Very Natural, Balanced Drum Samples
I bought this based on a few positive review videos that I found on YouTube for Drumforge, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the samples. The drums are really well balanced, and all immediately sound good and solid, either in the natural or processed versions. Basically both sets of samples sound more like 'real' drums than most sampled drums - they just give a great 'feel' of being there with the drummer in the room. Highly recommended.
