So based on another thread I posted (and thanks to forumites here for their suggestions), I decided on using Toontracks EZDrummer, which is pretty cool so far. One thing, however, is that there doesn't seem to be any way to do a cymbal swell. I check some of the pdf's and even the Toontrack forums, but no real luck. Putting in something like a bunch of 32nd notes with a rise in volume gets the predictable result of each cymbal attack being audible instead of a smooth swell. Is there maybe a vst out there that can do this effect? Should I have settled on a different program?
