It's not in their store... but it is in the product list.  "Plug in a memory card to install a new instrument"... hmm.

No, it's not out yet. I asked about it in this thread over in KVR-land:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=275018

The answers from Muse Research were:
"There will be a drum solution for MuseBox but what plugin or plugins that may is still to be determined."
and:
"Unfortunately it has not been determined yet what we will pre-install on the muse box, but there will likely be something for everyone....Sampled Drums, Keyboards, Guitar Effects, and synthesizers."

So, reading between the lines, and extrapolating wildly, I would speculate that at this point even Muse don't know what the final solution will be - at least insofar as drums/percussion sounds anyway.

Cheers,
Scotty

They did mention Addictive Drums in the video.  From what I recall, it has a much smaller "footprint" than BFD2 and  Superior 2.0.

Aha! Thanks. I hadn't seen the video. Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if Addictive Drums made the final cut. What I wonder about is whether e-drummers can remove the guitar and keyboard sounds altogether, and have a "drums only" solution. He talks of the CF card on the video, but it seems that the card is to add new sounds only, i.e. we are still stuck with the keyboard sounds. (And, as Peter intimates in his post, a CF card is unlikely to be a lot of use if you want to use a reasonably big drum library ...)

I think you can add an external hard drive to the Musebox.   I too am interested if any drummers are using this.
