Take another look at your message. You're saying a product that's being used by hundreds of people around here, is crap. You never said what specifically sounds crap about it, you just said it sounds crap. A stupid question gets a stupid answer.

Sorry it isn't the answer you want but I have to agree, it's you. If the expectation is that they are going to slide right into your mix and be perfect w/o any effort I think you are misunderstanding the goal of the product.

The drums themselves don't sound like crap but the presets aren't that great. With proper processing they can sound as good as anything else.

We are talking about the NY kit here right, my question isn't trying to be dumb its just that I cannot get it to sound half decent, specially the kick lacks any low end dont you think?

It takes a skill engineer to make them sound great. But even the preset sounds good. The toms are probably the best sounding samples available , not to mention the Ambience microphones.

For me it was the snares; kicks are quite usable. Snares are not too good, imo.

The snares (especially NirZ) are some of the best I've ever heard in my life tbh, you just need to adjust the envelope control and get some slow-attack compression on there to kill the ring, pop-city

I like the snares a lot too, but I've recently been stacking them with a sample or two. I replace the kicks.

The toms are great too. Mostly I just find myself needing more or better cymbals, but I'm thinking of buying MF to fix that. And SSD EX helps for now.

Yeap the snares are that bombass pussy dude.

But on a more serious note. It just really takes a lot tweaking to get it where you want it, but I think thats a good thing bc it helps you learn how to work with bleed and things like that.

I just recently purchased the upgrade to 2.0 (Toontrack is getting rid of the upgrades for $40 USD, couldn't pass it up) but it was a download with only a limited amount of samples, and I have to wait for the rest to come in the mail. OH THE AGONY!!

But I actually really like what I have so far. Yea, the one kick I have isn't the best, and I'm missing a few snares, but I'm beyond stoked with it so far. So far I'm only using the internal effects, which I expected to be crap, and i'm totally happy with my temporarily stripped down version. What I'm really looking forward to though is getting the rest of the ambient mic samples (I only have ambient close atm) and the fucking OZONE CRASH!! And more Chinas. And more kicks and snares.

Oh and by the way, if anyone didn't know about the 1.0 - 2.0 upgrade price drop and didnt read my entire post,

FOR A LIMITED TIME REGISTERED DRUMKIT FROM HELL SUPERIOR CUSTOMERS CAN UPGRADE TO SUPERIOR 2.0 FOR ONLY 40 BUX USD

Yeah but you like BFD too so...

Yeah it's totally you dude, the kicks DO suck. Every single Toontrack release has shitty kick sounds. But 2.0 definitely rocks as far as everything else really. I've heard far too many clips of just straight 2.0 (kick replaced 100% though) sounding epic. If I needed a sample library for constant use I would probably buy it myself.

sometimes when you do this on your own and have no kinda response you work yourself up when your instincts are far.
