    Firstly, go get your self the temple of breaks and drum and bass drum loops. Secondly, just get wav. In wav they still follow tempo so no point getting only apple loops.

    apple and rex are good for logic and mac 'tings. Wav for windows.
    Dunno why but my ableton does NOT play nice with rex, I cant seem to warp 'em at all.

    There should be no perceivable difference in quality though.

    why not just use proaudiozone or audioz websites. As far as best format i would go with rex if you have logic

    Dunno if this will help but you can warp to midi which will put all the Rex hits into the piano roll for you to do what you like, or consolidate the Rex file after dropping it into your project, then you can warp to your hearts content :)

    Sample Genie can be good, but the content does need to be more varied. Some of the drum hits are blatantly just taken from other sample packs, not all the drum hits just some, probably the producers being lazy. Definitely a bit of repetition in the drum hits.

    It'd be good if the SG producers put their drums into the individual layers they made the main breaks from, or at least included the hits they used to make the break. I think there is room for improvement with SG, although it's still a good source for samples.

    Why dont you check out the new Break sample pack? Prime Loops are usually not the best quality, and temple of breaks are not going to be that helpful to you unless you use straight breaks only in your tunes.

    audioz.eu is ok for samples and stuff.

    Pretty much, but you don't have to go through all that he did. Literally just drop the rex onto an audio channel, right click on the sample and click slice to midi. Done

    Or drop the Rex file onto the audio channel, select it and right click, then select consolidate. It will then turn it into a wav :)
