weren't these released last year?  I think Mike Greene has a NAMM pricing sale on them right now, not sure.
 
don't think these are new though.  they do sound good, I didn't pick them up because I have so many drum samples that I could not justify it or the cost.

Same here... is the density/complexity of the drums control automatable?  
 
I love all that Mike does but my budget is saturated at the moment... and the too many drums thing...
 
I'll pay for more vowels/consonants in Blue though!  It's the closest thing to effective word building yet but still not there.  And I know those recording sessions with da ladies aren't cheap!

If it would make my bed and drive me to/from work I'd gladly pay $199 for this drum package.

I like what they are doing with the groove generator and complexity sliders but 199, the sale price no less , is just too much considering everything else out there. I have sworn off buying any more Kontakt drums since like most here I use BFD, AD, SD, EZ Drummer, Jamstix, Groove Agent 4 and SSD.

Hmm, I have used SD and EZD for years and like it. But I am intrigued by the idea of not having to browse through millions of loops, and then edit what I pick because I prefer a different cymbal, etc. I haven't watched the video yet, but I'm tempted by the concept, at least, because I spend more #)($*@& time finding the groove I want than anything else, and I hate having to audition everything over and over. Big time-waster. 
 
But we'll see. I do a lot of jazz, and most of these libraries concentrate on rock n roll. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

Well, I've watched the video, and I like a lot of what I see However, I cannot find anywhere (manual or video) how you would generate fills, etc, although the "complexity" sliders and kit pieces selections could probably do some of it, perhaps, like isolating a snare doing a highly complex beat. But then again, it's not really a "fill," and the video did not spend enough time showing the various grooves. $199 is a lot to pay, money back guarantee or not, to find that you cannot do everything you want with this software that you can do with it's competitors, no matter how much easier it seems to be to work with.
I cannot see any links to email the company and ask this question, either, but I will keep trying.

Re: Realitone release realidrums 2017/03/14 19:51:24 (permalink)
As a recent buyer of Realidrums 2.1, I have to caution potential buyers about certain bugs or limitations not addressed in the video or user guide.  There are several options that do not work as intended, including the "drag to MIDI" full session option. (It only produces a few bars of the session you played, not the entire thing).   The fills feature (adjustable from 1 to 4 beats), will always play 4 beats when playing along with a pattern.
I wish they would have offered a trial version.  But the good news is that you can ask for a refund before 30 days.

It claims that it takes the tedious work of selecting too many drum patterns from other virtual drummers, but in fact, you still have to browse through a limited amount of available drum patterns and fills just like any other virtual drum software.
The sounds are pretty good, not as good as Superior Drummer or EZDrummer, but convincing enough.
IMHO, if you already own one of those Toontrack drummers, you should stick with what you have.  Toontrack has a much better larger group of available expansion packs (both for drums and patterns), compared to none from Realidrums.

But the biggest drawback for me is that you don't have the drum patterns laid out in verse, prechorus, chorus, bridge, for each pattern like you do with other drums.  And trying to create your own verse or chorus parts, are limited by the amount of MIDI information available when you drag and drop into your DAW.  The more MIDI information in your pattern, the less MIDI data gets transferred to your DAW track.   So if you play a 20 bar verse, with lots of fills, only 8 or 9 bars will actually get transferred over from your session.

Did you check Realitone Ladies, V-man? Lots of possibilities there.
