Addictive Drums Metal ADpak
by Jon M. fromExcellent addition to the Addictive Drums product. The kit sounds brutally aggressive even before adding the extra triggers. Well worth the price if you are recording metal songs of a heavier variet... read more [+]y, (think Gothenburg type sounds).

XLN is great, and metal is their specialty
by Lance Lindley from JapanMy love for all things Addictive Drums borders on ridiculous. I feel about this software the way guitarists feel about their favorite axe. I'm an XLN fanboy, I would actually wear hats and shirts wit... read more [+]h their logo on it. Every one of the AD products, from the base set to the ADPacks to the individual kit pieces are incredibly detailed and real sounding. I have bought every product these guys have released except for a couple of the midi collections in styles I know I will never work in. Well, XLN being from Scandinavia, metal is really these guys' forte. Unlike the other companies that basically seem to thin out the kick and turn up the volume on a rock kit and call it metal, XLN really knows what goes into a metal kit, from the pieces to the recording to the FX. Not only does the basic kit sound good on its own, the tons of presets that come with this ADPack feature about every style of metal kit you could possibly want, and the included midi files, played by Arch Enemy's Daniel Erlandsson, will inspire you to keep cranking out tracks just so you can use the drums. If you're even looking at this product, it means you probably should buy it. I'm 100% satisfied -- no, make that thrilled -- with this ADPack and AD in general. close [-]

sounds great, using for most of my tracks!
by tenlbham from United StatesI like the heavy sound of the kits available in this adpak. The ONLY thing I don't like about it, or maybe it's a function of AD, is that you can't mix pieces from the metal pack with the standard ki... read more [+]ts. close [-]
