Help with a particular drum sound.

    The drum sound I'm trying to get is what a lot of the smooth jazz artists use for drums. It's not totally electronic, and it's not a fullly organic sound like a real acoustic kit. It's somewhere in between, but really tight sounding.

    My issue is that I use BFD for pretty much all of my drum programming, and BFD is just too real sounding for what I'm after. I also have an old SR-16, but even that doesn't seem to get me there.

    If anyone knows of the sound I'm after, and has any tips or tweaks for BFD that might get me close, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    You need to turn the rooms and the PZM's down on BFD to make the kit sound tight. But I know what you mean its really boomy.
