Hi Guys! I am just about getting into making serious music. What would you recommend for a good drum sampler or vst?

Thanks so much

What sort of style of music do you plan to make? This will initially dictate what software to go for.

I would want to dive into different styles of music, perhaps I would need something that could do most styles (if any)...??

There are plenty of good drum samplers. My favourite: Addictive Drums, Ezdrummer and Steven Slate Drums.

I think it’s enough to make good music.

Battery 4 is very good, but it’s more suitable for electronic music where you don’t need a lot of velocity layers.

For acoustic drums, the ones already mentioned are better.

Also worth mentioning that FXpansion’s BFD3 was released a couple of days ago too, which looks to be a serious contender in the drum plugin market, and more advanced than it’s predecessor.

Personally, I’m using XLN Addictive Drums, mainly using the Vintage Dry ADPak. The drum sounds on that pack are just awesome. Originally intended for that 70s retro disco sound, I’ve found they work very well in corporate/pop/rock mixes too, with a wonderfully warm and rich feel about them.

Hey Sherman!

Nice to hear that you are about to enter the Jungle :D

Battery 4 is just amazing! With an insane library containing 143 different kits, you will easily find the proper sound for any style!

If you want realistic and superb drum sounds, you´ll have to take a closer look at Toontrack´s Superior and EZ-Series. The Toontrack samplers and all the expansions have a huge midi library as well, so you won´t have to care about fills, breaks, verse and chorus parts anymore.

If you want to create realistic sounding drums I would suggest you the “Abbey Road Modern Drummer” – Library. Sounds amazing! I used to work with Addictive Drums too, they have an amazing jazz-brush extension. If you want to produce electronic drums you should have a look at those products by D16 (Nepheton, Drumazon…) Have fun! :)
