Recording and Live?

Superior Drummer + Laptop into PA

Why superior cause it's better, you can get a death kit out of any of the kits, but for sake of death, The metal foundry addon pack is also recommended. Just pray that you and your band will be tight enough to use this system live.

I think he meant a hardware device to act as somesort of midi-instrument. A real drum machine with pads.

No idea though.

Sign your god damn neg rep.

I dont care about the bass on some of these drumachines I just want the drums to sound good! Im not a drummer. I am a guitarist whos looking to do shows with a drum machine. Easy to transport to practice and gigs!

If you mean bass guitar: wtf?
If you mean bass drum: the essence of death metal is in the bass drum.

Without AD, SD, EZD, SSD or any of the other good sampled kits, gigs would sound bad.

I have a BOSS DR-880, and after some tweaking you can get the kits to sound pretty good. As long as you switch up the patterns and vary the velocities on the hits, it doesn't sound too bad.
Otherwise, do as niffnoff says: Superior Drummer + Laptop into PA

find a good human drummer.
if you cant, then resort to vst's

I like my guitar tone like I like my women, perfect rounded bottom end, cut in the mid section, heavy on the top end, and super tight.

Im talking about Bass guitar. Some of these drum machines come with a backing band section with bass guitar and guitar. Duh!!

Thats why Im wanting to get a good drum machine. No good drummers around here that are available and this is been going on for a good 3 years or so. So its drum machine time!

i love my alesis sr-16 to pieces. i dont need effects or a "fake" backing band (i do the bass and backing band myself). its reaaallly easy to use. you can make your own drumsets, its velocity sensitive. you can use ANY time signature. it wirks as a midi controller if you later decide to use a laptop with midi programs. each drum can be adjusted (tone,volume,pan). its just an awesome little machine. i got mine used off craigslist for $40 bux

See if you canget a used MPC1000. Then you can pick your own samples. So at least some type of sampling drum machine or groovebox.
