XLN Audio has announced the release of Metal ADpak and Diabolic MIDIpak for Addictive Drums.

You don’t own the Metal ADpak. It owns you! Featuring a new Ludwig drum kit recorded by Metal guru Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot) in Los Angeles, this ADpak brings a totally new sound to Addictive Drums.

With thunderous toms, a heavy kick drum, a sharp but balanced snare drum and vicious Zildjian cymbals this kit really delivers in any kind of style in metal. Ross Robinson is widely known for his raw, powerful drum productions and dedication to details. For the recordings he brought in his A-team consisting of engineer Steve Evetts (Sepultura) and drummer Jeff Freidl (Ashes Divide, Puscifer).
