  • My "passe-partout" kit for the 80's, early 90's

    Been fiddling around, and I have found that the VST that gets me almost there every time is Music City by ToonTrack.

    Right off the bat, with minor tweaking, I get to a sound I like that is close enough for Pink Floyd, Queen, ...
    I add a fourth tom and one or two cymbals via x-drum andI am good to go.

    What's your "go-to" kit?

    I know many here like Evil drums, but I don't have that expansion. For me, Music City fills most of my needs. I like the sounds coming out of that VST.

    Not familiar with Music city but it sounds cool. I like the Gretsch blonde kit from Evil Drums, Ludwig Psychedelic kit from Evil drums. I don't know what it is but it just seems to me that the reason why Evil drums get so much acclaim, is the quality of the recording is so good. I like the warmth and the punch of all the kits. I like surprisingly, Rock Solid from EZ drummer for Rock stuff. Especially 80's stuff. I add some extra reverb on my mixer and I'm good to go!

      Yeah, I know... Evil Drums gets mentioned a lot... I just wanted to come up with something else... offer an alternative, maybe!

      I noticed Rock Solid, and it's big brother, Rock Warehouse, that was released last week.

        I've only dabbled a wee bit with BFD, the stock 2box sounds/editor, and am looking to get more in-depth with DrumMic'a...
        I heard '80's, early 90's' though, and thought I chime in!

        I've got my 80's covered with the Simmons and a 'vintage' D4 ...

          DrumMic'a is great, for a free VST, it is actually amazing.
          On a 2Box, you can choke cymbals, even if there's no choke sound.... on my Yamaha, not so much...
          And since I need cymbal chokes for a couple of the songs I play ... I'm back with Music City.

        Well, you guys with Evil Drums on Superior, stop bashing our ears about how great it sounds!
        It's not available anymore from Toontrack.

        Only FXPansion has it now with BFD2/3.

        I am NOT getting another VST host... gotta draw the line somewhere!
