For drum programming, I'd look at either Reason (obviously) or FruityLoops (better for my purposes). They take VSTi instruments, do sampling, offer a shit-load of features, allow sequencing... worth checking out.
I use SoundForge to edit mainly.
Of course, you'll be using trial versions of all of these programs. ...Naturally.
