Hello to everybody. I’m in the way to start to create some motivational and corporates tracks.Usually i work with samples and software instruments in Logic pro, the UVIworkstation, and also some Kontakt samples, but i think that i need more than that, specially when i work with drums and percussion samples, even when i try always to modify them and make some sound design.Any ideas about any affordable sample library that can be used to create this kind of tracks? Thank you very much.
Hello neisita, for drums try Addictive drums (cost 119E and you can try free version):http://www.xlnaudio.com/productline/1
Check also Mihai Sorohans free VSTs thread, plenty of instruments:
I use Native Instrument’s Abbey Road Modern Drummer as well as Abbey Road 60’s drums. I haven’t used their new Studio Drummer, but that should be good as well. You should be able to get some real authentic sounding drums for your corporate tracks with those. They aren’t necessarily cheap, but not too bad either.
Thank you very much guys!!!I will check all that options.
Hi, If You are looking for an affordable drums vst than Zdenek is right, try Addictive Drums. But I think You should check Superior Drummer. Yes it’s pricey but it will save You many hour of work that You must put into Addictive Drums to make them sound good in the mix. I was using Additive Drums and I went to Superior Drummer just recently and I am really sorry that I didn’t do that a lot sooner. Don’t get me wrong, Addictive Drums is great and has a lot of great midi drum patterns but the SD is just a lot better.
Hi SoundWaves.Thank you very much for the information and advices.The Superior Drummer it’s really amazing,as well the Abbey Road Modern Drummer. I also downloaded the free version of Addictive Drums for at least make some experimentation. Anyways, i have more information now than will let me choose. Thanks to all of you guys.
Hi neisita, yes, Abbey Road Modern Drummer sounds great, but is a pain for your CPU , as you can read here in the post by garethcoker:http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/any-tips-for-improving-kontakt-performance/68783?page=1#603983
Superior Drummer is much better, for sure is my choice.
we use NI studio drummer, not really painful for the CPU in our case, it just sounds great! So we can recommend it! Of course Superior Drummer is awesome but a little bit more expensive

Yes, it does tend to tax my iMac resources. Not only CPU, but also RAM. You do get the option for lite and full kits though, which helps, at least with RAM. It’s still very usable though for me and doesn’t usually cause me any issues. My CPU just gets a workout!
I’ll have to try Superior Drummer. I have used EZDrummer in the past, also from Toontrack. How does EZDrummer compare to Superior Drummer?
