Thanks!
The drums and the cymbals had such a beautiful sound, I tried to sample them all as well as I could.
Drums were Gretsch New Classic Mapple Kick and Toms, Yamaha Recording Custom Snare, Vintage Zildjian Avedis Hats, and two handmade Istanbul Agop crash/rides. Such a lovely kit!

Will there be a brushed version of this exact library as well?

Exquisite samples! I bought the cymbal rolls a few years ago and love it. I am a a sucker for drums and these are incredibly competent for the genre. I will be buying these shortly!

There's no brushed version planned. Though it's a bit of a different concept, the library KICK N' BRUSH is also really nice for brushes. It has built-in grooves and a full brush kit in the latest update.
You can find it on the same page:

Ok thanks. I was hoping you sampled this exact kit with brushes on the same session to release at a later date. This kit sounds really good and it’s a shame more types of beaters weren’t used.

The sound is great and this possibility for midi variation with modwheel-control is brilliant!
Brushed version of this kit would be nice!

Thanks! The modwheel control works really well, it really brings these grooves to life and is tons of fun.
I'm currently thinking about updating Kick n' Brush with such functions.

It sounds great.

Have you tried playing the samples with an electronic kit? Important are the HiHats, for example. Are they mapped to produce a natural response?

Thanks!!
Haven't tried it with edrums yet. It was mostly developed with and for keyboards and pad controllers.
The Hihat has one main 'closed' articulation with 19 velocity layers (they go from fully closed to slightly open for more realism) and one extra 'loose' articulation with 23 velocity layers. Plus the 'foot' and 'open' articulations.

Round robin is entirely done via scripting, no extra RR samples. Works very well in this context, and as long as you use various velocities for grooves and rolls, results are very natural and realistic
