Default Acoustic or E kit? Can you tell?

A buddy of mine has numerous instruments including both acoustic and electronic kits. He was dinking around tonight and made this recording and he sent it to me asking me to guess which type he was playing. The playing is not impressive in the least just to warn you haha. But I'm curious how many of you can tell which type it is?

That's an E-kit, unless it is the most over-processed acoustic kit I've ever heard.

I had a hard time telling at first. As soon as I heard the first crash or two, I thought "it's either electric or acoustic with cheap cymbals"
but I feel like the toms really give it away

so I'll say electric

Yup, snare sounds exactly the same every time. Kick sounds mechanical and cymbals are lifeless. Unfortunately it's the same thing I hear every weekend on our dreaded eKit.

I'd say very obviously an E-Kit. Very processed sounding.

Clearly an E kit.

And, sounds far more pleasing to the ear than most of the turd acoustic house kits I'm forced to play.

electronic kit. I could tell the instant I heard the first crash. Cymbals and toms gave it away.

This is one of my recordings from 1996/97. See if you can guess what is being used on the drum track.

Drums start in around 0:17 if you want to skip intro.

EDIT: This one may have been given away by the simple act of posting. I don't want to take away from OP.

This is drum sounds sampled by a Forat F16 digital sampler, triggered with a Linn9000.

At the risk of making a prat of myself [in response to DrumWild's post, not the OP] : -

The hats sound a little processed to me.. It's either electronics (done well), or an acoustic with a lot of slightly delayed layered short ambient reverb on the snare (possibly on the toms too) and a fair bit of processing overall.

The cymbals have a short tail too. They don't seem to ring.

I'm going to say electronic.

The slightly processed cymbal sound can also be the result of mp3 style compression..

No life, depth or character. It's an e-kit.

E-Kit.

I know this is a direct plug-in, but I swear I can almost hear the sticks hitting the pads. :)

Kick and snare sound ok, but the toms and cymbals are a dead give away.

Either way, the playing's not bad, and it was fun to listen to! Thanks for posting it. These are always fun to figure out.

YOU'RE ALL WRONG!

Ha ha, just kidding. You guys all nailed it. It's an E kit. And I had to make up the story about a buddy sending it to me because I've already posted stuff about my new e kit....didn't want to give it away too quickly.

There's a guy that I met online that tweaks sounds for the Roland TD11 into different types of kits and that's one of the ones that I purchased. I thought it sounded quite a bit better than the original sounds but still could not fool any of you. Now if I would have played the Def Leppard snare? Haha

Thanks for playing!
