It is amazing what a steel band orchestra can do!

That sounds interesting. Doesn't Stormdrums 2 or RA have Steel Drums? I know Stormdrums 2 has a Hangdrum, which I'm not sure if that's the same.

There is a single steel drum - so sort of like only having a single instrument in the orchestra. It is fine if just needed for backing/atmosphere. I have looked in my non-EW world libraries and it is either not included or only a single drum is present.

Which one has the steel drum? I'm not sure if it's Stormdrums 2 or RA.

I actually just re-checked and could only find an EWQL steel drum in Goliath as part of the GM bank - so, not brilliant. The competitor's products are also not brilliant (at least the ones I have). Given that it is a major instrument in the Caribbean (and a part of the Parrothead sound as well) them it is an omission.

Funny thing is, I would have thought that it would be in RA, under "Americas And Australia". I have Tapspace Virtual Drumline, powered by Kontakt, and it seems to have some steel drums in there.
