BFD2 - it's a bit pricey, but it is a real end-all solution for drums in PRoTools. Sounds friggin amazing

check out steven slate drums as well...

http://www.stevenslatedrums.com/

He has a specific drumkit that is supposed to be close to "nirvana's" drum sounds... as well as a bunch of other famous artists.

He has different versions of the library... one in it's own plugin/VI...then he has the same sounds mapped for BFD2, as well as wav files for use in sound replacer and drumagog.

There are certainly quite a few options to consider from the ones mentioned here and many others. BFD2 is certainly a very nice plugin, Strike is one I like a lot because of its integration into PT, Superior Drummer....NICE.... but if you're looking for something top-notch for doing your own programming, check out the OCEANWAY DRUMS. It's not cheap, but very much worth it IMHO.

MIDI aside, how does the sound quality of the BFD2 samples compare to the stock samples from Drumagog? I recently bought Drumagog and am very disappointed at the quality of the stock snare samples, haven't tried much else as I don't really need them at this time. Just curious if I should go with acoustic to MIDI transfer and use BFD2 or get more gog samples like Slate or something.
