    So I got reason 5 now, I know how to use it a lil bit. Just wondering where the best place to get drum samples from?

    Thanks in advance, I'm sure I'm gonna have a lot more questions coming this way.

    You can find plenty of samples on the various forum threads but i would start by getting yourself one of the dnb sample cd's and taking it from there.

    Then at least you will have a good chance of starting off with some quality sounds in your sample library.

    Vengeance Sample CD's are also very good quality samples. Essential House 1 and 2 CD's have some very good kicks and snares as well as some nice cymbals amongst other things. They have been quoted previously as a must have for all dnb producers. make sure you try and find em.

    I have pretty much all of the vengeance packs. Clubsounds 1 & 2, minimal house vol 1, electro, bass sounds, effects vol 1 & 2 and also the Danny Byrd sample pack. To be honest I very rarely use the danny byrd one, the vengeance packs are so vast and useful.

    Go to loop masters. They have free down load samples from most sample packs.

    Drumsound & Bassline Smith hospitality pack is pretty good. But like the others said, your best starting with the VECs. If there's any sound you need its most likely in them.

    www.boyinaband.com has some good sample packs, as well as some good reason tutorials.

    If you're willing to put some cash in, Primeloops.com's Drum Damage and Harder, Faster, Louder sample packs are wicked, I swear by them.
