    I love NI Studio drummer, and I think NI drum libraries are the best sounding ones, but they have downsides: Only up to 25 velocity levels per drum. Randomization is not as good as many others. Default sensitivity is too low, which requires a none-linear curve and messes up the dynamics. No adjustments for hi-hat. With a good drum module and proper adjustment, some of those downsides can become less significant.

    I have a couple of very annoying problems here.

    First, the HH control seems to go to sleep. After playing for a while with the HH in Close position, when I try to open it at first, it doesn't recognize it, I have to close and re-open to get the HH Open sound.

    Also, my rim is not recognized on my snare. So, no cross-stick.

    The HH issue makes it unplayable for me. I tried different mapping like the 502, or 900 and also different open sensitivity. Didn't work.

    +1 for NI Studio Drummer, been using it for professional recordings for a few years now and for me it has the best balance between overall playability/dynamics and sound quality/versatility with mixing to suit different situations. I used to be a Fxpansion man since BFD1 and still have a soft spot for BFD's high quality samples but it unfortunately doesn't make the cut in terms of playability (restricted dynamic range on Vdrums).

    Superior is fab for practicing but i have never been able to actually use those samples on their own (i.e. not layered with SD) on someone's album - people seem to dislike the "harsh" sound of snares especially (always sound like their EQ'ed towards the high frequencies and too compressed).

    We're spoilt for choice all in all..comes down to personal pref!

    In my opinion AD2 sounds great (better than AD1) because of the new sound engine. Ok same kind technology and compressed sounds as in AD1 but still a AD1 ADPack sounds better in AD2. Then you have the nice freedom to tweak your sounds to whatever you want. I was out and playing with my coverband yesterday... and had complied 3 different sets...which I alternate between. The Fairfax toms sounds amazing on stage and I can not say that my 6 assigned cymbals sounds bad either... they actually sounds great listening on my recordings from the stage.

    Best regards

    No I haven't but I'll look at that. The only two I'm familiar with are BFDeco and AD.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks YZF that's what I was hearing before -- for what I want, AD1 will work just fine. I think I'll be saving up for BFD3.

    AD2 seems to have that same sound they have always had, harsh thin highly compressed and over processed. But their interface is the best out there hands down, you can layer instruments and use different kit pieces from other kits in your library But This is like buying a Ferrari with a 4 cylinder engine !! It just doesnt make sense why they would release this and not change sound engine ?

    They missed the boat on AD2......

    No - You can just install AD2...your AD1 installation can remain and work as today. They could exist side by side without any problems.

    One more question, should I remove AD1 first, or does it overwrite it?
