Appendix A: GarageBand MIDI Drum Sounds

Appendix A: GarageBand MIDI Drum Sounds

 

Table 2, below, shows the keys on your MIDI keyboard that map to drum sounds in the Rock Drums kit. In most cases, other acoustic drum kits are similar. The digital drum kits differ more significantly from this list, so you’ll have to experiment to find sounds you like.
