    TLDR: Free drum VSTi - see first link below.

    Hey y'all. Been a while since I've posted, the reasons for which I won't go into - I'll just put it this way: I got better...

    Anyway, I still do come here to lurk occasionally to see what's up but feel I don't have much I can add to the conversation.

    I happened to see this yesterday and thought some of you may find it of use since there aren't a whole lot of free drum VSTi's out there that are any where near on par with the commercial stuff and the blog I found it on isn't somewhere frequented a lot by guitarists.

    Here is the link to the site I discovered it on, be sure to watch the video to see if its something you can use:

    http://bedroomproducersblog.com/2014/10/20/mt-power-drum-kit-2-free/

    There is no installation program, there is a text file that explains how to install (simple).

    Please note that the download page that the blog links to has two links on it; one to download the ZIP with the DLL and docs and one for registration/activation. You'll have to activate the plugin the first time you use it or you will hear a voice saying "demo" in the background. The plugin shows an ID# for your computer and you go to the following page, put in that number and it will give you back an activation code number:

    http://www.powerdrumkit.com/activation-simpel/activate76187.php

    Included in the D/L are a quick start guide PDF (in English and German) and drum maps for Cubase and REAPER.

    Terms of use text file in the D/L state:
    So, just the standard liability stuff and nothing about restricted commercial use like some software. IE; you can use it to make and sell your own music legally.

    My take: It's kinda-sorta like a simplified cross between EzDrummer and Jamstix (if your familiar with those). Hell, I probably would have paid the $40 original asking price had I known about it. It works fine on my pathetic Pentium 4 3Ghz w/4gig RAM (3 available) Win XP sp3. Takes about 30 sec to load (so does EzD) but low CPU usage and no glitches (so far) so, it should work OK for the rest of you but YMMV. I guess it boils down to how well you like the kit's sound (only one kit available) - which is more towards Rock/Metal than Blues/Jazz but you can use the mixer to mellow things out some for those genres.

    Cheers.

    First, RedLesPaul introduced many to PreSonus Studio One Free:
    http://www.aguitarforum.com/threads/pondering-daw-upgrades.40093/

    Next, Breed came in with Auto Audio Mastering System:
    http://www.aguitarforum.com/threads/aams-mastering-program-is-free.40519/

    And now you come with this.
    Timely as all get out for me.
    I had thought EZ Drummer would be nice to have for some future recordings.
    With this that perceived need/want is filled just fine.
    I can use it with Cubase LE.

    Thank You Very Much!!!!!

    There are fewer and fewer reasons not to get some recordings done......

    This post will be here for a while.... can't edit after 24 hours.

    Seems to be a really cool tool that will benefit me a lot, as I can't play drums to save my life.

    I'm trying to run it in Reaper, but can't seem to get it out of the demo mode. When I open it, I don't see the window to enter the activation key. Did this happen with anyone else?

    I got to say...I was skeptical, but it's not bad at all. No apparent adware or anything, not even email harvesting! I like the snappy snare it has. I might start using it over Addictive drums just because it is simpler to work with. So anyway, I made a clip for you fellas to hear it vs Addictive Drums made by "one of us", down and dirty with almost no time getting used to it. This is my own beat I whipped up, not an included "groove". I'm sure it could be made to sound better, but here ya go!

    PS: that is my Ibanez ART90 with those EYGuitar Artec pickups I got recently and the new SX Ursa 3 Short Scale. Both are the exact same guitar and bass takes. Same volumes, effects, everything. The only changes was the Drum VST and I had to turn the volume slider down a bit on Addictive drum's track because it was quite a bit louder.



    EDIT: This guys demo is very cool.
