I'm a little embarrassed to ask this kind of "amateur" question here, but...
Since 1988 I've been enjoying my Roland D20 to play and use the sequencer to make some music.
A few years back I bought the Kronos X and despite the amazing sounds, I never had the time to learn it's capabilities.
For a user like me, it was disappointing that basic functions were so difficult to use, for sure because the huge potential it has.
I was wondering if someone could help me out finding a ladrary of drum patterns instead of creating it from scratch.
Thanks!

Hi there,

The Kronos already has hundreds of drum patterns built in, nearly 700 I think. So it may be that you don't need to find a library from elsewhere.

Check out this helpful video, that will explain how you audition and select patterns for whatever kit you choose - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7niy6vV6X0.
The camera work isn't perfect, but the tutorial itself is clear and good.

You can also sample in drum loops, and then tailor them to your needs, but that's a quite different approach, and maybe not one you want to go into yet if you're still getting to grips with the basics.

Personally, I make up my own rhythms and record them in. It's more immediate, and I can get exactly the rhythms that I want without scrolling through all the preset pattern possibilities. It all depends on what type of music you're wanting to make, though.

Hope this gets you started, anyway.
