What is Strike like? I haven't used it.
BFD can use supported third party sample libraries where Avid AIR Strike currently does not support this.

Yeah i wish they would, but really you can get about any sound you want but you may need to tweek a bit. Or do what I do and use Drumagog in conjunction with Strike, when you want a differant sound

Strike in it's first release form from a music programmers perceptive is what a music programmer (Songwriter) needs. I personally dropped Reason's ReDrum for Strike but I've heard around the traps that from an engineers perceptive BFD is what an engineer (Producer) needs.

You may be able to turn great sounding results from Strike but IMO BFD requires less work given the third party sample library support.

And I agree Benoni, Strike should support the option for third party sample library importing. Then we'd lean towards UI usability discussions and feature sets.

I would have agreed with this comment, but BFD2 is much better than previous versions.

Although I am still tempted to add Superior Drummer to the Arsenal, just need to find an excuse

I've been using BFD2 with the Andy Johns pack - really amazing samples that are pre-compressed and EQ'd so unlike the stock BFD samples are ready to go right out of the box - you don't need to be an engineer to get an amazing sound.

I've not heard better for indie/classic rock stuff. Have had no problems with BFD2 and PT8.

I know this is OT but is this true? i.e Kontakt is buggy? I only say because I'm considering getting Scarbee Bass (I know, post a new thread..)

Default Re: Which drum program to buy?

well i'm still kinda lost with what to buy.

i'll explain a little:
i like to work in the midi editor programming the drums from scratch, using the velocity, changing the pitch of the same samples, composing things around the keyboard, midi real time properties etc.

now with that said, i would like a high quality program with great samples that works great with pro tools 8. has the whole direct, overhead, room and talkback mics that you can blend and mix and has heaps of tweaking. being able to import your own samples would be good to.

also i don't care about all the drum loops, templates, groove templates, special kits, jazz sets etc.

would just like something as i explained without all the garbage. hope this post helps.

cheers.

With that workflow I would definitely recommend BFD2.

It does all you require...and then some

Strike will do all that except import your own samples.

You should try the demo of some programs and choose what works best for you. No Demo for Strike though.

BFD2 demo

Battery 3 demo

I couldnt find a free demo for SD 2.0, but i didnt look very hard either
