops is a good product but is probably a bit too much for what you require by the sounds. It also tends to use quite a lot of resources.

Try searching for HammerHead Rhythm Station - it's free, small, and simple to use.

so you want to create drum loops? Why not download some loops, then stitch them together with something like Acid? (You can get both at http://www.acidplanet.com. AcidXPress is free. It's a full version, but lacks all but the essential features like remixer tool. But it'll record audio, save it and render it as .mp3)
