No doubt about it - that's what they do best.  I'm not suggesting DB  
tries to imitate them.  It would just be handy to have a guide audio  
track play along with the drum track, no MIDI, no effects, no mixer

That's the painful part I find.  Needing to listen to the the song in  
Pro Tools, note where a drum change is needed, go to DB, add the  
changes, bring them back to PT,  audition them, and if not right, go  
through the process again.

These discussions are all academic, if Ben can do it easily, I assume  
he'll go for it, if not, bad luck...
