Realistic Drum Sound

Being a hobbyist and semi professional guitar and bass player, I always wanted to record my own album. With the advent of the digital age this became possible, since I could never afford to go to a regular studio or higher a drummer. At first I was using just some freeware drum software, but on mix down the drums just didn't have that real miked kit sound. So, I had to get some better drum software. I decided to get BFD eco based on a few reviews I had read. It's not as plug and play as some of the other software out there, but it was definitely the way to go. I knew I had made the right decision when I was driving to a job site, for my day job, with a coworker who has been a gigging drummer for years. While I was previewing the latest mix down of a few songs, he asked me is that a real drummer playing. I said what do you think and he replied it sounds like a real drummer to him and who is it. I then knew I had made the right decision in my software choice. If you're looking for realistic drums for recording, this is the software to get.
