    VEX kits (V expression kits) are new files that you can BUY and load onto your module to replace the roland stock kits. They are (usually) far superior in terms of realism compared to the roland stock kits. Have a look at the following

    and see the vexpressions web site at...

    Custom modeled kits for Roland, Pearl, Yamaha & more!

      I have to say I had bought the elite set of kits when it first came out and was impressed , but the the new master 50 drummers set I bought last week is amazing for the TD-8. Excellent work guys.

      Also while I am complimenting, the new vdrumlib v2.10 is awesome! I was able to transfer my old td-6 church kits to my new td-8 at church and create a custom set of those kits, the elite, the master 50 and some kits I designed and even a few factory kits, the best of all of them. What a great tool. Again excellent work!

      they are both well worth the money spent.

        If you're in the market, start with the M50. The VEX guys probably wouldn't be happy with me for saying it, but this collection will probably meet all your needs. I have several packs and only use the M50 and Brushes packs, besides one or two from the other collections. The other thing to consider is the cost savings if you buy more than one VEX pack. The new bundle pricing looks really good.

            Alan, guess I've blown my chances of commissions - except on M50s, perhaps!
