Do you think there is room for any variation there? Toontrack does.
Joking aside, I know there is some debate about how strict the definition should be. Confusingly, D Beat is used to refer to the specific beat, a style of drumming, and a genre.
I was using it more in the "General Crust Punk Heavy Drums" sense. Whether or not it qualifies as D Beat depends on how strict you want to be.
A lot of the Toontrack packs actually have some "D Beats" that would offend hard line purists.
