Drum fills are very quiet (apart from the snare.) I turned up my tv the first time I played it to hear them but got deafened by the back and forth-sound of the guitar intro in Grace.
When the PS3 finally gets the star patch, it will make the drum fills equally quiet as the Lego drum fills (like they were originally before a patch broke the velocity sensitivity.) I hate it and wish I could turn it off.
It might just have been a collective hallucination, but I'm pretty sure that it was said by somebody at some point. I'll see if I can find it.
Also, I agree that the drum fills (even on my 360) are notably quiet. Quieter than RB2 fills, definitely.
To force everyone to pay for the export would be fiscally irresponsible.
The drum fills are quieter in LRB, I agree.
As for the fee to export, it's just business. They could have tacked on 10 dollars to the disc price and made EVERYONE pay for it even if they weren't going to use it. Instead they've got it seperate for the people that see value in it.
If you don't see the value in it, by all means don't pay it.

I think the fee to export is an excellent idea, as is the code for it. So many people coming on board the RB2 wagon either rented or borrowed a copy of RB1 to get 55 songs for $5. The code with this game helps to prevent that from occurring. I'm guessing that $10 was the sweet spot for Harmonix on how much they could deduct from the cost of the game without risking loss in case people didn't utilize the export; otherwise, I think $15 or even $20 would have been a good idea.
Telling people online how wrong they are since 1990.
It may not have been Sean who said that. It might have been someone else. But, I could have sworn I remember reading something in regards to that more than a year ago.
I could be wrong though.

I think I figured out why the fills are quieter. It seems the drum noises during the fills are tied to the "sound effects" volume setting in the audio/video options. I normally turn these way down so that the music stands out, but in LRB this has the undesired effect of making my drum fills too quiet.
This is on the Wii btw, but I think it might be a cross-platform issue.
