- Sampled loops or instruments?

No loops. Real drum kits samples


- Do the samples/instruments sound authentic? How is the sound quality?

Good quality sound, the outcome will be good if you use them properly. But it doesn't quite compare to the sound quality of specialized tools like FXpansion BFD, Toontrack EZDrummer or Superior 2.

- What about the variety of sound samples?

The sound banks offer lots of variety. You get several presets. Some of them were created by famous producers like Questluv from the Roots and many others. Well-designed and versatile tool.

- Does it fit your music style?

I only use Reason Drum Kits 2.0 with Reason for pre-production. Usually when I travel by train with my laptop. If you're clever you can make it sound good enough for the sort of music I make (old-school rare groove). However, it's difficult to use this product in a professional production.


- How long have you been using it?

Over two years.

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?

Pros: Authentic sound and perfect integration in Reason.

Cons: less professional than specialized products like BFD2 or Superior 2.0.

- How would you rate its value for money?

Reasonable if you work with Reason.

- Compared with other products?

I don't use it that often, only for pre-production when I'm traveling and have to work with Reason on my laptop. Not good enough for a professional production.

As a summary: it's a lot of fun if you use it with Reason, but it's not good enough for a professional production.
