Has anyone experience a problem with not being able to add a drumbeat loop to a prerecorded project?  When I open the loop browser, there are only a few options available.  The rest are greyed out.  I can only choose individual drum sounds, not full beats

I have created a project and recorded 2 tracks, one with a guitar and the other vocals.  I would like to add a drum loop, but when I pull up the loop browser, all of the normal selections aren't available.  Some are greyed out, including "Beats".  "All Drums" is available, but when I click on it it pulls up some cymbal sounds only.  I've opened some old recordings in GB to see if this is a consistent issue, but it's not.  Only this one project won't allow me to use drum loops.  Which leads me to believe there is something I have selected or not selected within the project that's not allowing me to see all the loops.  Any help would be much appreciated.
