This complete drum production studio software will get you hooked.

Craving a quality drum kit but don't think you can afford one? Think again. With XLN's Addictive Drums production toolkit you'll get 3 uber-realistic sounding virtual kits for the price of less than one traditional setup, plus plenty of extras, and not have to worry about floor space or your neighbors. This formidable music software is compatible with all major plug-in formats. Addictive Drums gives you instant and easy access to every parameter, so you can program completely realistic drum tracks in any style or genre.

Addictive Drums is built on three essential components of a world-class drum studio: superior multi-mic samples of a wide variety of premium drums, full production tools to tweak the sonic qualities of the kit (including envelopes, tuning, insert effects, reverbs, overhead, and room mic control), and a full suite of more than 3,000 built-in beats and grooves.

The toolkit's default sounds are extremely realistic, producing true acoustic drums, but you can also manipulate them into machine-like kits or weird rhythmic effects. Addictive Drums is unique in its ability to deliver such a wide array of production styles.

Whether you're an experienced drum programmer or an aspiring experimenter, with Addictive Drums you'll be able to re-create the "James Brown" beat or create your own distinctive sounds quicker than a Travis Barker snare solo.
