Im looking into buying a drum machine/sampler. I realize that Jamie Hince of The Kills uses a vintage MPC.

All of the samples that I have heard on youtube sounds like techno hip hop beats. I know that a drum machine isn't made to replace a drummer which isn't my intention.

It seems like alot of the kills rhythm sounds more natural.

Take this song for example, the drum sound doesn't really sound the way a drummer would play but it has nice acoustic samples.

Would there be any way to get those sounds from an MPC 500?
Would sounds like that already be included or would I need to sample?
If so how would I sample them or where?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I play drums but am completely ignorant about drum machines/ how sampling works. Alot of stuff ive found on the internet is pretty vague.
