Drums for Cubase Jan. 4th, 2013 @ 11:24 PM Reply

Hello all,

I just (almost) finished my setup to start creating music which I have no intention to make money from. I'm into death metal which is somewhat irrelevant, maybe not.. Anyways, I'm trying to find drums for the program Cubase. I have an audio interface, a guitar, a microphone but I can't program drums. I'll admit, I am new at this which is probably apparent right now. But is there anybody out there who obtained drums for this program with ease? I'm having a really tough time and been pounding out hours trying to figure it out,

Thank you
AJ

A good VST is Drum kit from Hell (it's the studio kit of Meshuggah's drummer sampled) or superior drummer is pretty good too. However, if you can't program drums you can use some guitar pro files and export in midi to import in cubase and start from there.

I'm pretty sure that tracks from The faceless, Behemoth or Cannibal corpse would be a good start.

There is a lot of tutorial on youtube too.

Superior Drummer 2.0 with the expansion 'The Metal Foundry' would be your best bet.
Otherwise, the cheaper EZDrummer with the 'DrumKit From Hell' expansion would be fine.

Toontrack's EZdrummer sounds decent. But Steven Slate Drums EX is more suited to your genre, is far more customizable, and sounds WAY better for the same price as EZdrummer.

I agree with the above statement. Drumkit from hell superior 2.0 with the metal foundry expansion.
It's worth every penny just because of the cymbals. I'm not sure how the quality of the steven slate cymbals are though.
Their snares and toms etc are absolutely amazing. But if you want fully customizable ( I'm swedish ) and non processed sounds then the metal foundry is perfect. I personally think that ez drummer suck . But if you find it hard to program drums then it's perfect for you because it has alot of pre programmed drum beats that you can choose from.
Hope this helps and happy music making to you!

Thanks folks,
I'm excited to finally put up a real song :D If anybody wants to collab I would say my strong point are my vocals. My guitar playing is almost intermediate. Power chord warrior ftw! Programming drums is going to take some getting used to.

I think Steven Slate Drums 4 blow Toontrack out of the water. To my ears Slate sounds better on every comparison.

Again that is my ears. Some might beg to differ.
