  • Metallica drum sound on Roland TD11?

    I have a Roland TD11 and I've been trying to get the Metallica Black Album sound for awhile but I just can't figure it out is there anyone who can help me or know of someone who can help?

    The TD11 is tough, since it has very limited samples and does not allow transient editing or sound layering. You can probably get close on the kick in terms of low end and muffling, but you will certainly not get that clicky attack which defines the sound profile of the album. The snare and toms are unlikely, but you can try! At least Lars does not use many cymbals... Newer modules like the TD17 have a big advantage for creating custom sounds, for sure. When you step up to the TD27 or TD50X, you can do anything and everything in sound-craft, including adding the actual samples from the album, if you like...

      Just play the BFD pack Chocolate Audio "The Black Album Drums"

        Hmmm yeah, the TD-11 can be tough for that drum sound. You could check out Drum-Tec's expansion pack, Alternative/Metal:

        The Tama Thrash Fat kit is pretty close.

        Drum-Tec has an expansion for the TD-17 that is literally named, "Mr. Sandman" on their All-Star Edition pack:
