I'm not sure why this doesn't happen more often, rather than just take a dummer's signature sound, taking the actual sound of a kit from the classic band or album. Steven Slate has spotted the gap and released Signature Drumkits which is now at version 3.0. Steven's website claims that "classic kits from the last 40 years have been authentically modeled for you". Steven started out working behind the scenes in Hollywood creating custom drum sounds for various producers and so this lead him to release his own sample instruments. The website is worth checking out, there's a ton of examples and they do actually sound pretty good. Available now in Platinum (40 Kits) $329 or LE (20kits) $199.

Pretty useless video. I can't tell if these samples are any good. Why not ALWAYS hook up a line-audio feed into the camera equipment???

The samples sounded artificial, like there arent enough velocity layers sampled. It would help if the drummer would player DYNAMICALLY so you could hear how the samples sound at all velocities. Pretty useless video I agree.
