I'm the idiot! I used to be really good and very quick at sequencing drum tracks on my old Atari STE using Creator/Notator software. I loved the simplicity of the vertical list of patterns on the song arrangement page and the whole process was so intuitive and easy to navigate. I find that trying to create drum tracks/arrangements in my DAW (Reaper) is so clunky and time consuming that after spending an hour or so trying to create a track I throw my hands in the air and walk away. Very frustrating as this stops me getting to the fun part....bass, guitars, vocals. I have Addictive Drums 2 Software and have tried copying patterns to Reaper and then editing/arranging but it is this part that I'm finding so clunky. I've also tried creating my own patterns playing in the beats with my midi keyboard/pads (which would be my preferred way of working) but again find the whole process confusing. Can anyone here point me in the direction of some good instructional videos or tips that will give me a quick and simple workflow?
