I'd like to hear advice or comments on the quality of this set which is mostly from Sonar's Session Drummer 2. But I used a bass drum from EDIROL. It's my favorite bass drum so far so I'd like to use it with these other drums if possible.

Now here's the full EDIROL drumset. (It's an entire song. Sorry.)It's of lesser quality but I love the snare despite being not as realistic-sounding as the other one.

My opinion and hope is that I can use my not-so-realistic-yet-sweet-sounding bass and snare from EDIROL with the really nice cymbals in Session Drummer. What do you guys think?

Thank you very much in advance for your time.

Yea, I'd go with your idea, it's pretty solid that way. I'm not the hugest fans of session drummer's cymbals, but they're better than edirol.

So do eeet.

I've gotten the best results from layering drum sounds. The first kit sounds very natural and roomy, which is great. The second kit is very processed and made to represent only the most quintessential elements of what people look for in a drum sound, so if you use that kick, consider layering the snare and toms from the edirol kit under the session drummer kit (just be subtle with it). But yeah, that kick is fucking nice :D

Thanks guys.

Would you like to have the sfz and wave file for the bass drum, Snappleman?

Thanks but no, I don't use sfz anymore. I got like 500gb of unused drum sounds as it is :\ ...
