Default Which drum program to buy?

Just a question. What would be the best drum program/good drum samples to work with that is reliable and works well with Pro Tools 8.

I record drums and use structure and boom for most projects. But I would like something that sounds great that you can program down to where abouts you are hitting on a snare to how close you are hitting on the hi hat bell etc. Think Alternative/Industrial/Rock style.

Cheers.

Steven Slate Drums sound GREAT...it's just too bad they use the Kontact player.
Never had any problems with my system 'till I installed Kontact...when I'm using it my system is a little unstable
Plus you have to use midi files to trigger it, no built-in player like BFD2, or Strike.

For in-depth tweaking, BFD2 is definitely the way to go

That was my concern also. DON'T use ANYTHING NI was the message of the day.

I've had no issues with the Kontakt Player 3.5 & SSD. Thankfully

So BFD2 is the way to go it seems. What is the best one to buy? Does the stock standard come with most of what you need?

Two people vote BFD and you're sold?

I hope BFD2 plays nicely with PT8.

BFD1 and PT were never good bed-fellows.

EZ Drummer and Superior Drummer are also very good.

That's my 0.04

BFD2 plays very well (version 2.1.0.47) with PT 8.0.

Ha Ha I'm not sold. :P

But like I said, I want something that can produce great results for Alternative/Industrial/Rock, has some decent in depth tweaking, great samples and works good with Pro Tools 8.

What is Strike like? I haven't used it.
