Drums are the heartbeat of your music. They are the foundation of your melody and lyrics, so it's critical to get them sounding just right. That's what Addictive Drums has been doing for musicians since its inception. Providing thousands of users with extraordinary drum sounds, driving rhythms, and professional sound shaping tools that inspire musical dreams and turn them into reality. The Addictive Drums 2 engine is a welcome upgrade to the original version with tons of new beat creation tools, professionally designed presets, lightning-fast workflow, and more. To get you started, this package includes Addictive Drums 2 along with XLN Audio's most popular Fairfax Vol. 1, Fairfax Vol. 2, and Black Velvet drum kits as well as over 5000 MIDI beats, so you’ll have everything you need to create your best work yet.
Magnificent Drums, Perfectly Recorded
Addictive Drums 2 comes standard with three extraordinary drum kits including both of the acclaimed Fairfax kits (recorded at the legendary Los Angeles studio formerly known as Sound City) and the loud, large, and luxurious Black Velvet! The package includes 130 presets ranging from super-clean to highly polished and radio-ready to heavily processed and distorted. You also get the Core MIDI Library containing over 5000 inspiring beats and grooves covering many styles. You can use them as-is or easily tweak them to make them uniquely yours.
It's All About Sound
Tweak any of the professionally designed presets or build up a custom kit from scratch; it's your choice. Addictive Drums 2 is packed with mixing and sound-shaping features that let you transform the raw sounds in amazing ways. Whether you need your drums to sound open and crystal-clear, or produced and radio-ready, or grungy and heavily distorted, AD2 has studio-grade tools to get the job done. There are dozens of individual features including professional presets, build your own kit, endless sound shaping, and more!
The best sounds and features are useless if you can't find and use them quickly when inspiration strikes. Addictive Drums 2 really excels in this area. Every detail – from drag-and-drop audio and MIDI, to rapid linking and layering, to near-instant kit-piece swapping–is designed to keep you in the creative zone.
