I guess I am DR Fusion's biggest fan! I bought Jamstix 1 and then upgraded to 2.0, but I just can't seem to get the great natural drum sounds from Jamstix that I can from DR Fusion! For my needs DR Fusion is the best freeware drum sampler for natural sounding drums out there. I've used DR Fusion in virtually all of my music and I love the sound, and recieve many compliments on my drums tracks - so it fits my needs well. Oh sure, Jamstix and many other drum systems have so many more nice features and options, but the sounds possible with DR Fusion keep me coming back!

I don't actually think the supplied samples are all that great when taken as a whole, but with some careful selection, mixing, and tuning you CAN get there. The indiviual outputs can be a big help in processing too. For my tastes, it would be so much better if there were a couple more user sample slots in order to achieve 3 cymbals (crash, ride, pang, bell ride, etc.) and at least 2 wing toms and a floor tom. All the claps, s-drums, and such are a waste (although the second snare can be used to give greater depth to the available snare sounds in a track -as in making the second snare be a rim shot, soft snare, or EFX snare, etc.). More cymbal and tom slots would be my change request.

My main point is - this is a solid freeware meat and potatoes drum system for natural sounding drums (it can make electro type drum sounds too, but I rarely use those). I don't know why it doesn't get more praise and love for all it CAN do. I'd be lost without it. THANKS Odo/Marc!!!Read more
