I wanted to chime in here, especially for RBN authoring groups. Though I'm probably a minority, I've been playing pro-style drums now for almost 2 years. I understand why toms/cymbals were not charted properly as I've read the above posts. I'm not complaining at all.
I will state:
- I will not purchase any song that doesn't have pro drums charted.
- I would re-buy any of my previously purchased non-pro songs to get pro drums.
- I pretty much refuse to play any of my purchased non-pro charted songs. *sigh*
- I love RBN and the authoring groups. You guys rock.
Since RBN went live, probably about 95% of the songs I have purchased have been from RBN compared the normal music store. I would love to see songs get re-released with pro-drums.
This x1000. My non-pro drums RBN songs now only get played at parties (where my IONs w/ cymbals are hidden for the night anyway) and nowhere else.
I totally understand the how/why of it all, but it doesn't change the fact that standard drums aren't even half as fun.
