Thanks for your kind words, however you are passing on some incorrect information.
Processing?: The sounds have some EQ, and there is a compressed room channel (Helios F760 compressor).
Seventies equipment?: The sample set isn't aimed at a '70's Sound', and therefore high-end equipment from all decades was used, in fact high-end equipment that's highly regarded today
The drums were recorded in a small room, which you could link back to a 70's mood, however the main aim was to offer great sounding drums (from no particular time frame) that contrasted the overwhelming presence of bombastic ambient drums in the virtual drum market.
For sketching out drum parts quickly i would probably recommend EZdrummer (and it's expansion packs).
