Will give a look. Ya, looking through my library of a bunch of drum machines there's the ones that want to be accurate to rock/"the standard drum kit" and then there's ones with samples in mind that you can tell electro/rap were in mind for the fundamentals. I think I recall early Agoraphobic Nosebleed albums used an Alesis drum module similar to the model you mentioned? Don't ask me how I remember.
Not to derail my own thread but has anyone checked out the 8bitdrums app by Canon on iPhone (back when I actually had one)? I always thought those were good samples. ...wonder if they're royalty free.
