This is my default for sampled drums following recommendations from a couple of other folks here: https://www.powerdrumkit.com/

Another recommendation for MT Power Drum Kit - while you only get one set of samples with it, they're good usable samples and the grooves are great too - as long as you aren't doing dance music (they're mainly rock based but in a variety of styles).

I used to think MDrummer Small is great, and I love Melda as devs, probably my favourite plugin dev but MDrummer Small I find has some quite serious issues. For instance I used to find the beat changes for a bar even if the note for that bar is the same as the one preceding it,

I gave up and switched to MT Power.

Despite my post count, I know nothing. Think of me as the court jester!
