What is the best drum machine for a sound from "RUSH" to "The ROOTS"?
I have a roland vs880ex and I'm not a drummer, a guitarist. Thanks for your input.
Most of the drum machines that are out these days are capable of sounding pretty good...I'd venture to say that the skill of the programmer will make the biggest difference in the quality of your tracks.
I think This is one of the bests Elektron Machinedrum SPS1:bounce:

Looks like a great drum machine LecZ, might just be what I'm looking for. Too bad it can only be bought direct.

or if software is an option theres always the beautiful BFD. But thats if you want the drums to sound realistic
Am I right in believing that software-based drum simulators impose too much delay for live performance with a MIDI trigger/controller? I know that if I connect my MIDI keyboard through a software-based synthesizer, the delay is long enough that I can't play and listen at the same time -- it screws up my playing.

Most Drum machines now are pretty versatile as far as sounds go. Boss and Roland have very good "real" drum sounds and Korg and Alesis have more techno and Hip-Hop orientated sounds. One thing to consider is software samplers which can load a ton of sounds from all area's on your computer. BFD is a program that will play sounds, Sampletank, mach Fve, and Battery are all cool progrgams with a ton of different sounds.
Let me know if you have more questions
Please see my post in this forum called "Path to MIDI/Drum Nirvana"; we can continue the discussion there.
