Is there a way to use a drum kit without programming it? For example, if I click on the 808Core Kit.adg in the Browser Content Pane, I get an audio preview. However, if I drag it to a MIDI track, I then have to program the beats myself. There may be a time when I just want the basic beat I heard in the audio preview. Is there a way to automatically use the same beat that was heard in the audio preview without having to program it in the MIDI Note Editor?

Not possible. The preview drum loop is a pre-recorded audio clip inside the .ADG file.
