Okay, so I'm posting this to find out what techniques people use when using MIDI drum samples for a beat. I'm new to this idea and am uncomfortable with it. I know I'm not going to get a sound that's as "open" as an acoustic drum set. I'm going for a rock drum beat at the moment. I also like to use different kinds of kits. I'm looking for a believable drum sound. I know I'm asking for a lot but, I don't have the money or space for an acoustic drum set. Anyways, I'd like to hear from some people who have had the experience of using MIDI drum samples. I'd like to know what worked for them so I can get some ideas to work with.
