I have found that a collection of different drum VI's gives you a great selection of different drum sounds depending on the genre you are playing. The sounds included in SSD5 seem to be very good so far. I have not been able to go through all of them just yet but im very happy with the purchase. They will suit some rock and metal very well. SSD5 is a good purchase to get when its on sale.

Using SSD5 mainly with my E-Drums (Alesis Crimson II).

Sound quality is amazing and the articulations are great.

Overall it does great job and especially the mapping that match my E-Drum.

Here is an overview which is basically a tutorial.
