Hello, Im into recreating cover songs and dont know alot about my keyboard (XS8) yet because its so intense. I’ve had it for many years but only used it a little. I have not used performance or master mode at all.
What I need to know.... is it possible : can I take an existing appegio drum sound and customize it to have different sounds and speeds? Basically manipulate it in many ways to create my own drum sound/speed/track to fit a song and then record it so I can then add music & vocals to it. I’m not a drummer so making it by hitting one note at a time is not something im ever going to do.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
