Depending on the type of drum machine, you will need to set that drum machines MIDI clock to external clock and follow the steps for creating a New Instrument with sync options checked: 

Please read this article for setting up External Midi Devices with Studio One 3:

  1. To use the sounds of your drum machine and sync it to Studio One, you will need to create a New Instrument with the MIDI "Send To" set to your drum machines MIDI port. This allows the sending of MIDI+sync from Studio One to your drum machine.
  2. If you decide you want to use the drum pads to record into Studio one. You will need to create a New Keyboard, with the MIDI Receive From assigned to the MIDI in, but don't need the MIDI "Send To." And set this to  Default Instrument Input.
