That's kinda the problem -- there isn't really anything, other than going the Maschine route. Which is great, but involves hardware obviously and is a different approach.
For a purely software drum sampler / sequencer, everything else is wildly out of date (e.g. Motu's BPM, that Xfer drum module....I can barely think of the others). Battery has no sequencer.....
Geist -could- have such an edge on the market if it was more stable and worked more smoothly. I really want to love it bc on paper, it does everything I want a drum sampler+sequencer to do, but the experience of using it just isn't that fun. the UI is sluggish, response time for opening context menus is laggy and therefore annoying...oh and it crashes....it could be amazing, it just needs work.
but I'm not saying anything that hasn't been said 1000 times already in this very thread.
but competition / other options? yeah, not a lot to choose from. basically Maschine.... and like I said, that's a whole different approach to the same core concept of drum sampling / sequencing.
