Does anyone still use Addictive Drums 2?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am curious about this because I purchased the plugin some years ago with 3 kits. The drum libraries are getting bigger and bigger nowadays and I wonder if this still catch up the competition with no noticeable additions to their catalog in recent years. Nowadays, there are another developers like GGD with products that appeal to me more.

What do you think about XLN Audio products?

I use the XLN kits with Jamstix.  

The XLN midipacks are no match for Jamstix's features, but the XLN kits are (mostly) better than the kits in Jamstix.

I too still use AD2.

i get a few decent kits and working with it isn’t difficult.

 

That said, I do like BFD and Superior Drummer better. A few reasons.

The GUIs are better.

The kits offered are much easier to select as they display (audio) the actual sampled kit(s) while AD2 only displays the samples with additional playback processing. That bothers me when selecting kits. I prefer to hear the raw samples.

 

As I originally I acquired AD2 bundled with Sonar, I did add more for very little extra. I have not replaced it as I can't afford to, but I do get respectable kits anyway.
