XLN Audio has updated Addictive Drums to v1.1 and announced Retro, the first "ADpak" expansion for Addictive Drums, scheduled to be released this month (MSRP $149.95).
Retro is the first "ADpak" expansion for Addictive Drums and features three classic Ludwig drum sets from the 60s and 70s with cymbals from Paiste and Sabian. The drums were recorded in Studios 301 Stockholm in a big recording room with a rich ambience. Retro expands the Addictive Drums library and allows you to mix and match between the original drums and the new vintage kits. Retro also includes cowbells, tambourines and hand claps.
Retro is great for a vintage sound with presets inspired by classic songs. But you can also use the modern presets for an up-to-date sound full of character. Or turn to the RetroMental soundbank for a chance to hear the Ludwig kits like you've never heard them before. With the Retro ADpak you get over 1300 MIDI loops and 70 presets that will get you groovin' in Motown, banging your head to booming heavy Rock, and tunin' out to psychedelic Rock'n'Roll.
New features in Addictive Drums v1.1:
- Selectable backdrops.
- Support for ADpaks.
- Multiple outputs in Logic 8.
- Cowbell slot renamed Xtra and is now used for various percussion instruments.
- Minor bug fixes.
