What is the cheapest route to get better drum sounds?
« on: January 21, 2019, 12:15:18 PM »
Since drumming is essentially a hobby, and I only gig a couple times a month, it is hard for me to justify getting something like BFD3 but I would like better drum sounds on my DM10.

What options do any of you suggest? I have an older laptop I could use for the MIDI'ing.

I'm broke, but a few months into having my DM10X the module sounds just weren't cutting it for me. I installed a trial version of Addictive.. I'd tried a friends' SD3 and something else he had (may have been BFD) but I really liked the look and feel of AD so I waited for one of them half off sales. I've continued to add other set packs every time there's another half off sale (frequently) so now I've got a crapload to choose from.. likley spent close to a grand now in total but it was a worthy investment, and I could have settled with the entry packages and only spent a couple hundred and still been satisfied.
DM10X with Addictive Drums 2, Pro X hi-hat, 4 crashes, 682 white mesh cone conversion, Laurin Drums snare and kick, Mapex P710W double kick pedal, Tama saddle, Panasonic noise cancelling headphones, Behringer 8 channel USB mixer, Tascam 144MK AI, Samson Expedition Escape powered speakers

GetGood Drums could be a solid option as well. I don't believe the sample library is too expensive, and the sounds are fantastic.
