Re: Reaktor Drum Machines in Logic

Ok, been using hardware for many years now...and used to use stuff like Fruity Loops and Reason when I did use software. I have used plug-in synths and samplers... however, I have never used a plug-in drum machine which has its own sequencer. I was wondering how those work. I mean, when you use a d...
