XLN Audio Fairfax Vol. 2

XLN Audio has launched Fairfax Vol. 2, a collection of warm, punchy, old-school American drums from a 1960’s Gretsch kit.

Fairfax Vol. 2 is the second half of our acclaimed Fairfax collection. Like Vol. 1, this ADpak was recorded in the legendary studio at Fairfax Recordings (formerly known as Sound City) where countless classic albums were recorded.

This ADpak features a late-60s Gretsch “Round Badge” drum kit with a round, full tone. When paired with the great-sounding room at Fairfax Recordings, this warm and punchy kit really brings your tracks to life! Perfect for a variety of styles, especially rock, folk, and indie.

The ADpak is available for purchase for 79.95 EUR. A bundle of Fairfax Vol. 1 and 2 is 119.95 EUR.

XLN Audio releases Addictive Drums 2

XLN Audio has launched Addictive Drums 2, an update to the virtual drum instrument for Windows and Mac.

XLN Audio Addictive Drums 2

With Addictive Drums 2, we’re taking it to the next level. More world-class instruments, more amazing sound shaping features, more tools for rhythm creation and transformation, and total freedom to pick only the kits and add-ons that are right for you.

All this while maintaining the fast, clean, musician-centric interface that made us successful in the first place. We hope you’ll love what we have made.

Changes in Addictive Drums 2

  • Sound shaping improvements
    • New Transient Shaper gives more or less ‘snap’ to individual kitpieces or your overall drum mix.
    • The new Tone Designer makes a drum sound more or less dampened, letting you add or remove ringing with ease.
    • Two Delerb processors combine Delay and Reverb effects that are ideal for drums. A unique ‘Swirl’ thickening feature and advanced EQ give sound designers lots of exciting new options.
    • Six additional Kitpiece Slots let you build kits with up to 18 individual drums.
    • New FlexiSlots let you load additional Kicks, Snares, HiHats, and more.
    • Kitpiece Linking lets you easily link drums for a fatter sound.
    • Specialty “Trigger” Kitpieces (sine waves, white noise, one shot drum samples, etc.) open up a world of new sound design options. You can link them to acoustic drums to give more “oomph” or even use them on their own to create new analog and digital drum machine sounds!
    • New Response section lets you tweak performances to fit them into a mix.
    • Two MultiFX inserts on every channel for even more sound design options.
    • New 4 band EQ with additional Low and High cut controls.
  • New beat creation tools
    • New Beat Transformer lets you tweak any existing rhythm to make it fit into a track and to make it uniquely yours. No more cookie-cutter beats!
    • New Grid Search system lets you quickly find the beat you hear in your head!
    • Improved Beats Browser lets you easily browse beats to find your inspiration.
    • The Record MIDI feature saves time by letting you record MIDI directly from your host software into Addictive Drums 2.
  • Workflow enhancements
    • You can now Drag’n’Drop Audio directly from the Addictive Drums 2 engine. Play a drum—or even a whole rhythm if you like—and simply drag it as an audio file straight into your music software’s timeline or desktop.
    • New “Sound Ideal” search system lets you sort all your presets from ‘clean’ to ‘distorted’ to help you narrow down and find the right sounds quickly.
    • Snapshots makes A/B comparisons super easy. Take snapshots of all your settings and instantly recall any four snapshots instantly.
    • New CloudSync system means your presets are always up to date and with you no matter where you choose to work.
    • Standalone version of AD2 is your perfect jamming companion. Fire it up quickly and start playing along without dealing with your music software. The new Tempo control makes it easy to adapt beats to your needs.
    • Many improved Copy/Paste features.
    • New great sounding presets and ExploreMaps for all your existing kits lets you get your drum track sounding great in no time.
    • All Presets now include a MIDI preview to let you hear the preset played as the sound designer imagined. Use it to find inspiration or write all new music.
    • Users can now preview all ADpaks and MIDIpaks (even ones they don’t own) from directly from Addictive Drums 2.

Addictive Drums 2 is available for purchase in three bundles with ADpaks, MIDIpaks, and Kitpiece Paks, starting at 149.95 EUR. All ADpaks (including the newly released Fairfax Vol.1) are now powered by the Addictive Drums 2 engine, and are available for purchase for 79.95 EUR each.
