Introduction

With Addictive Drums you can personalize many details of your Drum Kit, from drum elements to effects etc... In this tutorial we'll be dealing with modifying the individual pieces of the drums kit. This way you can custom design and save your favorite kits.

Step 1

Once you've got Addictive drums loaded, and the interface is showing, you should first go to the top left and choose a kit. You can also choose a kit that has already been saved or load a recent kit.

Step 2

Once you've chosen your kit, you can then start customizing it by clicking on the 'Kit' tab which will show all the individual pieces of the the kit. You can listen to each of them by simply clicking on the individual pieces.

Step 3

Let's say you want to change the snare sound. You can either scroll through the different snare drums by using the up and down arrows (to the left of the snare), or you can click on the name of the snare and it will show you a list of the other snare drums.

Step 4

Once you choose the element you want (snare drum in this case) you can further personalize your element (snare) by going to the Edit section (click on the edit tab). Here you can modify things like Pitch, ADSR envelope. you can filter the sound, add distortion, saturation, compression and adjust EQ for each element.

Step 5

Effects can also be applied to each element separately. To do so click on the FX tab. In this section you can choose the reverb type and modify this reverb by changing the eq or the pre delay, reverb time and damping. You can then apply the chosen reverb to each element individually. Two different reverbs can be used together for each element.

Step 6

Once you design a kit to your liking, you can then save it by clicking on the kit name in the upper left corner and choosing save as....

Conclusion

So as you can see, the editing possibilities of this program are rather extensive. With a little bit of practice you can design drum kits that suit your needs.
