Default I'm interested in hearing your drum virtual drum tracks!

I am interested in hearing any drum track produced using STRIKE, or perhaps another virtual drummer instrument. Anything anyone would like to share - a track, a clip, even a finished song on iTunes.

I'm not a drummer, but have used drum machines since they first came out, but STRIKE, and I suppose, other apps the not only produce the sounds but play the parts amaze and confound me at the same time. I think it's about not really knowing whether it's a performance that I can say I created - or not. And whether I go down the road of tweaking a preset to the point of where I would have been better off just starting from scratch.

Maybe more important than actually hearing a track, is, what was your process, how did you get from point A to B and so on? If you used STRIKE, did you start from a preset and customize with your own patterns and kits? Did you stay within its own editing environment, or export to MIDI and work there? Are you a drummer, or consult with one? Do you edit and tweak the way human drummers play - things like being ahead of or behind the beat? Do you ever create a track like this, but also keep another one - one that is just quantized to perhaps a sixteenth note, where every sounds falls exactly on the tick, with no groove or anything to compare the differences?

Back in the eighties and into the next decade, the quest was always to get more sounds of any sort. We relaied on stacks of keyboards and sound modules as computer based VIs were just starting to become a viable option. Now, there is no shortage of sounds - good sounds. I'm still on PTMP8 and purchased STRIKE and Kontakt 3. I've still barely scratched the surface of what I can do with what's available to me. Especially with drums - even without the add ons I got BOOM, plus all the sounds in XPAND and Structure Free and BFD lite.

So - thanks for reading if you gotten this far - and I would really like to hear what you've done!
