I've taken the plunge and have ordered a ZX.
I wanted to get the opinions of some of you out there who have played more or are more familiar with the electronica genres of music. I'm involved in the futurepop, synthpop, and EBM music scenes (some examples of similar-sounding bands would be VNV Nation, Assemblage 23, Apoptygma Berzerk, Neuroticfish, and Seabound).
I'll be playing my Zendrum primarily through a laptop with Battery 3 and Native Instruments Komplete, which from what I've seen has a great range of drum samples to use. However, I've seen enough laptop and hardware failures on stage and just before shows to know that a backup is ALWAYS advisable.
So, for those of you who know this style of music, what standalone drum modules would you recommend that have excellent realism and broad dynamic in their samples, that also offer some more electronic-sounding drum sounds?
Thanks for your advice on this!
