Addictive Drums offers a number of ways to get started with your drum tracks. Either you can simply pick a preset from the preset menu, choose a beat and go from there, or you can build your own drum kit from scratch picking and choosing the kit pieces you like and make your own MIDI beats.

Addictive Drums works for all projects and ambitions.

Addictive Drums is built on three major, and equally important, building blocks...

1. Drum Samples: The raw drum/cymbal sounds, recorded with a multi-mic setup.

2. Production Tools: Mixing, insert effects, reverbs, the know-how of a sound technician / producer.

3. Beats & Fills: 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 software packages!

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 (hi-hat has 12 variations, snare has 6 for example) Alternating samples through-out bring unparalleled realism.

Addictive Drums 1.5 Adrenaline update offers a number of new features such as:

  • Full E-Drum Support
  • General MIDI Support
  • Beat Transformer
  • 30+ New Presets
  • 300+ New MIDI Files


All sampled drum/cymbal sounds are recorded with a multi channel mic setup, just as you would record a real drum kit.
