XLN Audio’s Addictive Drums is very easy to use and does not take long to understand at all. I fully understood how to work this plug in within a matter of minutes. I really love all of the compression and EQ capabilities that can be done when working with each individual sound separately. I am not a huge fan of the way the drums sound as is or even the kits that first come with it. I think they could have included some better kits that have more a “jazz” sound. Some of the distorted kits are really good though if you spend the time tweaking and EQ’ing them.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have never experienced any crashes or freezes working with Addictive Drums and it has become one of my favorite drumming plug ins over the years because I can run it many times simultaneously and not have to worry about it crashing or slowing down at all being that I like to have most of my drums on different channels and not all in the same pattern.

OVERALL OPINION

All of the basic functions of Addictive Drums are easy to work with and understand. Changing kits and adding patterns and fills is simple. I do not like most of the patterns though, and when it comes to changing patterns based on Tempo and BPM it can get really confusing because if you are in double time or regular time they patterns cannot be automatically changed you have to go in and manual move the MIDI notes which can be a daunting task. For the price that Addictive Drums cost I recommend purchasing it and getting some more kits for it based on the style of music that you are creating. Right out of the box it will have everything you need if you want to spend some time tweaking the sounds and molding them to fit your style of music but there are a lot of options to change and work with.
