In electronic music, loops are used very often - you can take a loop, put into your project, change it somehow and get the work done.
As I'm practicing with my guitar at the moment, I'd like to have something like a loop collection, but for rock\metal styles. Say, 20-30 different drum patterns should cover any demo track - especially if they can be easily modified.
What I want is not just a collection of wav files - I want something like drum patterns, recorded midi events for each type of the drum\cymbal. Then I will be able to choose them, modify, select an appropriate sampler or virtual instrument and concentrate on the guitar playing.
My goal is to simplify the process of creating demo songs (just for myself) - I'll put appropriate drum patterns quickly, instead of long co-operation with a real drummer or (even worse) drawing the notes manually.
I know there are some variations of banks for samplers such as Kontakt, but to be honest I haven't seen any decent bank with not just one-shot samples, but a decent collection of pre-recorded midi patterns. And it's even in electronic styles! For rock\metal that must be even worse.
Any suggestions guys?
