I am looking for a sample CD or a VSTi that has several kits for covering everything from Jazz to rock. I want to have a variety of snares, kicks, and toms to choose from. Nice velocity mapping too.
I know these posts get made a lot, but mostly I see people mentioning BFD, DKH, etc.
I was considering BFD, but then learned about how the kit is set in stone. You can\'t add more toms, etc. So I thought about DFH Superior, but I don\'t want to buy a new hard drive to accomodate a sample cd. After I sequence stuff, I send it to a real drummer anyway to lay down actual tracks. So I don\'t need the best of the best. Just something very good and flexible.
And I don\'t care about loops or anything hip-hop like.
I am ordering linplug\'s rmIV for \"drum machine\" sounds, but the more I explore GigaDrums, the more I like it. I purchased it over a year ago and never really used it. It has three sets of miking with direct, overhead, and room mics. It is very realistic once you hear all of them working together. (kinda like ewqlso platinum with the mic selections). It has 5 kits, but no brushes.....
Soundsonline has it for $105 through today, but it is usually about $150.
I stand corrected. I originally said that GigaDrums did not have any brushes, but I had overlooked one of the kits (kit 5). There is a jazz kit that does contain brushes. They sound really nice as well. Sorry about that. [img]graemlins/tounge_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Lik I said, I am just now starting to explore it more. You can easily reach 160 notes of polyphony with all 3 mic\'s loaded.
