    Thankfully there's a demo version and I was able to see if I could make it run in Linux/Wine/Carla. I had to extract and organise all the library files manually because the wizard failed to do so properly, but once I sorted that out I was very pleased to find that it actually works. The only glitch is that it freezes if you click on any kit item in 'kit view', but using 'cell view' everything works fine.

      No stand alone vst, that's a pity.

        Good price and good sound, and a lot of free vsti hosts on the internet.
        SSD5 upgrade cost is HALF of the toontrack expansion pack now )))

          Agreed. There's even a a free host called SAVI that launches the VST automatically - feels identical to a standalone.

          Downloaded the free version - sounds great.

            Is there an actual instrument listing anywhere? I'm curious how much crossover there is with the MIMIC SSD5 sounds. I like it enough to purchase but not if I'm "mostly" covered by the stock MIMIC library.

              on mimic you have no electric instruments and no SSD3 instruments (so called "classic" - older, highly pre processed instruments with no overhead channel and low velocity layer count)

                Thanks. In that case I'll just save the $$ for future MIMIC updates.

                I do love that the free version of SSD5 is fully functional and not a demo or partial kit.

                  In my opinion you need SSD5 if you are doing some studio recording/mixing.
                  There are some shaping tools that would be overkill for a drum module (especially the new fully customizable ADSR envelope where you can change even the attack or release shape).
                  And SSD5 (new deluxe 2 instruments) has two room mics plus some additional FX mics on some instruments AFAIK.

                    Cheers,

                        I installed ssd5 full edition, it sound fantastic, there is new mic added on deluxe 2, on snare there is 2 top mic, 2 bottom head, 2 ring channel mic, etc, much more control on the sound and flexibility, SSD5 is unique on it own. Also Steven said they are listening, for new feature, new instruments sample etc..SSD5 will get supported.

                          Is there diversity in the Tom sounds? From what I heard the had similar sounds. Iíll probably grab the demo and take a listen as could be worth having along side SD3

                            Downloaded the demo this evening and it runs really well with my aD5 module. The ATV hihat works great, very smooth transitions between closed and open positions. Iím still not a big fan of the SSD5 crashes. Also, just like the Mimc, I didnít see any tip articulations for the crashes, but the full version may be different.

                              Have they added MIDI learn? SSD4 plays and sounds nice but lack of a MIDI learn and mapping.... no good.
