A complete bargain!
Triggagnomic, 09.01.2018
I bought this to trigger my digital kit, (a DTXpress IV module + acoustic, mesh heads triggered drums and various Yamaha PCY cymbals) and for recording through a DAW using Windows 10 and a Steinberg UR 22 MKII.

First off, the drums sound great! The package includes your choice of any 3 ADpaks, MIDIpaks and Kitpieces from the XLN store and there are choices to suit many tastes. I chose the Funk, Jazz and Black Velvet kits to give me a wider choice of drums and cymbals. Setting up each kitpiece within the whole kit is easy and there are many room presets to fit the sound you're looking for, from completely clean kits to very dirty and/or electronic sounding kits. Overall, I'd say the sound is very clean and neutral without any room effects and the drums sound very 'close' and almost perhaps 'pre dampened' sometimes. For me, this is perfect, but you may need to buy either a more rock orientated ADpak or tweak the room settings if you want a more 'open' sounding kit.

The program itself is very easy and intuitive to navigate, and you'll soon be editing kits, kitpieces and room sounds to your heart's content! Furthermore, mapping your module through MIDI is almost effortless as well because XLN have provided MIDI profiles for just about every recent kit from the 'big' brand manufacturers. For me, it was as easy as selecting 'DTXPress IV SE' from the menu and using the 'learn' function to map any drums or pads that weren't recognised by the default settings.

Triggering is also much, much better in AD2 than it is on my module. Trigger settings that would cause double triggering or misfires on my module just don't happen in AD2, so I've been able to increase the gain levels and have a much more responsive and sensitive kit setup all around. Having found the right drum and cymbal mix, if I close my eyes, it's almost like I'm playing my actual acoustic kit. AD2 also supports cymbal choking and positional sensing if your module is capable.

My only possible complaint with AD2 is that it doesn't have many ride and hi-hat options for me. Of the 21 possible acoustic rides, 5 of them are Zildjian while the majority are Sabian and Meinl rides. Of the 23 possible hi-hats, 7 of them are Zildjian pairs. While this isn't really a problem per se, as a Zildjian player I would have preferred more Zildjian products to work with! However, this is by no means a 'deal breaker' for me and your milage may vary if you regulary play a differnt brand of cymbals. With that said, it's perfectly possible to edit the cymbal sounds to more closely match your acoustic cymbals so it's no problem really.

For somebody who has doubts about buying this software, I'd encourage you to download the demo from the XLN site before buying this. Although the demo program only has bass/snare/hi-hat/crash, you can get a good feel for the drum sounds and room editing options and there are plenty of included MIDI groove files to test with.

For the price, I think this is an amazing piece of software. I'm thrilled with it and I can't really find anything to complain about at all. I'd very happily recommend this product to everyone!

Bang for your buck drums. Definitely worth it. Realistic and diverse
BLMP, 21.05.2020
3 awesome sounding drum sets... for that alone I almost want to buy it a second time because the kits sound so amazing. Internal processing is good, especially for someone who might not have the plugins to do it.
I admit the interface is not super intuitive, but yout know it by the second or third time you use the program.
Of course the sounds need work to 'get there', as do all VST, but they are really good sounding, very very realistic and diverse drum kits.
The big con here, for me at least, is that XLN present a bunch of loops as a part of the product and well... i don't really care for that. I have no real need or use for it, Though I reckon lots of diferente people make music, beginners and beatmakers might have a use for loops, but they are not for me, at least. I would much much rather have an extra kit instead.

Einfach gut
Kristof H., 05.12.2019
Ich finde die Soundlibrarys wirklich gut und auch die Handhabung des Tools. Ich habe mir dieses Plugin zzgl. einer Kitpacks UND Addictive Trigger gekauft, um schnell bei Schlagzeugaufnahmen einzelnen Instrumente zu ersetzen oder einfach nur Samples hinzuzufügen. Mein absoluter Favorit ist die Tama Bell Brass Snare. Macht so out of the Box unfassbar viel Spaß und man merkt wieder: Den Unterschied zwischen "Klingt nach Proberaum" und "Klingt professionell" macht meistens die Snare aus.

Excellent
Anozer, 03.02.2019
Je possède une TD4-KX2 depuis 7 ou 8 ans et AD2 l'a totalement transformée. Je suis incapable de de jouer sans aujourd'hui.

D'abord la qualité des sons est extra. On ressens toute la vélocité de chaque élément comme sur un vrai kit avec toutes les petites imperfections et harmoniques d'une véritable fut ou d'une véritable cymbale artisanale.

Ensuite, la quantité de kit est jubilatoire pour qui connait un peu le marché. C'est un vrai régal de choisir sa Crash Zildjiant K Dark ou sa ride Sabian Vault sur son kit machin et avec sa CC bidule... Honnêtement, ayany acheté ce pack en promo à -50%, j'ai craqué le lendemain sur un second pour disposer de plus de kits...

Et enfin, les réglages sont fantastiques. Je suis moins à l'aise pour en parler mais on peut se la jouer véritable ingénieur du son, en déplaçant les micros, en rajoutant des compresseurs, des filtres, sur chaque élément, etc.

Par contre ATTENTION, Addictive Drums 2 n'est pas officiellement compatible de Garageband. Il fonctionne, il faut éventuellement bidouiller, mais le support ne vous aidera pas. C'est la seule raison pour laquelle je lui donne 4/5.
