    Im looking to buy a drum plugin (ideal VST as I use cubase). I currently use EZDrummer but ive been told several times that the drum sounds are letting me down.

    I really want whatever I buy to last me a while so im willing to spend quite a bit, id rather spend a bit on a good package to last me a while.

    My drumming skills are rather poor, so I would like it ideally to come with many pre-made drum loops and/or be easy to edit the drum loops.

    So - apart from EZDrummer, what would you reccomend please?

    First of all, who told you the drums were bad, and in what context? Were the drums in the mix when they heard them, or did you have someone more knowledgeable try to tweak the drums individually during a mix and then conclude that they were not very useable?

    See what I'm getting at? How do you know a big, expensive package will get better results than what you already can get? Are you sure you've tweaked EZ Drummer, and mixed them properly with the rest of the music?

    Not trying to make you an angry monkey, Monkey...just asking the obvious with the info you supplied.

    I'll ditto what kapt.krunch said but will add that if you decide to look at other options I would HIGHLY recommend checking out Superior Drummer 2.0 by Toontrack. The original Superior drummer was good but version 2.0 is fantastic....too much to go into here, just get on thier website and check it out.

    Hope this helps!

    Ditto what underbrush said about Superior Drummer 2.0(2.2.1 is the newest version ) It is unbelievable you don't need anything else and the mixing in the plugin is getting really good.

    +1 for Superior Drummer.

    The SD2.0 samples are 24 bit and the EZDrummer ones are only 16 bit.
