Are there any of theese libraries that anyone could recommend. A tittle etc.
What I would have liked to use Stylus for - was to make an 85% ok production af a song, let it demo around, pick up an artist and then produce a new final track in the studio.
At the moment a drumsession is used both in the demo process and the final production. It would be nice to demo only with a macbook pro and a goldchannel.
Following libraries would be really nice:
1 - The All American Pop/Rock Drum sound.
4/4 Straght (Green Day, Aerosmith, Avril Lavigne - In short Chris Lord Alge Sound - and really important, no funny stuff and a choise of dry and ambience)
2 - The D´angelo analog drumsound.
4/4 straight but Ok with a little swing. Again, no funny stuff or funny sounds - just the analog kit. (A track like "How does it feel" sums that up perfectly)
3 - The Portishead/Massive Attack drumloops
Loops with attitude - It´s hard to explain why I do not like a lot of the beats in Stylus but they do not sound cool to my ears (I know this is subjective ofcourse)
4 - The David Bowie / Visconti Drumsound
4/4 straight, no funny stuff
5 - The percussion expander
Classic percussion that you use 95% of the time. No funny stuff or funny sounds. Like recorded in the studio. I know Stylus got it, but a lot of the sounds are not in their original form and that limits their use
Again if any developer put out an expander series that was modelled after know artists style and sound (on a pro level like Steven Slate Drums), it would be much easier to pick up what you needed for your Demo.
Sorry to keep hammering on the funny stuff - I just feel that the funny tends to limit you as a producer, making you into a browser rather than a musician.
