I own them all but AD2 has no competitor

I have EZ and Superior Drummer as well as Abbey Road. I used to use SD2 primarily but getting the tone and overall sound and levels was VERY difficult. Quite frankly, I could NEVER get the snare to sound the way I wanted. I wanted that Pearl "Crack". Just couldn't get it. EZD was waaayyyy over-produced After ordering AD2, I immediately realized how much time I wasted on the other products. I can play with different kicks and snares to achieve any sound I want. I absolutely LOVE the DW tones! The only regret I have is not going to these sooner!

XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2: Custom

I have all the major Virtual Drum Instrument vendors in my DAW. I was drawn to XLN initially to try a different vendor to get different sounds in the DAW. However, as I began to use the XLN interface I was very impressed with the ease-of-use and the ways I could adjust and tweak the sound all from the initial GUI interface. In fact at first, it seemed too stark and simple. However, as I began to tweak the various options available in the interface I found it very easy to use and very musical. Sometimes the most simple slight change brought the drum sound out in the mix without loosing its initial color and definition. The drums sounds are open and detailed. I have been able to more easily get detailed variation out of the cymbals than I can in other drums virtual drum instruments. I like the ease-of-use and sounds so much I went out and bought all the drums sounds XLN has available today. This is a good system to augment your color pallet.

Wish I would've bought EZdrummer2 instead of Addictive Drums2

So many reviews said that Addictive Drums 2 was better than EZdrummer 2 but I wish i had bought EZdrummer. Although you can tweak alot more things in Addictive, the layout and process of using Addictive is time consuming and frustrating at times. I will save up and buy EZdrummer2 the next time it's on sale.
