XLN Audio Black Velvet

XLN Audio has launched Black Velvet, a new ADpak for the Addictive Drummer virtual drum instrument for Windows and Mac.

The Black Velvet ADpak is the sound you always wished you could afford! A modern classic dressed in black captured with a large, epic sound. Created with the grunge/post-grunge era in mind, with roots in alternative rock transcending to an expensive arena rock-band sound, this takes you on a journey from Seattle to LA. This ADpak is made with the highest demands on everything throughout the whole recording chain, capturing the unmistakable raw attitude in a luxurious package.

The included presets covers different clean setups to gritty alternative rock and grunge to slick, expensive and larger-than-life grandness. Black Velvet offers an almost unreal diversity – go from a tight, fat and controlled sound to unleashing some kind of monster by just pushing the room fader! Simply put, it’s epic!

XLN Audio Loud Beats & Songs

XLN Audio has also released the Loud Beats & Songs MIDI Pak, a collection of MIDI songs and beats made as a compliment to the Black Velvet ADpak.

This MIDI Pak is not only “Loud, Large and Luxurious” like the Black Velvet ADpak, it’s sophisticated, hard-hitting and detailed – cut-through beats and songs played hard in different grooves and variations.

Loud Beats & Songs covers many different styles from alternative rock, grunge, post-grunge to modern rock and experimental pop. Songs divided in parts (e.g. intro, verses, choruses, bridges) and beats with different variations, tempos and grooves (e.g. hihat, ride, crash, tom, fills) in 4/4 and 6/8. Mix and match beats, fills and grooves – arrange a complete song in minutes!

The Black Velvet ADpak costs 59.95 USD/EUR, Loud Beats & Songs is 19.95 USD/EUR, and a bundle of both is available to purchase for 69.95 USD/EUR.

XLN Audio releases Session Percussion ADpak + Percussion Beats MIDI Pak

XLN Audio Session Percussion

XLN Audio has announced the release of the Session Percussion ADpak, a selection of handpicked percussion instruments combined as a creative suite for Addictive Drums.

Everything in Session Percussion was specifically selected and recorded to work as a regular kit within Addictive Drums, combining the playability of a standard drum kit with the exotic sounds of percussion instruments to maximize compatibility and creative beat construction. Use the whole kit as it is, as a second instance or combine selected kit pieces with another kit.

This ADpak is extremely versatile and is perfect for almost any genre or production style. Go from vintage drum kit sounds to Hip Hop/RnB to Latin Pop/Rock to straight up weird. The included presets and beats offer a great variety of mix ready sounds combined with superb beats making it easy to find the right elements fast.

The Percussion Beats MIDI Pak was made with the Session Percussion ADpak in mind, and some beats make use of the congas and timbales in that ADpak. However the basic beats and grooves can be used with any of the kits in AD or any ADpak.

Whether you need complete arrangements, busy beats or just a percussion compliment on top of another beat this is the perfect tool to find the right elements fast. The beats and songs reach from old school funk and soul to modern dancehall riddims.
All beats are made with many different variations and layers opening up for unique beat construction possibilities.

The ADpak costs 59 EUR, the MIDI Pak is 19 EUR. Both are also available in a bundle for 69 EUR.

XLN Audio releases free Ludwig Vistalite Bass Drum Kitpiece Pak

XLN Audio has released the Ludwig Vistalite Bass Drum Kitpiece Pak, a free bass drum for Addictive Drums.

Ludwig Vistalite Bass Drum Kitpiece Pak

To celebrate the great success of the INDIE ADpak and the INDIE Rock MIDI Pak we are giving away an extra Bass Drum.

This is a Ludwig Vistalite (Blue) 22 X 16″ and it’s recorded exactly as the ICE Custom Shop Bass Drum in the INDIE ADpak. The Vistalite bass drum is slightly shorter and deeper in character than the ICE Custom Shop in the INDIE ADpak and it’s actually the most used bass drum in this studio.

When we tried out drums in the studio for the INDIE ADpak we fell in love with the ICE Custom Shop kit but we were stunned by how great this Vistalite bass drum sounded so we just had to include it in the recording.

It’s rich, fat and punchy and right now ladies and gentlemen – it’s for FREE!

Ludwig Vistalite Bass Drum Kitpiece Pak features

  • Ludwig Vistalite 22 X 16” Bass Drum.
  • Recorded on Analog Tape.
  • Rare Vintage Mics & Vintage Gear.
  • Rich, Fat & Punchy.
  • Recorded at SGS Studio A (Svenska Grammofon Studion).

The Ludwig Vistalite Bass Drum Kitpiece Pak is a free download for Addictive Drums users.
