I've been searching the forum and also on Google and perhaps I'm not using the good keywords, but I can't find anything about my very noobish question. I have Superior Drummer (+ Metal Foundry) and I am not so satisfied with it. Whatever I do I can't make it sound good. It is surely partly because their samples aren't great, and also a lot due to my noobiness at this. That being said, reading here, I found the samples from Seraph Recordings! Going through it I am thinking "Shit, I could build my own drum kit with what I like!" So first question, are those only used to "Improve" an existing drum track? That is, you can't really use them as the basic drum sound? And second question, is how do you load them in Reaper? If I have my MIDI track, for the drum line, how do I say "the key of C should use THAT sample?". Saw people talking about Slate Trigger but man.. this is 100$... surely I don't need to spend that much money to just do that. I am sorry it is a very software dependant question, but I have no idea how to do it. Any help, link sending me to some video or whatever, would be appreciated.
