Here's a preset that combines C&V's Noble and Cooley kit with the ambience from Avatar Studios. It uses MIDI nodes to layer the x-drums from the Avatar kit onto the Noble and Cooley kit. Only the ambience mics are used from the Avatar kit pieces. I think this is what Peter Henderson did in his preset that he describes in the C&V video. See this post:
Posting here now C&V MKII is soon to be released.
I can't post the result of what I originally composed and produced. The MP3 below and the attached Project is the result of when I tried to re-create inside the S2 plugin only. The MIDI file in the archive is simply a part of me playing along to the Salem song I am referring to.
If nothing else it proves that the sounds can be shaped to a much more 'un-organic' sound than you'd think
I had a reason to get a drum sound like in Salem Al Fakir's song 'Roxy'.
After I had done it in Pro Tools my curiosity got the better of me and I tried the best I could to create it inside S2. Granted, it doesn't sound the same and I can't use the same trix as with pitching down audio files and Reverbs but I think I got pretty close.
It is a very processed and pretty 'fat' sound, not at all like the more organic sound I normally go for with C & V.
I made an MP3 of the S2 Project here: http://www.soundfactory.se/aud.....Roxy_3.mp3 with just a touch of Studio A Reverb.
The Project file is attached with an accompanying MIDI file. It has a Rev Send to out 3/4.
It would be interesting to know if it 'works' for someone else...or if you think I have gone barking...
I wanted to share a kit I made - It's a Bonham kit which I think turned out pretty good
I spent weeks tweaking, comparing to his sound etc....
Hope you like it 🙂
This is the S20 file
It's base is using the Metal Foundry SDX.
The x-drums added are from: Evil Drums, Custom & Vintage SDX & just one cymbal using the old Vintage Rock EZX so again, that can always be replaced with something else.
Enjoy & feel free to tweak if you like of course.

Thought it'd be fun to try to copy the drum sound on "Sad But True" from Metallica's Black Album with SD2. Here's a 1:00 demo I did of it, first with guitars/bass, then without. I mixed the guitars a little low on purpose, and there are no 3rd party plugs on these drums, except for a tiny bit of limiting on the whole mix to prevent a few clips. It's not a loud mix... didn't want to skew the preset with too much 3rd party limiting. The guitars and bass were recorded direct with Waves GTR Solo. Also, the ambient mics are kind of in a happy medium... the guitars sucked up a lot of ambient decay, but then I wanted the kit to be fun to play solo, but not be swimming in ambient mics. The ambients could be a little louder in hindsight on the guitar mix.
Then just the drums...
I may go back to it and try to get the cymbals/hats to "burn" a little more in the highs... it'd be easiest to just have cyms/drums in separate kits, but I wanted to share this and that'd be a pain in the ass!
Here's the SD2 preset if you want it... http://scotthaskitt.com/SAD_BUT_TRUE.s20
I went a little overboard with x-drums because it was REALLY hard to reproduce the room decay on the snare!! But in the end if I muted one, the tone thinned out too much for me. I guess the bummer is, it's not that easy to share, because not everyone goes bananas and buys every SD2 pack out there!
This kit loads with all the layer limits at 4-6, but the demo was bounced with them slammed to 99.
Metal Foundry (whole kit - mostly close mics on drums)
Allaire (tom ambients, snare ambients and close mics)
Hit Factory (snare ambients)
Evil Drums (snare ambs and close)
Nashville (snare ambs and close)
