My brother is looking into buying a new drum kit, but I want to first show him the type of sound he could be getting using his V-Drums and simply upgrading his sound pallet to samples. Besides being a more cost effective option, using samples triggered by V-drums should prove much easier than having to mic and record an entire drum kit, as long as the sound is comparable. With todays sample technology, this should be no problem, right? Unfortunately I do not know the first thing about drum sample libs and would like some advice.
Is there anyone out there already using drum samples triggered by V-Drums? Which lib would be best for this function? I've heard good things about scarbee's Imperial Drums and Toon Tracks Drum kit from Hell Superior. Any of these libs have a preset for V-Drum use? We will be using these samples in conjunction w/ Logic 7 on Mac OS X 10.4 if this makes a difference.
Thanks in advance for your help!
