    There is a note on 9 seconds that doesn't sit well with me.(Sorry, no that should be 14 seconds) Otherwise it's got a nice and pleasant feel to it.

    I played it back again and the snare drum, gawd maybe it's because I have been listening to a LOT of real drum kits recently, but it doesn't feel real to me. I get that it is supposed to be very dry for this type of genre, but. maybe quieten it a bit, and add a touch more reverb. Wait no, can you swap sticks for brushes?

    I couldn't put my finger on it, but 'air' that is what it feels like it's lacking on the drums.

    nice clip... but as Sir Moose has rightfully identified.. the drums do sound dry....
    and for 300 GB of new drum sounds.. I hope this is not representative of the scope of SD3

    @Sylenth.Will.Fall what library/soft drums do you prefer and why?

    I have an acoustic drum kit.. and I would have to conclude that any software based drums that I have heard really can't
    match the real thing... even a lowly kit such as I have..especially for breath and naturalness of sound
    I wonder if a blind test could even fool a drum aficionado... the beat is just too close to the heart to sound
    very authentic otherwise....

    That syncopated gtr is killing me. Reel it in some IMO Give it some more variation. Its pulling the tonality of the track in a whole different direction

    Hey Buddy,

    A few days ago, a couple of us got together and this mate of another friend had a DW Kit that was ..well he bought it from here:-

    https://www.wembleymusiccentre.com/dw-collector-s-series-maple-hunter-green-to-black-fade.html

    We compared AD2's finest kits to it, and if I'm being entirely honest, compared to that kit? AD2 sounded like a homemade popcorn maker! That's left me disillusioned with it, and hunting round for something better (That doesn't cost almost £5,000)

    Since then, ANYTHING I've heard software wise has been blown to smithereens. AD2 is no longer a viable solution for me!

    Cheers HD, that's appreciated and ya know? I think you've hit the nail on the head. A 2nd hand decent kit might be the way I need to go!


    Could someone please check to see if the other site is down for me? I got thrown out. Right now I'm thinkin' a must have told 1 corny joke too many!

    I quite liked it. It's taking shape.

    Here's what I would do next though.

    1) The instruments sound like they're on their own as opposed to slotting together, so 'glue' them together
    2) Construct an intro /body/break/ending. and vary the instruments. playing the whole time gets a bit tedious.
    3) every now and then, put a smack of reverb (not too loud) on a snare to wake me up a bit because I'm falling asleep. (not because of your track though)

    The idea of sampled drums is to avoid the weak spots that a digital library has over an acoustic kit. You do have to know what is possible and what not, so you avoid doing it in the first place.
    Its not the sound that is the problem, most drums are sampled just fine (minus the tom drums).

    Couldn't agree more :yes: The guitar is killing the whole track....Sounds real tinny\overly treble, excessively thin and is well just bad.
    Sounds like a real cheap single coil fender copy through a bad amp by someone with a broken wrist on top of carpel tunnel syndrome :dunno:....Need totally loosen it up, incorporate some variations in rhythm\syncopation and work a lot on the sound. It certainly isn't fusion either in my opinion...but more along the lines of bad elevator music...Bass doesn't quite sit right either right either and a little too much through the mix for me.....Drums sound about the best thing on the track but for me personally could do with more snap on the snare, punch/eq on the bass and the cymbals need work. In fact don't like the snare at all am afraid. Track at certain points sounds overly squashed or compressed maybe also. On the positive side quite like it in places with the piano contrasting at certain points.
    As @Herr Durr said the content is pleasant enough but without say a lead to take it in a different direction it's like a bad backing track from one of those CD's that come with guitar mags.
    I appreciate it's just a demo though and is always cool to listen to stuff but the sound needs totally reworking imho & content or direction needs adding....Could turn out great though with some work & thanks for sharing though as is cool to listen and gauge an idea as not used SD3 yet :bow:

    Very nice but I don't hear anything special from the drums. I mean that it could have been done with any other drum library for that matter.

    Nonetheless, good vibe.
