Maybe the wrong site but I'll ask here before venturing into the recording forums elsewhere where i'm out of my depth.

I use Cubase LE 3 (I think) as well as ableton live line 6 ed, I'm considering reaper at the min too.

I want to sequence samples such as drum patterns and bits of percussion. Lets say I create a soundbank of small .wav files such as individual bass/snare/tom/cymbal hits and then want to put them together to make a beat. Is there a plugin or somthing so i can assign them to midi key strokes in one of my programs?
Got it:
Pacifica 604w, Hohner G3T, PRS SE Soapbar I, Schecter Ultra I
Fender 'evil' Twin, Marshall 2554 combo
