ueberschall has released Liquid Drums
From the ueberschall website:
For the first time, you are able to move, pitch, stretch or even delete any single note of the snare, hihat, bass drum etc. loop without affecting the rest of the groove. All loops and single sound loops automatically adjust their tempo to your arrangement while remaining groovy and keeping their natural color. You can also try radical pitching and stretching to make everything sound more electronic. Unlimited control over the loops and multi channel layers, multiple variations, every tone of each drum instrument editable for total flexibility
