« Great for Live Drum Sounds! »

Published on 08/16/12 at 18:43
XLN Audio Addictive Drums is a live drum emulator compatible with Macs and PCs in the AU, VST, and RTAS format. The installation was a largely painless affair, that took around 20 minutes total. In this ear of massive ROMplers, and even larger hard drives, the samples included with Addictive Drums are relatively miniscule, and come in well under 10 GBs. Just be sure to select a suitable location to store your samples.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Addictive Drums is a breeze to use in every DAW I've tried - and I use several. FL Studio, Ableton Live, Sonar, Logic, Studio One - Addictive Drums worked equally well with all of them. I particularly remind it Ableton, as the real-time tempo changes in Ableton really works well with the timing of some of the MIDI grooves that are included with Addictive Drums.

Speaking of the MIDI grooves, AD comes loaded with a ton of grooves in a few styles, and can be expanded with several add-on MIDI packs. Programming a drum groove in your DAW is a simple drag and drop affair, and can be done really quickly.

A feature that I haven't made use of yet, is its compatibility with pretty much every MIDI drum set imaginable. GREAT for live performance, or studio work for a producer who can afford a live drummer, but not an infinite variety of drums.

Also included are several options to modify the sounds of your drums. Hefty routing options, miking configurations, and effects allow you to really personalize your drum parts. There are insert effects for every channel, as well as send and master effects.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, Addictive Drums is my go-to live drums VSTI. If I want to incorporate a realistic, editable trap set in a production, this is the instrument I open reflexively. It provides hundreds of grooves, and can be expanded to include thousands more. Its easy to use, and easy on your system resources. And these days, extremely easy on your wallet!
