If you love your Drum machine plugins, but want to inject new life into them, then you could try linking up to a Ableton rack full of brand new drum sounds!  This way you get a new sound palette to play with while still retaining the classic sequencing and shuffle options of your VST plugins.

In this Quick Tip Kelvin demonstrates how to do exactly that - by using his classic d16 Drumazon drum machine to trigger sounds from a fresh drum rack of samples.  You can download the actual drum rack project used in this tutorial here: http://bit.ly/DrumazonToAbletonDrumRack  

However remember you will need to populate this with your own drum sounds once opened for this to work correctly.
