    Decent for an engineer on a budget

    I bought this pack along with BFD eco back when it first came out, and the price was $99 for each of them. It was the first pack of cymbals added to my library. The best cymbals (imo) in this pack are the 14 inch Hat and the the Crash/Ride as they have a darker tone to them. The other cymbals are a tad too bright for my taste. They are pretty realistic sounding, except for the 13 inch Hat and the 20 inch ride which have a somewhat midi/digitally synthesized sound to them. These samples are pretty accurate to the sound of the real cymbals, and with enough processing can blend in and sound very real with your mix. Personally I would invest more money in a cymbal pack with more velocities and realness, but I am happy with how far these have gotten me for the price. (oh and they are close-miked sounding and don't respond to reverb plugins particularly well, but like i said tweak away you can make it happen for your mix.)
