I’ve always done it this way too - except when I cheat and use Jamstix, but most musicians can spot Jamstix from a country mile away, so I rarely use it these days and when I do, I export all the sounds individually and compress, gate and EQ the crap out of them so people can’t tell that Jamstix stock drum sound I mostly use Steven Slate Drums these days played off my midi controller in real time.
I sometimes have to go back in to the MIDI editor and fine tune a few things, but stay away from quantizing.
For my electronic projects though I use drum racks in Ableton Live, and use a combination of step entry and real time programming and sometimes do go for a 1/16 quantize. For this I tend to use the drum machines samples which come with Live Suite, such as the 808, 909, Linn etc samples.
I never knew Chimpspanner (excellent moniker), so will try and take a listen/watch the vid etc.
