    Hi all. I am a drummer/aspiring studio-tech. I plan to add a digital drum repertoire to my studio. I know that the possibilities are boundless. I use Reason and know some about digital drum re-fills.
    I also feel somewhat restricted when laying down beats on a keyboard.
    I've played on some V-kits but only minutes at a time while in the music store.

    I want, "industry standard," digital drum sounds. What I'm looking for are sounds used in modern rock and hip-hop rap. Examples: Dr. Dre's beats, Nine Inch Nails drums, Tool drums.

    Would you list pros/cons on the following or any other products out there? Including Digital V-Kits, modules, software based intruments.

    Roland
    Alesis
    Yamaha
    Akai

    Any and all feedback is appreciatedl
    Thanks.

    I'm still on a D4 and have some V-drum pads and generally make my own pads and things to hit

    I would like some of the new HiHat software in the newer units from dDrum and Kat and V-Drums

    do lots of research as this is constantly changing
    BUT second hand stuff is well worth a look

    Cant beat the DDrum module, buy sample CDs, tweak the sounds and load them into memory.

    Vdrum pads and the Pintech pads are nice and responsive.

    Try running the DFHS sample library from a v-drum kit. DFHS is awesome - find out more here: http://www.toontrack.com

    Drumkit from hell superior (DFHS) rules for acoustic drum sounds. It's beyond amazing. I trigger it from my drumkat kit as well as the impulse drum machine in Ableton Live for electronic sounds. Best rig ever. Amazing.

    drumkat to powerbook g4 running Live with DFHS.
