    Darrell’s drum samples are just about the finest I’ve ever used! He’s recorded them with incredible detail. Every nuance really speaks in these samples. Wonderful sonics, air and space in all of them! The punch and presence on everything is astounding! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

    I gotta tell you that these samples sound fantastic!!! When I pulled them up in a session and went through them - I was extremely pleased at the quality! Man, there are so many snare samples that I can use. I think these are the best sounding samples that I have! I really appreciate you making them available and the price is very fair!

    Darrell is actually the best drummer I have ever worked with. (And I worked with quite a few in the last 20 years.) Darrell is highly skilled, very committed, easy to work with and, last but not least, such an awesome person. I will be back for more projects with him soon.

    When I have two different genres that I'm mixing that need to be done now, I know without a doubt, I can pull up Darrell's drum pack and feel at ease that I will get the right sound I'm looking for with superior sound quality. I love the flexibility I get with this pack. Thanks Darrell for helping my mixes go smoothly.

    My favorite thing about the Darrell Nutt Signature Drum Pack is that they sound like real drums - but better! As a producer that's mostly using real world sounds, nothing is more frustrating for me than when I pull up samples that are too processed and won't be able to easily blend in the song. These drums sound great, are easy to use, and fit an important missing spot in my sound arsenal.

    We're so glad Darrell accepted to record the drums for our new song. We had some pretty intricate funk-ish/rock MIDI drums that we manually tweaked for hours and we needed the human touch and groove on it. Darrell learned it, added his magic, respected all our extensive instructions and the result is simply amazing. He was spot on in just one pass!

    After pouring through tons of drummers on the Soundbetter site and others, I chose Darrell. Trust these reviews and ratings - he earned every star. His parts were perfect for my project which had a wide variety of styles.

    Darrell is a hell of a player and a hell of a nice guy! He uses top notch gear, delivers an amazing performance and gives you so many separate tracks that you can really hone in and get the exact drum sound you want for your song! Highly recommend!

    Darrell Nutt saved my life. My first recording project had not been going in the direction I wanted it to. After hearing what Darrell could do with my unfinished material, I was sold on being his client from that point forward. He brilliantly mixed, mastered, and managed the release of my EP, Here I Am. Without him, I wouldn't have ended up with a product anywhere near as professional. Since then, we have recorded numerous songs together and plan for a full-length release soon. He has played an integral part of my music career!

    ​Darrell and his team have produced two promotional videos for our band, affording us the opportunity to effectively compete in major markets from New York to Miami. Our collaboration with Darrell yielded a great depiction of the unique product we offer. He captured the essence of our performance and we have a full calendar as a result!

    Darrell Nutt and Def Media are incredible. Often recording and shooting video can be stressful, but Darrell and his team made the experience fun and easy. They worked around our schedule and produced a top-quality product. We could not be more pleased with the results. Thanks, Def Media!

    Darrell is a badass drummer !!! He is so accurate with his stick placement which of course creates great sound. He can play the tightest groove to a huge Rock song with ease. If you want "the machine" for your session, he’s the Man!!!

    Darrell brought to my composition a new breath, a very good new energy. He worked very fast and was able to really create what I was looking for. I recommend this great drummer to anyone who seeks technical and artistic quality. It is without doubt a great professional. I'm sure I'll work with him on the next projects.

    Purchased all three of Darrell's Expansions for Trigger 2. I already have CLA and Blackbird Studio, which are good, but Darrell's are by far the best I’ve tried. Great sound, great variety and totally worth the price. Thanks Darrell ! Keep’em coming!
