Addictive Drums used on Avril Lavigne's award-winning album!
Avril Lavigne’s mutli-platinum album, ‘The Best Damn Thing’, features XLN Audio’s Addictive Drums.
Drummer and programmer Stephen Wolf (aka ‘Wolf’, above) says, “I think it's one of the best products of its kind on the market: great user interface, cool effects, etc, but my favorite thing about it is the fact that it comes with a great library of drum sounds."
Wolf has done live drumming and programming on albums by artists such as Pink, Britney Spears, Sugababes, and Annie Lennox, to name just a few.
"The Best Damn Thing" has sold 5 million copies worldwide by the end of 2007 according to the IFPI and globally it was the fourth biggest selling album for 2007...so hats off to XLN's Addictive Drums! Lavigne and Wolf liked it so much they gave it a credit in the album sleeve.
About Addictive Drums:
XLN Addictive Drums has everything you need to make a professional drumtrack production. It's flexible, yet very quick to learn and use. Addictive Drums is built on three major, and equally important, building blocks. You really need ALL three of them to get a complete drum production: Samples of the best brands available, in a studio with great acoustics, with a multi-mic setup. Stored in a multichannel format. Mixing, insert Effects, reverbs - the Know-How of a sound technician / producer. And last but not least, the grooves, beats and fills of a good dummer! Addictive Drums offers all this, in ONE easy-to-use plugin, compatible with all the major host softwares out there!
With one click, you can load up a complete drum production. The settings for the Kit, the Insert Effects and the 2 built in Reverbs are recalled in a split second. Save your own presets, and organize them in folders for quick access in any project. They appear automatically in the preset menu. So many production styles are covered that you are bound to find something that works with your music production. Even if this is not the case you can easily start out with a preset that is close to what you want, and then tweak your way to a drum production that suits your music perfectly. When you are done, just save the preset, and it will be there for you to recall instantly in your other projects.
Addictive Drums is very easy to learn and use, and it works for just about anybody. The User Interface is straight-forward and gives you lots of flexibility. All settings can be tweaked and changed to perfection, and Addictive Drums introduces some very neat features that haven't even been seen or heard until now!
Addictive Drums ships with 3 complete kits, and lots of extra drums and cymbals. The samples include every nuance from the softest to the hardest hits, many stroke variations (hihat has 12 variations, snare has 6 for example) Alternating samples through-out bring unparalleled realism. All sampled drum/cymbal sounds are recorded with a multi channel mic setup, just as you would record a real drum kit.
