The benefits over drumagog are this: Sample Accuracy & no extra playback DSP. (I know you can print drum-agog and that solves the DSP problem.)
Downsides: Takes a long time to cut triggers for Kick & Snare.... especially metal tunes!
But its how I make a good chuck of my income is just from cutting triggers for other engineers.
Should have read your post before posting the one above. Sound Replacer ? I'll have to google it. I can relate to cut and paiste on drum tracks taking time. Expecially when you have overhead mics involved. I just record for a hobby, when Im able, and I dont have acess to expensive equipment. So alot of my stuff has alot of cut and paiste.
