Free Virtual Drums or Best V-Drums w/ Trial Period
 
I really enjoy the musical typing feature in Garageband that allows you to play the virtual drums offered with the computer keyboard. It is especially helpful since i dont or nor can afford an actual keyboard. Is there something similar to this for PT, with a "musical typing" option? It's a real pain in the ass having to switch between PT and GB to add a drum track...not to mention it mucking up the mix. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

it's like this .., you get what you pay for ;)
In saying that , I don't know of ANY decent sample based instrument libraries that offer free trials , so therefore I recommend you just lash out and get yourself (ie; buy) ; toontrack EZDrummer2

There is a free drum VSTi named MT-PowerDrum that's pretty good. Do you have a VST to AAX loader? I use it on PC in a VST host, but it should work fine in PT with a loader.

Adam is asking for a virtual keyboard, not a drumsampler as far as I understood or a free VI with virtual keyboard. Does the MT have this?

Correct. in reposonse to the previous posts i'd love to buy a real keyboard and buy a pay plugin but i'm broke. I have a a free virtual drum machine; it a GUI that looks.like a keyboard...I think it's called VMK (or something close to that). I think it acts similar to Garageband's musical typing, but I haven't had the chance to play around with it enough. I'm not familair with VST/AAX loaders; iM running PT 12. The VI drum program doesnt have to be that complex, just enough to get the point across of a drum track/beat...i'm just making some demos. Thanks

Pro Tools used to come with a "lite" (i.e. limited to 8 tracks) version of Ableton Live, which still seems to be supported, and updated.

I'm not sure if it's still free, but have a look on the Ableton website (they may just have a 30 day demo, which wouldn't help you).

Anyway, you can use the computer's Alpha keyboard to play keyboards / drums etc in Ableton Live, which you could use for your drum tracks, and then "ReWire" Ableton Live into Pro Tools.

No. The subject of the thread is about best free V-drums, I assumed that would be what he was asking about.

The OP is actually asking for both a virtual keyboard AND a free drum program. I'll admit the way the post was phrased it's confusing.
