The only way you're going to get anywhere is by using your ears and deciding for yourself which sounds you want to use, not asking on a forum. Put in a simple drum pattern and flip between kits and then decide yourself which one sounds best to you.

And they're both in Spark, along with a LOT of other machines.

Play around and see what appeals, as Stabs advised.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

Looking at the picture you posted, it appears you have Ableton Live installed on your computer (there's a folder I see named "Live copy 2"). If that is true, you don't even need to waste your time with the Spark VST. Ableton has a free downloadable Live pack filled with loads of vintage drum machine kits. Each individual drum machine will appear in your Drum Rack options once installed for quick and easy access. Just create a user account on Ableton's website to download it, or Google search for another means to download it (it is free, afterall). The Live pack file name is called DrumMachines_r30569_v9.0.alp

https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/drum-machines/

It has pretty much every pre-MIDI Roland drum machine set up on there, including the super minimal Boss DR-55.

getting fed up with the OP - he seems to want to be spoon-fed everything without even really experimenting or even really knowing what minimal wave is. i'd say stop replying.
