I've been using the Hotstepper drum machine for a while now (cuz it's free and easy to use) but I primarily write metal. The only problem with Hotstepper is that there are no Toms or Ride cymbal and only one mediocre sounding crash cymbal. Is there any way I can take samples from say Acoustica Beatcraft (free demo) or anywhere else and somehow make them usable in Hotstepper? It doesn't seem likely to me to be able to do that, but I'm not as savvy with this stuff as some people on this site probably are.

Also, is there any other free drum programs that anyone could recommend? I'd love to be able to just buy an awesome program and have much less problems with sound and options, but hey, I'm broke. Thanks in advance
