GEAR ADVICE (external sampler with Logic Studio Pro 9???)

I produce mainly hip hop related tracks. I've got Logic Studio Pro 9, but not entirely happy with the drum sound I get. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what LSP9 does, but I'm unable to get THAT drum sound from the machine. Question is would it be better to get get some SSL virtual processors or just get something like a MPC? I'm working with a limited budget, but serious about investing in gear to get the best possible sound I can. Perhaps there are virtual samplers or plug ins to give me that ..., well, you know that sound I'm talking about ;-)

Advice appreciated!

"That" sound.. now are you meaning as in the sound itself, or say, the sound a paticular peice of equipment gives the sound?

Are you sampling drum sounds or using stock sounds?
fcuk stock, use samples .. so IMO it downt matter what you use to play back the sample..

uhm...

i was a longtime s900/sp1200/mpc60/mpc2000xl user.

i use logic 9 to make beats now.

the exs24 sampler sounds great and works seamlessly with RECYCLE!!!

man get yourself...a turntable and a nice a/d converter and voila...instant dopeness.

nevermind logic has a built in oscillator to beef up thin kicks

keep moving forward.

and before anybody goes off...yes i love and still have my MPC and yes nothing matches those machines sound.

but you can get busy in LOGIC. ask Just Blaze

U can get busy in Reason too, Just ask Dj Khalil.
People just follow one another in whats said!

Just keep making music and stop mentally putting obstacles in the way with things like
THAT SOUND!

The funny thing is most people think Mpc's have instant magic so they go out and get one and Guess again they get stuck and cant even use the thing then sell it anyway.

Subaltern go research some good plugins and buy some drum samples.

pick the right samples. you can get drums to sound good on any daw. maybe get better eq or compressors vs the ones in logic. i never use the logic stock eqs or compressors
