Description

Black Velvet AD2 ADPAK from XLN Audio is a virtual drum kit that includes presets for creating everything from the cleanest alternative rock to the grittiest grunge drum tracks. Recorded in two different spaces, the drums were captured in a gymnasium-sized recording hall, while the hi-hat and cymbals were recorded in a smaller studio. By altering overhead/room levels (or loading different presets) it’s possible to easily transform the kit from “tight-and-fat” to “loud-and-large.” The changes can be automated to achieve different sounds between verse and chorus.

The kit is powered by the Addictive Drums 2 sound engine, allowing for instant loading and tweaking of drums, along with realistic performance playback, all with little CPU load. The musician-centric interface and effects provide endless possibilities for composition and sound design. Addictive Drums 2 supports most major e-drum companies like Roland, Yamaha, Alesis, and others and includes many map presets for e-drum models.
