    Default Drum Machine Plug in recommendations

    I want to pick up a new plug in for ableton of the Drum Machine (DM) variety. After doing much research i have found highly recommended synthesizers but not so much on the Drum Machine plug ins. I dont want so much a sample player as much as I want a sound generating drum synth.

    I have Reason 5 and like routing Kongs individual channels through rewire into Ableton but its not getting me inspired like a new synth plug has. Perhaps I need Reason 6.5 and the most current soundbank to breathe more life into reason. Or what I was thinking is perhaps picking up an actual plug in like the following:

    http://soniccharge.com/microtonic Microtonic . µTonic was created by Magnus Lidström, the brain behind Synthplant and Maalstrom grain table synth in reason.

    http://www.d16.pl/index.php?menu=14 or something like Drumazon from D16. They seem to be making faithful emulation of the venerable Roland TR drum machines, which is cool to an extent

    Any advice on what Drum Machine plug to get because its awesome and you love it. I make EDM or try to in the genres of House, Breaks, Downtempo, Trip Hop.

    UTonic is awesome, so many great ideas in that one and it can do some really wild sounds. Check out the Patternarium on their website for lots of examples.

    Patternarium integreation with Utonic is a fantastic way to import and export drum patterns. I think that alone is worth a lot. Its priced right too at $99.00 for Utonic.

    +1 for uTonic.
    Love the sounds I can pump out of that drum synth with little effort. It never disappoints and I'm always finding new ways to make sounds.

    also you can do cool things with sylenth or any fm synth. That way you can make tons of cool sounds
