Not sure which drum machine you have.
One approach would be to capture the drums into your DAW. If your drum machine does not act as a USB audio interface you could use the UX1 with a blank patch.
As for the HD 500 or the UX1, you would need to use one or the other as an ASIO device, you would not be able to run them simultaneously as ASIO devices.

It really depends on what workflow/application you are after. Many of the entry level USB mixers only send 2 channels to your DAW. For instance, you might have 8 inouts on the mixer, but it only sends a stereo mix to your DAW, which makes post recording mixing virtually impossible.
So one approach is to get an interface that has the correct number of discrete channels going to your DAW, and route all the analog outs to the mixer.
Or use your existing equipment and build one track at a time. Since I mostly record solo this is the approach I use, with a small analog mixer for monitoring.
