Simple but versatile drum kit VSTi?

Can't really find anything.

Would like some VST with a collection of drum kits that I can just scroll through like presets in any rompler. Don't need bells and whistles, not interested in any programming, just large variety of kits.

Acoustic samples are of lowest priority. Hip-hop/electronic/pop/dance/experimental is of most interest.

I have a massive collection of samples (too big in fact that it's become an unbrowsable junkyard now) but 95% of samples are low quality and are just not comfortable to use. Also takes forever to mix them to sound good. I'm considering abandoning it.

I have Halion in Cubase which I like but that's pretty much it.

Stylus is old and has too much Stylus character, I don't really like it.

Would like with crisp, clean rich high-quality sound. I'd say pretty much every sample library I checked online demos of sounds too lo-fi, overprocessed and cheap or too simple (vanilla acoustic kits).

This is the root of your problem.
Sometimes it is just way faster to program the sound you need, than to browse through thousands of samples.

I'm not particularly interested in synth-based drums, I don't mind 1 out of 20 kits be of synthetic nature but not all of them. I'm into heavily processed stuff (usually acoustic). Kind of what they use in R&B/pop (besides obligatory 808), not house/trance.
