I'm tired of programing drums lately and my loops are stale. Every time I do a search all I hear are uninspiring "same ol' " stuff.

What I'd like are real drums mostly. Funky is great but straight can be ok too. I hate heavily processed stuff (flanges, overly filtered) and LOVE lo-fi.

Maybe someone has some suggestions? I'm afraid I suck at sampling (not to mention copyright issues)

Free or paid, audio loops or MIDI controlled, RE or VST? Plenty of fish in the sea.

Sounds like you are more in real drums... In that case just play different, try other rhythms or different quanta or completely new arrangements. Most of it will suck, but others may work...

If you are more in experimentation territory... Try different samples or sounds. Who says it must be always the kick, snare and hat combination? Try glitchy lofi sounds, short, long, pitched, noisy, stretched, fast or slow...

For samples and loops... Try to remix or rearrange them.

Yeah, this loopmasters thing could be a ticket.

Thanks for all suggestions.
