Hi, dear friend.

Aerodrums is a drum sampler and midi trigger, the sound it produces depends on the samples that you load into it. It has very nice build-in multilayered samples of accoustic drum set (by default), and you can load your own samples of any drum kit as you wish (but samples must be always .wav files of 44,100 sample rate).

Also Aerodrums can sent MIDI commands to virtual instruments like VST instruments that you load into your DAW.

So you can reproduce exact Roger taylor Drum kit 1986(Magic tour)Yamaha 9000 with Aerodrums if you have either wav samples of this drum kit, or use virtual instrument with these samples loaded and sent to virtual instrument midi notes that Aerodrums will generate.

This is my own advise, as I am not affilated with Aerodrums creators.

Aerodrums comes with a selection of bass drums, snares, toms, cymbals, etc. that you can use to recreate the Roger Taylor kit. But as johnnyM1984 pointed out, if you want more authentic sounds then you will need to source them from elsewhere and plug them into Aerodrums.

In terms of laying out the pieces of your kit to match the Roger Taylor kit, you will be able to do this in Aerodrums by creating a custom drum kit, choosing which pieces you want in your kit and then positioning them individually.

Hope that helps, let us know if you have any other questions.

Although Aerodrums uses a camera with a wide angle lens, the space within which it is able to accurately track your drum stick motion is limited. The only pieces that you may have a problem with are the second floor tom and the far china cymbal to the right of the drummer. By bringing these pieces forward a bit and closer to the drummer you should be able to make them work ok.
