I have been using an old Boss Dr. Rhythm and an old Proteus/1 which give me very limited sounds that are dated. any advice for upgrading to get a modern drum sound, got a Mac running Digital Performer 4.6 many thanks.

actually, the most realistic one is from Roland, but even a TD3 is expensive.
You may prefer to buy a Yamaha DTXpress, create some good patch from your own, then buy a plugin to "correct" the weak points of your tone generator: for example, some kick and some tom sound of Yamaha is VERY good, but cymbals are the worst noise you will ever hear in your life (or something like that :lol: ), so you may replace Yamaha cymbals with DKFH one's.

Look at the various plugins available now (BFD, DFH, etc...). They are absolutely the BEST for acoustic drums sounds.

HOwever, the sounds are the lesser of the problem: it's THE WAY the drums are played/programmed that makes the REAL difference. You can have a lousy soundset played in real time by a real drummer and get a good sounding track. You get the best samples programmed by someone who has no clue and you get junk.
