due to compatibility, I have to use
Logic Pro X when creating projects with my drummer. The workflow is that I record guitars first, arrange all my tracks, send him the project, he’ll play drums and edit the project accordingly, does some mixing, and sends it back.
However, I would like to switch to
Ardour for solo projects and/or even recording my guitar tracks (so that I record them in Ardour and only add the tracks to Logic when I need to send him specific things). One thing I really, really like about Logic, though, is the automatic drummer. I set the bpm, add a drum track, and am able to record my guitars (I really have issues with the regular metronome, so this works much better for me!).
Is there a way to add this feature to Ardour? Perhaps via some VST (or other kind of) plugin/instrument?
My regular workstation runs linux, and I have Ardour installed. I use a
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 to record on my Macbook, which I could use on the regular workstation instead as well. The only thing stopping me from doing this (yet) is that I really rely on Logic’s drummer as a beat when recording. (just to clearify, after recording, the drummer gets muted and after I sent the project to the (human!) drummer, he’ll add an actual drum track. So the automatic drums wouldn’t even have to be that great for me while recording! I just see them as a better alternative to a metronome).
Thank you in advance for your ideas
