XLN Audio Releases Addictive Drums – Acoustic Drum Studio Plug-In
XLN Audio has released Addictive Drums, an acoustic Drum Production Studio that allows very detailed tweaking of all drum parameters including cymbal chokes, and sample controls for volume and pitch (with envelopes), levels (adjust balance of Close, Overhead and Room levels of each Kitpiece), and filter (cut the low end on hihats for example).
According to XLN Audio, to create a convincing drum track in any style you need 3 things:
1) The â€œrawâ€ drum/cymbal sounds, recorded with a multi mic setup
2) The mixing process, including all the effects and the know-how of a producer/technician
3) The grooves, beats and fills of a good drummer
Addictive Drums claims to offer all this, in an easy to use plug-in and compatible with all the major hosts. With the included Presets you can immediately try out different production styles and easily tweak anything in the mix to make it perfect. No more â€œI have 30 plugin windows to keep track of just for the drumsâ€. And when youâ€™ve perfected your favorite drum sound, just save it and re-use it in the next project! Nutty!
