In the spirit of more than one way to skin a cat ... consider this.
Pro Tools has some amazing editing features. One process uses automatic transient detection, chopping the file at the transients and then creating a midi file from the chopped pieces ... which chopped pieces then can be controlled by the midi file for time stretching.
To be clear, a transient is the initial spike in an audio file from no or quiet sound to a sharp attack with increased volume ... exactly what drums repeatedly do throughout a a song.
Like life, this isn't perfect as things like rings of cymbals can be fading out as a new snare, hat or kick enters the audio stream and the cymbal ring will persist in the chopped piece of audio. But it can still be really good.
So, the point is that it would be possible to process RealTrack drums to meet Bob's observations regarding groove. Just probably not in RealBand.
