During black friday we could get Metal Machines EZX extension for Toontrack’s EZDrummer and Superior Drummer for EUR 29. This library of only 850 MB installed size (and 300 MB used memory, instant loading from SSD) provides great snares and outstanding toms, plus nice kick and crash cymbal (ride cymbals however aren’t good and have to be replaced by other libraries).

Comparing with Superior Drummer’s stock drum set (20 GB), Native Instrument”s Studio Drummer, Best Service Artist Drums and other libraries, Metal Machines really stands out and is the most efficient and best sounding (also best convincing) drums library (either while playing – great response – or triggering built in patterns). Also Toontrack engine (EZX libraries work great in Superior Drummer) allows very low CPU load (while Kontakt would stall quickly) and adds this proprietary real time human feeling.
