I know midis can be made using sheet music, how do most of you do the drums and stuff thoug?
There are many ways to do this.
If you know anything about playing drums, then you can either enter each beat separately (using the step editor in a sequencer) or you can program a keyboard to send on channel 10 (normal channel for drums in midi sequencers) and play the 'notes' using the keys.
Unless you know a little about playing the drums, this usually doesn't result in a very good track, because you don't have the 'feel' of a drummer.
Alternatively, there are plenty of programs around which allow you to setup a sequence of patterns and fills, etc. - I guess this is probably the way most people work. Fruity Loops is popular for this, as is Drum-a-Gog - but I'm not the best person to ask about these applications, since I work using a keyboard.
