    I'm totally in love my Superior Drummer2 and would like to add more grooves, especially jazz ones and maybe some more 3/4 and definitely some odd time sigs.

    Can the panel:

    a) point to some free and pay sources?
    b) coach how to get my own grooves into SD2?

    EZ Drummer

    You can use any of the EZ Drummer expansion packs in Superior Drummer. they are quite good, they have a jazz one, you can use both the samples and the MIDI files...

    http://www.toontrack.com/ezx.asp#jazz

    These are also not expensive at all for the amount of content you get:

    The Latin one might be useful as well because of the influence of Latin Jazz, Samba and Afro-Cuban Jazz...

    Not sure how you import your own grooves into Superior Drummer but I talked to Toontrack and they are sending me auth codes to their software and I'll try to figure it out : )

    lovely MIDIfiles! :) don;t need the samples, though. I've had my plugin frenzy with the Sonalksis group buy so countin' pennies atm.

    yes, I own that one - it's wonderful :)

    Let me know if you figure out how to DIY grooves...

    cheers

    Latin

    this was my favorite expansion so far, I like the Funkmasters too...

    You know if you have a MIDI file in Logic triggering Superior Drummer it plays it... with a little work you can simply assign MIDI notes to the corresponding drum in Superior Drummer...

    Still messing around with this- all of these developers want to send me their software for evaluation and I can't get my work done!!!

    indeed. That's how I've been using SD2 since I bought it, mostly.
    I have a pair of laminated sheets taped to my worktop with the drum assignations :)

    I just started creating some grooves and tend to continue do so. First grooves are based on the Herbie song Chameleon.
    Find the first batch at www.mikaeladle.se
    (note that these are mapped for bfd2)

    Hi Mikael - SD2 plays these fine, but I'm not sure about the mapping
