Ease of Use

Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? One thing I would like (but would increase the memory footprint) is to be able to switch mic positions for individual drums, and not just the OH and room mics. If I could pull the kick mic out a bit, or push it more inside, I would be happier than I could deal with. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? I downloaded the manual a full week after installing the software, and only so I could discover the higher levels of programming on my down time. I found everything I needed without even thinking about the manual. Very intuitive software (if you are an experienced recording engineer and/or drummer) General Your general opinion of this product. I bought this without realizing they sampled Ringo and Bonham's kits for this library. Imagine my surprise when I discovered these weren't just merely the same model of drum kits, but the actual drums!! I did a quick cover of "The End" to test the Ringo kit and got VERY close to the sound without really even trying. Value Was this item an overall good value? Yes! You can't even buy a decent drum kit for $300, let alone all the mics, computers, and other accouterments you would need to capture them accurately. I can't wait for my next paycheck so I can buy the expansion packs!
