    General Midi drumset for Kontakt: Any reccommendations?

    I´m looking for a good GM drumset for use with Kontakt 2. I´m especially looking for good sounding percussion sounds. Any reccomendations out there?
    Thanks for your help

    For general MIDI you'd want something like Studio B (http://www.beladmedia.com/studiob.htm)
    But this is a drumkit, not necessarily a percussion set.

    Most of the larger kits available are not general MIDI.

    Thanks for the hint. Any other ideas out there?

    Even though it is not known for its drum kits, StormDrum has some very good GM drum kits. They are basic: just the bass drum, high hats, cymbals, tom toms, and snare. There are a lot of extra rim shots that can be loaded onto other tracks. No cowbells and other stuff spread across the keyboard, but the rest of Stormdrum has a lot of percussion. The cymbals sound great. No brush kits.

    The StormDrum GM kits may work best for rock and fusion, but I have used them in a jazz piece. You can here a StormDrum GM kit in this piece.

    I use 'Studio Drums' from Native Instruments (see http://www.native-instruments.com/in...studiodrums_us).

    It's inexpensive (about $99), has some good sounding drum sets, is GM
    compatible and being from NI it's supposed to work well with Kontakt.

    Battery 2, Bandstand and even Kontakt 2 all include a full featured GM1 drumset. Bandstand even includes 9 different GM2 drumkits.

    Best,
    Martin
