3 Drummer Superior Bhest verry.
We 'the leaders' bring you the ultimate paradigm shift. Dramatization: No paradigms were actually shifted in the making of this statement. Furthermore, any reference to paradigms is for entertainment purposes only.

BFD3 without a second thought.

I have EZDrummer 2, Superior Drummer 2, Superior Drummer 3, Addictive Drums 1 and 2, Strike, BFD/BFD2/BFD3, SSD4 (will never upgrade to 5) and some other stuff like Xfer Nerve etc, apart from the fooling around with the odd 'electronic' type stuff, the only one I ever use is BFD3, IMO it's still at the top of the heap, certainly as far as sound goes, you can't yet beat it. I look forward to the day when something surpasses it in sound terms, will be a great day.

BFD3 because of toms resonance modeling and cymbal swell modeling; the former means quite a lot in terms of realistic bleed, in addition to response and the latter means a lot through itself, and cuts down on the time spent trying to fake your way out of the lack of it. And this includes the other thing (SD iirc) which is supposed to have a cymbal swell feature, which is just managing attacks.

The Oberheim DMX is a sample based drum machine. Just as the Linn.

If you're interested in the DMX sounds check out Audio Lounge's AL D1. It's a Oberheim DMX rompler.
Their Rhodes sounds great, too :)
