    First of all, I know this is a big request, but I'll ask you, maybe somebody help me :)I'm a guitarist, so I don't know too much about drumming. I've a BFD2 software, with Joe Barresi: evil drums kits. Now I'm learning drumming from saved midi files, what I open in reaper with BFD2...My question is, what should I set in BFD2 in "kit page" and in "mixer page"? I know there are some videos on youtube, but these are not perfect, and I think, for every kit should be another settings. I really like the drum voice in metallica's and justice for all album, I'll something like that.Can someone help me?
    Maybe easier with making video or with screenshots.

    Thanks in advance!

    The thing with bfd is you get the raw recording with the goods and the bads that comes with real drums. So you need to address the those as if you were mixing real drums.
    I made a trial of BFD and that's what pushed me away. If I take a vst to go faster on a limited buget project, I don't want to spend hours with mixing drums. And someone having the budget will bring a real kit anyway.. (found Addictive drums easy and fast to work with)

    But check on there website, the may have a settings exchange forum or something

    Just route the BFD channels to your DAW channels and mix as you would mix real drums.
    The pack you own really rocks and if you know how to mix your drum sound will shine!

    Now, if you want the metallica sound its better to look for the Steven Slate Drums, I have the 3,5 Version with the black kit.
    You can't find better samples to sound like metallica than these in my humble opinion.

    But mix with the expansion you own they really worth it!
