I'm looking for some decent dry acoustic pop drums, for some modern piano-based pop music with female vocals. I am looking for a dry studio in-your-face feel (eg, I gave this example before, and I'll give it again www.luciesilvas.com - listen to the drums).
The only thing I have found is "Spectrasonics Backbeat" which was used on Delta Goodrem's "Innocent Eyes" album. But I can't seem get them to sound as good tonally as they do on her album.
Other samples, like Big Fish Performance Drums, and most other kits and loops, either have too much reverb or not real sounding enough.
If anyone has first-hand experience with some decent dry pop loops/drums, or knows how to "fatten" them up to sound commercial, ideas are deeply appreciated.
