How many of you are using S2.0 drums for major projects

Without a real drum kit. These are libraries are getting sick at how great they sound. I got the high end Roland Vdrums in January and I just cannot see how you can get better results than with that kit and all the best drum libraries like Superior, Strike, SSD, etc.

I do, more and more often.

If you have the sound clear in your head, you *will* get it with Superior, i don't know about the others never tried 'em.

It happens. Mostly when a song takes a different turn production-wise than was initially intended. Also if you're chasing a certain sound and simply just don't have the time or the resources to try different drums/tunings in different rooms/miking to achieve a certain sound suitable for that particular song. So, it can be a life saver, but mostly as a last resort thing.
Sometimes I've also just complemented an already recorded drum kit with say, a certain ride cymbal for a specific part of a song, in the event of the song needing that other flavour.

I agree 100%. Unless you have a great drummer, playing a nice kit, in a great sounding room, recorded with nice mics and outboard, why bother?

I think you're going to see a lot of great sounding albums recorded in home studios because of Superior and the other great drum programs. Drums were the major reason why you "had" to record in a commercial studio. Now with Superior, that's no longer the case. Just my opinion.
