XLN Audio Addictive Drums is hands down the best virtual drumming program on the market today. I have been nothing but completely satisfied with everything about this plug in, everything is right in front of you not crazy menus to get what you want. It is very easy to change our kits out too, and the kits are very good all of the kits are great quality and there are even some retro kits and fun kits with weird effects on them but it all adds to your creativity.


Very easy to install and authorize, you will need internet connect to authorize the program though. If you have any problems getting it set up, XLN staff is on hand to really help you in that department and they will make sure you get it up and running.


Overall, it’s a very powerful plug in for drums (its not stand alone, so its plug in only.) Its easy to set up in any daw or sequencing program as long as you have it in your plug in vst folder your program should recognize it. One thing that I didn’t like about this software is the full price of it was way to high for me. I feel like they could bring the price down a lot for a program that does NO synths and No sequencing. You are paying all that money just for some drum kits and drum patters and fills. Its just a little overpriced to me, but it does sound amazing and is the most realistic one that I have tried this far. I have tried several other “real” drum kits and plug ins but Addictive Drums by XLN takes the cake by far. You can even download a trial or free version from there website but keep in mind that the free version really limits you and only has one kit with no toms just a basic kick snare and a few hats and cymbals and you really cant get the full effect of the software untill you buy it. Look around online for discounts and see if you can get the price down some though.
