Does this expansion not include snare bottom mics for some reason?
Regardless, this is a pretty cool expansion. I disobeyed my orders, by buying something BFD during the last sale and took a gamble on this for $29. On paper, this appeared to have good value, with two distinct kits and also including a compliment of cymbals. I love Rides and it has four of them and they sound nice, the Proto being my fav I think.
I only did a quick fader mix, but overall I find the kits to be very organic and lively sounding. The room sound is small and intimate and really gives you the impression that you’re in there with the drums. I feel like this would be fun to play with an eKit. The kits, especially the jazz one would be great to mangle, or get a lo-fi sound. One of the Jazz kicks sounded a little floppy to me and not as useable out of the box as the other, but I probably just need to spend more time with it.
So that’s it, just my quick thoughts on this expansion. I think it was a good buy and you should consider it, when it goes on sale again.
