[size=11pt]Available now on our updates page - [b][url=https://www.tapspace.com/updates]VDL:2 Sound Library Version 1.5 Update[/url][/b][/size]

This is a free update of the instruments/multis for registered users of Virtual Drumline 2. This updater is primarily an efficiency “bug fix” release. In addition to the many fixes included in the instruments, there are a few new features that we’ve implemented that will give you more options such as:
[list]
[li]2 new “Rack Combo” instruments[/li]

[li]Fully sustained suspended cymbal rolls (with natural or muted release)[/li]

[li]Improved functionality when using in Kontakt 2[/li]

[li]Improved usage of default polyphony settings[/li]

[li]Muted glockenspiel control[/li]

[li]Many minor fixes to several instruments[/li]
[/list]

We thank you for your enduring patience with this long overdue release!
Just to clarify - you did download the update?  As long as you know where the file downloaded to you can manually direct it to find the files if needed...pm me if you need more..
I keep getting an error reading: "; The system cannot find the file specified";�� Am I doing someting wrong?
Thanks,

THANKS SIR!!!
The Concert Snare and field Drum map has 'snares off' for both instruments, there is the Full Concert Toms map, the Drum Set maps, the Roto Tom maps and the Rack A map has Concert Toms. Depending on the number of bass drums you'll be using you could set up a second bass drum staff, name it single tenor, and assign the top bass to this staff. There are plenty of methods to work around the issue other than recording and mapping a new instrument.

MMMMMMAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNN, I guess it's gonna have to be ok. Are there any other drums on there that can be substituted for it, we really need that drum. Oh yeah, are you having any type of competitions coming up like the parking lot one that you fellows had?

Apologies - the single marching (showband) tenor didn't make it into this update. It will be there in future updates though.
NEVER MIND THAT LAST PART OF MY QUESTION^

Great update. The rack combo B is really going to help.

I've already got ideas for VD3!

That's technically not an ";instrument"; per se. It's basically there as a way of identifying which library version you are currently using. Not a real elegant solution, but it works. You can certainly delete it, however in the rare case you need to troubleshoot something in the future, it's important to know which version of the library you are using.
Cool thanks,

Just out of curiousity, an instrument showed up in my dropdown list called Lib. version 1_5.

I know it isn't an actual instrument so is that instrument necessary? What is it and would it harm anything if a I deleted it or moved that fodler to another location?

Just to be safe before I install these updates, there won't be any playback effect on pieces that i have already started working on right? Basically the mapping didn't change, things were just added?

I know I won't be able to utilize the new sounds without using the new template though.

Thanks.

This is correct. Better safe than sorry, right? :) If your one to lean toward cautionary measures, you could make a copy of the ";Instruments"; and ";Multis"; folders in an alternate location in a folder called (original VDL2 library). That way they won't be overwritten. Or you know you can always just reinstall the original library from the VDL2 DVD, but this 1.5 library should be stable, and not affect anything you've done prior.
