Lifetime free patch/version upgrades for all your synths and the DAW itself.

I don't think I got across what I was trying to say. What I mean is that the timbre of, for example, the snare or the kick drum can change slightly depending where on the head it's hit. There's a function built into EZ Drummer where it can do the same thing - ToonTrack took multiple samples of each drum so that you can hear minor (if you listen) details and slight differences on each hit, if you enable that function.

Session drummer and the Roland TTS are OK, but EZ Drummer by itself is awesome, and if DFH is as professional as it sounds, it'll be an awesome add-on.
