Guys, you need to lose that idea of buying loop libraries to do your electronic percussion parts. Just get some drum machine software, and some soft synths, and ROLL YOUR OWN!!!
There are enough automatable effects bundled with any of the mainstream DAW applications to do this kind of work, and to give yourself a completely unique and original sound, rather than paying out good money for someone else\'s little percussion jams. You can, and should, learn to do this yourselves. It will make you better composers and producers.
No offense to Eric or any of the other fine producers who make sampled products like these. But the word \"helpless\" comes to mind again--I just get the impression that people have no idea where to start creating their own personal sounds. Even with a product like Metamorphosis, you can (and should) get away from the \"programmed\" loops, and strive to use the GrooveControl, etc., tools to recombine the elements into something that is personal and truly \"yours.\"
Otherwise, you\'ll just have people saying \"Yep, he used loop #442 from yada yada collection\" about YOUR music, instead of people saying, \"I wonder how he did that.\"
