    Been using FXpansion's 'Geist' for quite a while now. I think it's very ez to use and has a lot of options. Battery is also good, but Geist is also a kind of bleat slicing sampler as well.

    Re. Kits.

    Vengeance samples (although everyone uses them).
    Wave Alchemy are good too.
    Loop master as well.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you know of anywhere to get a lay out of different types of break beats?

    I'm just learning to write breaks and would like to have some guidelines to study and experiment with.
