I love how you can't choke the hihats, and these virtual drums have been around for quite a while so they should've fixed that...

Are you using an old version? That was fixed in the last release.

AWESOME, THEY DID FIXED IT! I've been all around forums saying the same thing and
you're the first to say something of value about it.

So, thanks mate!

Also bought other stuff (one by one so I got offered every time something cheap too,
found out they were doing that with WW drums so I started experimenting).

I ended up buying like 6 things, lol.

Cheers mate.

Yeah, I just bought Bass Grinder for $5

Looks like a few of the “48 hours only” deals they emailed to me several weeks ago are still valid, too.

Haven’t bought Westwood Drums yet, because I have enough drum VSTs already. But if the $5 offer stays for a while, I may break down and give it a go.

Mate, I have SSD5, Ultimate Komplete, AD2 Custom XL, still I wanted to buy this, I don't know why, I just did :P

And I don't think it sounds bad at all (not great but not bad) :P

If I'm not mistaken you can use the JSFX plugin "midi choke" with any of those drum vst. just place it at the top of the list and match the midi notes you want to choke.

Ya they fixed the broken chokes in Westwood v1.7, its their Druminator v1.7 that still has the weird hi-hat sample (auto closes after ~500ms).

I suppose I've spent $5 on worse stuff.

I guess if I bought Dominator I could use for sure Mcgiver69 tip :P

I just got Addictive Drums 2 and I feel (just feel right now) that I should
ditch Steven Slate Drums 5... and I have 2 expansions for it... lol

Yeah Druminator's Open HH is weirdly short. In 1.7 they did fix the Open> Close choking but not the Open> Pedal choking!
So in Westwood does the open HH ring on if you want it to, and do both the Close and Pedal choke the Open. Should I just buy a beer instead?

Yes the Open Hat stays open until I hit Pedal or Hat Closed, etc.

I don't know drum lingo, but on the westwood kit when you play a choke it hits the cymbal and then stops it, where as in some other kits (like Jay Mass free Drums) there is also a choke that sounds like you're putting your hand on an already ringing cymbal. Depends how much you like beer I suppose
