Metal Foundry SDX
John408, 10.08.2013
Handling & Features:
Supplied on numerous DVDs so no downloading required immediately. Get the patches afterwards though for smoothest operation with your computer.
This is an addon pack for Superior Drummer 2.0. That software caters for all types of genres and for about any sound you could want. Can be a bit daunting at first, but you get the hang of it quickly.

Sound & Quality:
This has that big metal sound that you want in your productions. Since 99% of metal songs nowadays are all samples anyways, you can use this with an electronic drumkit or with a real kits triggers to capture the midi performance and to use it to trigger these samples.
They sound incredible out of the box and with further tweaking on your end they can sound just how you want.
In-your-face, larger-than-life, stadium-rockers.....all metal type sounds are catered for. To my ears, its the best metal kit out there that you can get.

Computer Utilisation:
Like all Superior Drummer 2.0 kits, it loads samples into RAM so 4Gb minimum is recommended. Works seemlessly with OSX and Logic 9, Pro Tools 10 and Cubase 6.5. Ive never had an issue with it. Requires Superior Drummer 2.0 to work, this is not a standalone product.


Conclusion:
This is an amazing piece of software. Easily the best tool out there for real sounding and proper metal kits. Toontrack are all metallers anyways (or so they seem to be from their videos) so its no surprise that when it comes to metal, there is no way in hell that they are going to drop the ball on this one....and they certainly dont! I am delighted with this purchase. Highly recommend this for all metallers and producers out there.

Vast Library of Metal Samples
Paparey, 29.06.2017
This SDX expansion was on offer, and at the offer price was a true bargain.

The Metal Foundry SDX provides a giant library of expertly recorded drum samples which sit really well in a mix in place of live drums. You can even download the library direct from Toontrack and activate with the provided product activation code if you don't fancy using the discs provided.

The installation process was very straight forward, and once up and running the samples were instantly available within my instance of Superior Drummer 2.

Regardless of what sort of metal genre you may be producing, the chances are that somewhere in this SDX you will find a great selection that suits your chosen style and you can then manipulate it to your heart's content.

In summary - a great value collection of excellent quality samples, suitable for everything from heavy rock to all out extreme metal.

Sounds so good!
06.11.2014
These sounds are on so many metal recordings nowadays, and with good reason!

If you are going for that Gene Hoglan sound that you'll hear on so many Dethklok/Devin Townsend/SYL recordings, you'll need look no farther! In fact, most modern metal sounds can be dialed into this as easily as clicking the "Metal Foundry Mix" preset in SD2.

As the following was a concern to me when I was considering buying this, I thought I would make this clear for potential buyers:

If you are going for the more organic metal sounds of, say, any sludge/doom/drone bands like Mastodon or Baroness, etc, then the stock sounds in SD2 will very much suffice. This isn't a criticism of the product but a clarification. The hardest part of getting it sounding organic is not editing the sounds but actually writing the patterns (look at some drum lessons for a reference).

I am very happy with this product, the sounds have been sampled meticulously, and the variety of sounds and kits make this pack a serious bargain!

I recommend that any home producer of metal get SD and this expansion.
