  • Does Superior 2.0 have tightly tuned snares?

    Does anyone know if Superior 2.0 has tightly tuned snares that have a good crack? The examples on the website sound like lower tunings. I would love to hear some examples of tight snares and kicks.

    Yes, check out the demo 2nd from last "2 snare tight room."

    Also, you can use ASDR to further control to the drum attack and release.

      tight snares

      Thanks,I did hear those. They don't sound very good to me. They sound like regular snares tuned up electronically.
      I prefer the sounds in BFD,but it crashes my computer. Please let me know if there is a snare with a nice crack in Superior. I haven't heard one in any examples.

        You can add eq/effects to it either in Superior or send it to a bus channel in your vst and use any kind of plugin's you want. You can also tune it up very easily in there too. How high do you want it? It's got 5 or 6 different snares. One being a small 13" piccillo.

          snares

          I am just looking for a 14" snare tuned reasonably tight.

          I found all the snares in addictive drums to be tight,but the overall engineering doesn't seem to be as good. There are some nice tight snares in BFD,but that has been trouble for me with crashes.

          I have not heard a recording yet from Superior with medium tight snare. Can someone post a sound sample? I know you can edit the decay,but It doesn't sound the same as having the sound already tuned that way.

            Are you running 2.0.5.10 ? If not try that - if you still have issues post on the FXpansion forum and we can try and get you going. Crashes usually are related to RAM issues.

              Bfd

              Actually,I sold bfd 1.5 6 months ago because there wasn't anyone who could solve the problem.

              I did try the demo of BFD2 and the sound quality is excellent. I found that the sounds were doing the machine gun effect with rolls from my v drums. Does the full version with expansion packs do this? Is there a bfd demo with buzz rolls that I casn hear?

              I tried the addictive drums demo and it does not sound as machine-like. The sounds don't seem to recorded as well as BFD,though.

                I suggest you listen to our demos: https://www.platinumsamples.com/JoeBarresi.html

                The demo has very few velocities - so will sound machine gun since it has few velocities in the pool... The full version has up to 96 velocities and our packs have over 230.

                  Personally, I like the Nashville EZX Black Beauty. Nice "crack" to my ears.

                    i clicked on a few of these, and while the quality is good, they're all pretty standard fat /rock sounding to me.

                    nothing resembling a tight snare the way i hear it.. for example... manu katche, stewart copeland, carter bueford (sp), STEVE JORDAN !! ?uestlove.

                    take a brady, or a 4x14 noble and cooley, or a cherry craviotto and tighten that thing up...

                    all of course, IMHO

                      snare

                      Yes,that is exactly what I am looking for Radioking! I am very surprised that these sample libraries don't have many tight snares,since I would think that most drummers tune their acoustic snare fairly tight.

                      Bfd has some but I like the fact that Superior can be on the same harddrive as everything else. Addictive sounds tight but it seems to have a lower sound quality than BFD or Superior.

                      I wouldn't think that there is that much popular music that demands a low thuddy snare,but maybe I am wrong.

                        The demos were meant to demonstrate that the full version of BFD doesn't have machine gun problems as the OP said he had with the BFD2 demo (which has very few velocity levels)... I wasn't trying to sell our packs.

                          snare

                          A platinum samples pack with Manu,Steve jordan and ?uestlove type sounds would be incredible. I have always wanted a set of toms from 8" to 16" with the high toms tuned up higher and the low toms tuned low.

                          I have not used BFD since 1.5 . Does the new BFD work better?

                            The latest version 2.0.5.10 works very well. Our Jim Scott pack we're completing features a kit with Chad Smith (RHCP) and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers).

                              You can also use any of the expansion packs from Toontrack in conjunction with anything from the Superior libary which is what I plan on doing for some different cymbals. I love all the snares/toms on the Superior just want some different cymbals/effects stuff.

                              Also have you tried checking on the Toontrack's forum under the user posted songs?
