I use Battery vst a great deal of the time and their Studio drum set is outstanding. I\'ve imported the wavs into Gigastudio as well and they work just great.
Another really impressive kit, for jazz and funk in particular, is the Steve Gadd drums (2 cds). At the end of the loops the whole kit has been recorded sound by sound at a good range of dynamics etc, and it took me about 2 hours to split each sound up and create great .gig files from them. The realism is superb and it wasn\'t very expensive.
Thanks for your input. The Erskine disk is on its way via the Tascam promo. I\'ll check out all of the other recommendations. On first glance, it seems that Purrrfect Drums is probably what I\'m after.
Another recommendation for Purrfect Drums! Nothing like the cymbals anywhere else in sampleland. (BTW, I\'m using the HALion version [bought it before I bought GigaStudio], but I assume the Giga version is just as good or better.)
\"recorded with world-class mics, preamps, and A/D converters (i.e.: AKG C24, GML preamps, Swissonic AD96 A/D converters). Pro-level drums and cymbals were hand-picked for recording of these samples, such as Yamaha Recording Custom, Ayotte, DW, Premier, and Pearl, and Zildjian, Paiste, and Sabian cymbals. Each articulation consists of 16 velocity cross-switch samples, and is allowed to decay fully and naturally into the noise floor. To give you an idea of how extensive the library is, there is over 1/2 hour of ride cymbal decay, as well as 17 hi-hat articulations. This comprehensive set is about 20 CD\'s worth of data, compressed to fit on 8 CDs.\"
