Drum programming questions
 
What are some good quality programs to create drums with realistic sounds?

Also, do any of these programs let you upload midi drum tracks?

Try Superior Drummer 2.0 and after that install METAL FOUNDRY or so... google it IT'S ALMOST THE BEST

This. I've been using SD 2.0 with Metal Foundry for some home recordings and it's amazing the versatility that you can get with the drum sounds. It lets you mix the drums within the program, alter the amount of bleed from other other kit pieces, and apply effects right in the mixer. Some of the EZX kits are decent sounding "pre-mixed" kits that still allow you to mix and match drum pieces (different cymbals, toms, etc.), but The Metal Foundry sports unprocessed samples with many different kit pieces that just allows for insane flexibility in the sounds you can get. It's something like 30 GB of drum hits and took me about 2 hours to install. Honestly, the EZX's would be a good route to go if you don't want to really hassle with trying to fine tune the drums sounds yourself. Even they allow for some flexibility in the set assembly.

And, yes, they have pre-recorded, unquantized midi files that you can just drag and drop into you DAW. You can purchase packs, but each expansion has it's own files that are included.

Don't buy any of that stuff from Toontrack's site. You can get it a lot cheaper at a place like Audio Deluxe or a few others online that I can't recall. If you want, I can send you some files of stuff I've recorded using SD 2. Hope this helps.

Metal EZX
Toontrack's newest release is Metal! EZX, a drum sample library for EZdrummer based on a new drum recording engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, In Flames, Behemoth, etc). The raw material was then individually remixed by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Six Feet Under, Holy Grail, etc), Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, Job For a Cowboy, Born of Osiris, etc) and Bergstrand himself into nine drum kits tailor-made for metal. Metal! EZX is a must-have for recording enthusiasts looking for the absolute best tones in programmable metal drums

Of course I prefer real drums but this works awesome.

When a grid is fixed to a time signature like 1/16, what exactly does that mean? Does it mean one square is a 16th note? Meaning 4 whole squares are quarter notes?
Then what does the term "Eights and Sixteenths" mean?
What are four-, eight-, -sixteen-, and thirty-two-bar sections mean exactly?
Also what is an off-beat?:emot-eek::emot-eek:

EZ Drummer 2, Superior Drummer, Steven Slate, and BFD2 are the industry standards at the moment.

Toontrack's freshest discharge is Metal! EZX, a drum test library for EZdrummer dependent on another drum recording designed by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, In Flames, Behemoth, and so forth). The crude material was then independently remixed by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Six Feet Under, Holy Grail, and so on), Jason Suecof (The Black Dahlia Murder, Job For a Cowboy, Born of Osiris, and so forth) and Bergstrand himself into nine drum packs customized for metal. Metal! EZX is an unquestionable requirement have for account aficionados searching for the most perfect tones in programmable metal drums

If you want realistic drum sounds you need real drums. There is not a single tool that can actually sound like a real drum on the market. I don't wanna sound like a snob: I tried a lot of different software throughout the years myself but couldn't find a good one as well. So, right after we sold our little flat in Greece and got rid of annoying neighbors I bought a real drum and recording with it since then.
