    My top tip for good superior sounds; don't use superior FX, processing or EQ. I can tire over Superior settings for days, weeks even, and come out with shitty sounds. An hour in Logic and I get something that sounds fresh and vaguely 'real', thought I think real comes more from the programming than the sound.

    All that comes out of superior for me are raw sample, Logic does everything else.

    I agree...I think it is much easier to mold your sounds outside of Superior.

    To make things even easier load up the metalmachine EZX and your almost there to begin with.

    Forget the drums! That first lead was awesome. Dat phrasing. Familiar, yet very different.

    Slate Digital Trigger + Seraph Recordings samples + Metal Foundry is what I use and couldnt be happier.

    Peter's samples are the best ever.

    You do realize that you can make the default Superior drums sound almost like anything if you are smart enough to blend drums together and use pitch shifting, right? You'd be amazed how much layering a piccolo snare can make it cut through, for instance, or how much a change of 2-5 cents will make your kick sit better. The only time I like to replace drums is using Steven Slate for the kicks, those samples are pretty great and take processing extremely well.
