I've had to store away my drum set and now I'm without drums. I'm looking for any good VST plugins or programs that I can download to my laptop and use.
I really enjoy 808 style drums. Simple beats (jazz, rock, pop) that I can play my bass and electric to. I want to stay away from realistic samples. I have Reaper downloaded on my computer and I also have an AKAI MPK Mini MIDI controller. I've downloaded numerous VST plugins but I haven't found any that I like. Are there any programs that come loaded with various drum beats? I'm not very good at taking samples and creating beats because it's too awkward for me. Especially on my MIDI controller. I know an electronic drum set would be a good recommendation but I can't afford one now.
I've searched free drum loop websites but most of them are just too over-the-top for me. Are there any that have a lot of old school 808 drum loops?
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
