XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2 on sale
Addictive Drums 2 by XLN Audio is one of the most popular virtual drum kits for your DAW. Depending on which style of music you produce, you can choose from various bundles, which include selections of the developer’s ADpaks, MIDIpaks and Kitpiece Paks. This way, it’s easy to customize Addictive Drums 2 to your needs.
The drum kit itself is highly tweakable and allows you to edit each individual kit piece in great detail. You can choose from a wide variety of drums, cymbals and percussion instruments and use envelopes, compressor/limiter, EQ and tape simulation to get the sound you want. The mixer makes you feel like you’re working on a big console with a stack of channels from individual mics. In addition to the instrument channels, the mixer lets you adjust the overhead and room microphones and add effects to the overall drum bus. Effects like delay and reverb are also included.
Addictive Drums 2 also includes a large selection of MIDI grooves in a wide variety of styles. You can arrange and edit the grooves on the Beats page and drag&drop them to your DAW tracks. That’s one of the easiest ways to achieve a realistic drum groove without recording an actual drum kit.
