Great news. This would be a handy tool to have available for sketching songs out quickly.

I tried Mt-PowerDrumKit, it works ok, but unfortunately drag'n'drop from it to Mixbus does not. So some alternative still needed.

Now I wrote a simple application that reads the grooves from the DLL and lets you browse, preview and sequence them. Then the sequence can be saved to a file or directly be dragged and dropped to Qtractor or Ardour.

* Preview of a groove is initiated by a double click.
* Use the Add-button or simple drag and drop a groove to the sequence list.
* the Play-button starts playback of the sequence.
* Export saves the sequence to a file of your choice.
* Drag the Export-button to Qtractor or Ardour to have the sequence there.


So having tempo setting to this would still be needed.

TBH i cannot find any drum plugin with drag and drop working on linux. I have addictive drums and when i want create drum section for demoing some tracks i run reaper in wine with addictive drums, create drum section and then reopen session from linux reaper. AFAIR d'n'd didnt worked in mixbus on wine either. wine reaper for me is the only solution.

With those MT PowerDrummKit midis extracted to files, those files can be d'n'd to Mixbus from filemanager (thunar)

So it would be possible to browse those with VST ui, and then select same midi from file manager. Not optimal, but possible.
