    Just out of curiosity, what are the benefits of using a midi keyboard? Can you edit with it in say...Pro Tools?

    I think its because I opened it as an AU instead of VST.

    Another question: In Reaper when you open SD it asks if you want to create separate tracks for all the different outs, or just have everything go to one track. What difference does this make in terms of sound?

    Couple things.......
    Superior Presets only work with there designated library. exp: Bulb=avatar, sneap=MF, allen morgen=music city

    2nd;you must update your Superior drummer to 2.2.3 which is available in your toontrack account under your products, Superior Drummer 2.0

    Remember presets dont just show up when you load the kit. You have to make sure you click the load/save tab and select combined presets.

    If you continue to have problems or have new one's please feel free to PM me or for a faster result email support@toontrack.com

    Some people like Chimp Spanner use a MIDI keyboard for all their drum tracking. Other people (the majority) just use the piano roll, (or if you're using Cubase, the drum tracking page) and click all the notes on. You have to have some rudimentary knowledge of beats or else your drum track creation will be a long time in the making.

    Hello,

    I'm a huge noob with superior drummer and am still learning the basics of the program.

    I recently downloaded the Bulb S2.0 presets from Toontrack (*cough strictly to support Misha and the band... *cough :lol:), and simply cannot find out how to load them up..

    I installed them, and the installer even noted how it scans to put them in the correct directory.. booted S2.0 up through my DAW and in Toontrack Solo separate times and could not find out how to use them.... All of the places I saw for "presets" just had all of the stock ones (i think), but nothing indicative of 'bulb' presets.

    Any help from people more experienced than I is appreciated :bowdown:

    EDIT

    Thanks to whoever moved this post here. I used the search function before posting but kind of failed at it I guess. Sorry to clutter the forum

    I've got Evil Drums SDX but I can't figure out how to blend it with Avatar? I've searched all over for an answer.

    Could you elaborate at all?

    What I mean is I want to have the full kit from Avatar, but select samples from the Evil Drums library.

    Any one mix and match kits with SD. For example I find myself using a full kit, (example) lets just say the Bully kit from the metal section. I use the whole kit, then I will open a second track, and use (example) the indie kit, from the SD presets, but i will mute the cymbals metal kit, then blend the snares, toms, and bass drum from both kits. I have had the best experience with this. It sound amazing by itself. My only concern is once I add bass, guitar, etc, could I be losing any area for mixing, more so do I stand a chance of mudding up my entire mix?

    So I also downloaded the bulb presets....can't find them at all in combined presets. I'm running a fully updated version of SD 2.0. Anyone out there fix this same issue? Anything I'm overlooking? I installed the preset properly....

    Can you use Drum Superior in Logic 9 by plugging in 8th notes, 16th notes, and etc with the snares, bass drum, toms, and etc?

    Sense make no?

    To answer this yeah you can pretty much write in midi notes to trigger each sample. And 100% sure you can do this in Logic
