For creating current drum loops. Is this mostly done with samplers? Not looking for dance or techno beats. more hiphop, rap R&B. I've been asked to produce an album on these lines. I've got the Roland XP with the dance board, but some of the sounds are dated, and the ones I like aren't a big enough variety to do an entire CD. I know what I want as far as sound but I don't know what equipment will take me there. I've got enough old synthes and stuff to creat basses, leads, Epianos and whatever. I need the drums. I do have Gigasampler. Recommendations on sample libraries I should buy?
Not a lot of artist around South Dakota want to do this kind of music, so I haven't built my arsenal up in that way, but I look forward to giving this a shot, an attempt, and I know what I have is not sufficient.
