Newbie Question: Which Packs should I get?

Post by Chrisled » Mon Nov 25, 2013 1:20 am

I'm using Live9.1. I create ambient / alternative / rock music, kind of in a Sigur Ros style. I use Ableton for manipulating sounds with live effects and looping of bowed and standard guitar sounds and piano while playing with other musicians, but I want to start programming drum sounds now, both for playing live and for my studio recordings.

Lots of the drum sounds in ableton are aimed at electronic and dance music. Which packs should I look at getting to give me lots more drum sounds for a rock / alt music sound? Any help or advice anyone can give would be great.

Hey dude, just FYI, EZDrummer is at the almost literally unbelievable price of $29 right now at Sweetwater and AudioDeluxe. I might PM you just so you get this info too, just because it's a Black Friday weekend thing, and never before has this kind of quality drum program been this cheap or even close that I know of.

Session Drums is a pretty nice pack of acoustic kits... But it is probably pricey compared to that EZDrummer deal...

Wow. Sold!

Would be worth it just for the midi drum patterns.
