Drum recording is really an art form. You must record a live drumset a few times and work your way with a VST one to get it right. Try using DFH Custom as a starting point. It has allready programmed grooves neatly packed in libraries. You must then program your drums on sepparate channels in a project. Be sure to use a humanise option as it creates little subtle differences in rhythm making your set more alive- like. ALso program the velocity well and un-evenly. But do it carefully - do not overdo it. DFH Custom has a bleeding option for every channel i think. You must use some bleeding or your drumms will surely sound too generic. After the pregramming procces (which is acctualy a process of making a sintetic set sound like a live recorded set) comes the process of producing it. This is a whole another story and not a subject, but if you wanna know post and i`ll try to explain it the best way i can. Hope this helps smile.gif
