How many ever use a sampled kick or snar (pop and alike) instead of the real thing? I've had a few battles over this saying they can tell the difference every time. I sent a track out to someone (we all respect) and they couldn't tell the difference, and he didn't believe me. After twenty years of programming, it can be done. I'm not saying you have to program for twenty years either, only that it has many advantages. Some use a trigger and some use midi.
