Just used a few times, but having a blast with this software. I think you can get the sound you need with all the adjustments possible.
I own these and use them. I own a smaller commercial studio but use them mostly for personal compositions. They are an absolute great writing tool. Easy to get great sounding drums up in a hurry. I've tried several others and found these to be far better. I prefer live drums in final songs but have used these to supplement on several occasions with great results. The only issue I have is I wish it was easier to pan. Doesn't seem to be possible on the mixer section. It's not really hard but doesn't seem to be as intuitive as it should. Certainly not a reason to discount these. They are certainly worth it.
I love this set! I have BFD2 along with the Joe Baressi Evil Drums, Jazz n' Funk, 8Bit Kit expansion packs, which are awesome in their own right, but it takes a lot of work to get those collections as professional sounding as these. I can quickly get an idea of what the final mix will sound like with SSD3.5.
As much as I love SSD, I have a couple complaints:
I haven't been impressed with the hi-hats. the detailed nuances of the hi-hat just don't sound very natural to me on V-Drums. More levels of sounds between open/closed hi-hat positions are needed. I am hoping the upcoming SSD Deluxe expansion packs improve upon the hats.
My other main complaint is the interface. I much prefer the slicker BFD2 interface. I am looking forward to the Steven Slate BFD2 expansion pack (if it ever materializes) since that will give the best of both worlds.
These complaints aside, this is an incredible drum program and a must own for anybody doing music production with acoustic drums!
