Disco Midi beats for Session Drummer 2 ?

I've got Session Drummer 2,  looking for some Disco Midi patterns (and possibly samples too).
Anyone know where I can get some?

I think you'll have difficulty finding much that's called "disco". Some older funk titles might be useful. Give Groove Monkee a bit of time. Their drum grooves include Session Drummer mappings. Check out the Retro Funk set. Is that even close to what you're looking for?

"Disco" is still sometimes a dirty word, especially in marketing.
Look for some old Soul and R&B grooves.
 
I remember reading that when the Bee Gees recorded Saturday Night Fever, they were actually trying to emulate a Stax/Volt feel.  It came out too polished and "white," and became its own entity.

This song is a good example of the groove.  Listen to the rhythm parts, and you'll probably find patterns that emulate them.

Honestly, i'd just program a "4 on the floor" kick and take a hi-hat line from another pattern.

Actually, it sounds more like kick on 1 & 3, with snare on 2 & 4, with hats varying, to give the groove. 
 
The bass part also adds a lot to the overall groove as well.

Just found a Disco pattern in Addictive Drummer 2 that comes with Sonar.  Search in the AD beats browser for "disco".
 
You should find "Song 14-Disco Beat", with variants for bridge, chorus, middle8, and verse.
