    Kontakt 3 how good are acoustic drums? i mean basic drumkit sounds.

    Kontakt 3 how good are acoustic drums? i mean basic drumkit sounds. i know there is more spefic tools for job but i list what i needed is very long and my budget is tight. actually i like indepence free durms but i want more different bassdrums etc. and currently i think if i buy indepence pro i need yet another harddrive. i know hard drives not pay much but still.

    Not sure anyone can answer this question for you...it's too subjective. Kontakt 3 has some drum kits, and for some they would be quite adequate. For other, perhaps not. I would not say that the drums are the highlight of K3, but you can indeed create with them. In any case, only you can really answer that question. Don't forget NI also has Battery as it's main drum software. In any case, personally I prefer other kits from other manufacturers.

    Nicely put Plaz123
    If you want the best drum sound you need multiple layers per key (per note) to capture flexibility of dynamics - some drum samples are sampled over twenty times per key. BFD2 is worth a mention for straight ahead kits percussion programmed by midi loops - not so good on brushes and latin percusion. RMX is also worth a mention if you want mangling out of this world percussion sounds. There is plenty that can be done with the Kontakt sounds - I dont use them, but if a drum sound is a 'one hit take', it can sound wonderful and then the same wonderful and then the same wonderful etc . A skilled percussion programmer can of course do lots with the same sample using fx and things to get aound this
