Mention your name, band, Production company!
I am, sitting minding my own business and I get this message asking me
to checking something out. I rezz out this thing call “Bucket of
Drums”. So I unpack it to find something called “D3”. I
think to myself…”OK, I will check it out…oh boy, another set of drums!
So out of curiousity I sit on the this drum kit and it gives me a set
of sticks…no biggy huh? It then gives me a HUD…again no big
deal…so I wear the HUD. Now, your probably think like I did… “Who
cares more drums!”…right?
I start playing with the buttons on the HUD planning on messing with it
for just a few minutes. An Hour later I am still here playing
with the what seems like an endless array of mocap (motion capture)
animations…I can’t the the damned thing down. OD Designs (owned
by Ortho Vargas), I have said it many times in the past… and really
hate to repeat myself… but you never cease to amaze me at the level of
reality you add into your products and in Second Life
musicianship. First the H2X (guitar HUD, then the H2V (vocal
HUD), followed by the H2D (dance HUD),, and now we have this kick ass
drum HUD soon to be know all over the SL grid as the D3, drumkit and
HUD. Simply Just AweSome!!

Just in time! I
composed a 5 minute drum solo lead in to Satana's 'Smooth', synced it
with the new lights added lasers and hit the Center Stage of Burning
Man 2.0 as the closing act, Sunday night. What a lead in to my show,
the lights, the drums all synced perfect! People in the crowd were
sending me pictures exclaiming they had never seen anything like it
before.... AWESOME, THANKS OD!

D3 is the
most awsome drumset I ever have sat behind. I dont play in any
anymore but behind those.... i wish i did. Thx Ortho for giving
inspiration back to a guy who just loved to play and lost it.

old HM music.. gosh.
i like about the D3 is the realistic animations and the easiness of the
Hud they are well put together very excellent work Othro

wanted to say how much I'm enjoying the new OD3 Drums! I purchased the
Storm model and i gotta tell ya, the animations are surpurb. Its so
much fun even alone just listenning to the music and trying the
different animations on que. lol the Sexy and Air Guitar animations are
a total suprise and fun. I know you put a lot into getting this just
right and i can say I think its worth every penny. It would compliment
any band out there.. Thumbs-up man on a great job.

Ortho for these awesome drums. The HUD and the animations are the
absolutely best in the whole world. We love to playing the drums in all
of our concerts. We only work with your stuff (H2V, H2X) and it looks
sooo great and we have a lot of fun in every concert. Great work!!!!

manage/perform in several Rockshoppe tribute bands. One of which I am
the drummer so I know the role very well. It was never as fun as guitar
or a lead role. Well it is now with the new D3 drums. The animations
are awesome and fun to use. It's easy to combine them for a realistic
and energetic looking performance. Prims are always a concern and the
new drums use far less which was a welcome surprise. We are always
looking for ways to improve the quality of our shows. Your new drums
were an instant "must have". Thanks for all you do in helping sl rock!
love the new drums, the transtion between animations is smoother and I
love the new animation that lets me stand and drum. Also the new
spins and the variation of colors on the lights are much
appreciated. I would recommend these new drums with enthusiasm.

a stage builder's point of view, the smaller size of this drumset makes
it easier to fit on the stage. The D3 combines the compactness of
the Monster with the capacity of the Titan., making it easier to build
a stage to accomodate it. One does not have to push the drum set
so far back due to its bulk, and the lower prim count makes it
superior to any other drumset released in SL.

new world opens when using the new D3 Drums..the long waiting was all
worth..all complements to you Ortho and your team ;) I would
