    I'm looking to do a small project with my friend (a metal project,)
    Nothing really big, just something in garageband with minimal work and time.
    I want to just do drum tracking myself, with EZDrummer.
    What midi software and hardware would I need to do this?
    Also, how would I go about using any of this hardware and software to track the drums?
    Right now I use the drum function of a guitar-pro like midi writing program.
    I'm guessing I'll need to use a midi keyboard or something like that?
    As far as that goes, could I use like a yamaha little crappy synth keyboard?

    Basically, to sum this up;
    1. What software would I need to track drums with Garageband and EZDrummer?
    2. Any hardware (midi keyboards or anything like that?
    3. How would I use these programs and hardware to track drums?

    Sorry for the long, overly complicated post, and thank you for any help! :)

    1. Garageband and EZDrummer.
    2. Anything ranging from your computer keyboard to a real digital drum-set.
    3. Set up a software drum track in Garageband, activate the keyboard input (shift-cmd-K).

    Up, up in my studio, studio
    EDIT: Never mind. The EZDrummer compatibility page does show GarageBand as a compatible host, albeit with some limitations.
