    OT-Virtual Drumline?

    We had a discussion about this library about a couple of months ago, and some people seemed to be interested in it. Has anyone actually used it, and how well does it work with Garritan libraries? I'm thinking of getting it because the percussion sounds don't seem to be enough in CAMB or GPO, and I really don't want to shell out $200 for something that doesn't meet my needs.

    Do you use a Kontakt Player or a Kontakt Sampler?

    And, what sounds are you missing in CoMB and GPO?

    I use VDL 2.5 and it's great. Tons of samples excellently done. I had the same question about buying something I might not need but VDL provides so much flexibility in percussion that I have found it to be a great asset especially to wind ensemble work.
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I'm using kontakt player (hopefully not for long )

    Mostly it's a lot of the marching percussion (marching cymbals, better instruments for marching snares, tenors, and basses), and the obscure concert percussion, like brake drum and such like that.

    Cool. I might get it then, all the marching percussion and pit percussion sounds really good.

    Anthony,

    I can wholeheartedly recommend Virtual Drumline. We were so impressed with the sounds that we included some of them in Concert & Marching Band library. If you want more percussion sounds for your palette, you cannot go wrong with Virtual Drumline.
