      To give a better impression and correct my first impression, a very nice choice of cymbals, these are actual modern sounding, dry, trashy.....not found on other samplepacks.....these are very complimentary....really great, had a hypnotic session with the disco kit and deep tuned ludwig snare.....exceptional.

      The rides paired with the rock kits are not my things though....very good bell, but otherwise a little to china sounding.

      Also the toms on the Tame Impala (really special band) setting are very very cool and special sounding....

          To me, honestly, this pack brings nothing new
          Well, the VK snare alone is something special + also the Agop XIST cymbals and the Agop clap stack. This pack is definitely a winner! Just ensure to use high quality sound transducing gear and I'm sure the "special" aspects become audible.

            I have Hansa but it doesn’t have the toms fields of rock has which does matter to me. Hansa does have rota toms and octobahns though.

              Well I m a sound engineer and i m working with top quality gear.
              so I know how a good drums sound thank you.
              To me it sounds great but nothing new or exciting compared to other expansions.

              Of course the sound is great.
              I think last packs are in the same vein.

                Really the biggest factors in ANY drum sound is primarily the room, then the drummer (taste in tuning and playing style) then the producer (taste in microphones and processing). the actual make of drum comes way down the list. Apart from the size of the drums, people should buy SDX's based on the studio used and the drummer/producer credited.

                  Not really dug into all the standard presets available in this yet , ( so many good ones that I tend to stick to one for the whole session ) but noticed Omega drummer on YouTube has bought the expansion and already started making new presets .

                    My fav is still the Godfather Default. It just fits straight into my music I drum to

                      OK, so I might have went a bit over the top testing this, but I love it. the first 32 songs here, wanted to test it across a few bands:

                      and please excuse my rubbish drumming ...they were all done with the basic Field of Rock Godfather Default preset, strain out of the box. Music on one track, SD3 on another.

                      I love the classic sound of this kit and don't mess with its sound at all.

                          I definitely don’t feel that and I have used BFD3. I don’t think it’s anywhere near as realistic as SD3 and it’s a horrible interface. I think the stock SD3 sounds are a bit soft but not the newer sdx expansions

                            They need to release constant pack to keep office, payment, employees, or everything will close, it's just how it is, usually people have specific taste but no need to buy 5 pack at 200$ when you know you will end up using one or 2, especially when each pack don't have the same velocity hit which need re calibration for each.

                              I am not sure what this SDX adds to the large offering of rock sounds Toontrack already has

                                No lost of time is not about packs but about a conversation about realness of SD3
