Thanks to the Covid problem, I recently started to record Jazz, Country, Blues, and Rock and Roll, which are the styles I play in gigs. I don’t have any interest in Hip-hop, EDM, Funk, or any of the other electronic styles. I’m looking for a really good drum plugin to buy with lots of excellent MIDI styles and samples for my listed styles. I own BIAB but its drum kits and styles are all in a stereo waveform. You can’t do much with effects on individual parts of the kit. I also own a Yamaha Genos and it has lots of excellent styles but it is a performance and play at home machine, which means the samples are not optimized for recording. I thought that I could use its MIDI patterns for each drum part and remap them to a different sample from Groove Agent SE but that’s a lot of work. I know there are lots of excellent plugins but I always end up with about 80% of genres I never use, which is of NO value to me.
Does anyone have some suggested ideas for drum loop plugins that would be of value to me? I’m using Cubase Artist 8, which has the basic drum plugin Groove Agent SE but as mentioned, there’s little in that plugin that is useful to me.
