    Excellent sound

    This expansion is on my top two list (metal foundry being the other). This kit sounds excellent, triggers well from my v drums, Zendrum, or MIDI keyboard. I love playing this kit on my Zendrum the most. The black beauty snare is worth the price of admission alone- it really is the only snare I am using for any of the expansions (love Xdrums in SD2!) I was hesitant if getting it because I already have the Nashville EZX- and I have to admitt they are very close in sound (making Nashville an unbelievable value for an EZX, especially if you catch it on sale). The added articulations in music city though are quite helpful for a realistic sound. I would recommend this for many applications- rock, country, great for Jazz! Amazingly versatile pack.

    Love this software!

    I love the producer presets that are already integrated into this SDX. The "tighter" kit sounds amazing and I like the grooves that come with it.

    Usable

    Only one pair of hi hats is the only reason I gave this kit 4 stars. Glad I have a few more kits to choose a pair from. The snares are nice and the roominess of the kits as a whole are great

    Music City USA SDX

    The layout and overall sound of this SDX are Mix Ready! Music City fills a VERY useful niche in production work and has become an invaluable tool. The midi grooves are also very useful for getting a quick start on a musical idea. Highly recommend!

    Great, But Needs to be Fixed.

    I purchased this expansion the month it came out (about 2 years ago now). While I Love most things about this expansion, the toms with the brushes are inconsistent and loose with the triggering.

    The month it came out, I noticed the problem and sent the problem to Toontrack. They confirmed the problem but said there were no immediate plans to fix it. (they gave me a courtesy MIDI pack due to the problem) Now, 2 years later, the problem is still not fixed. In fact, they are still on 1.0.0. I contacted them again and they again have said:

    "We will forward the information to our programmers, however we cannot guarantee of a timely response at this point. Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused."

    This is so disappointing in that it basically renders any toms with brushes worthless. :-(

    Sounds overall in this kit are great, although they need more processing than the standard Superior Drummer samples which really are ready right out of the box. But this kit has a very organic feel to it. I'm not that big of a fan of the hi-hat they recorded with the kit. Unfortunately, you only have one option. The hi-hat is a little too thin and light for my taste. Nevertheless, I still use it.
