I am about to start doing live stuff again, and along with "from scratch" and "audio" stuff, I want MIDI multi-track loops (Drums/Percussion, Bass, Lead, Instruments, etc -- either seperate or together)... preferrably a relatively nice size collection too.. ( I miss my Yamaha Motif)
Any suggestions? Even if you can only recommend a kit that has Drums/Percussion only, or Bass/Lead only, etc, it would be greatly appreciated...
I want GM format, unquantized (seems like Groovemonkee.com got this goin on, and I like what I've hear from their samples), with many variations, fills, and hopefully a majority of 2+ measure loops. Specialty genres would be nice (DnB only, Techno/house only), but I like more general genres "Electronica" etc as there usually is nothing but more possibilities from "genres" "meant" for "other" use.

I want dope, rugged, different stuff, as well as quality standard but rugged stuff...
Any suggestions, and WHY?

Thanks...

i got the pro-sonic electronica/techno (or whatever Pro-sonic calls it) and rap/hip hop packages... not really impressed once i got them... alot of very similar variations, not much rugged stuff, not fills/alternatives the way I expected... I found SOME useful rhythms, but nothing extra special...

I used some of these years ago in Cubase with a JV-2080: http://secure.keyfax.com/mm5/merchant.m ... ore_Code=M

Still got 'em laying around somewhere... on floppies! I didn't think they were very good. I would think nowadays you'd be better off with audio samples and loops, especially with the audio flexibility and creativity you have in Live.

Actually, hambone 1, I like audio loops, but midi loops have more flexibility -- I can choose my own drum/synth/instrument sounds, change intricate timing and velocity, etc...
Any one else have any suggestions? Again:

My new live set is gonna be (for lack of many better words) Drum n Bass meets Dubstep meets hip hop meets trip hop meets techno meets breaks meets world beat meets ambient, with a twist and a lil bit of butter....
Any help would be greatly appreciated
