Software Description

Addictive Drums is a drum production virtual instrument software from XLN Audio.

Addictive Drums is a Complete Virtual Drum Production Studio. Flexible and intuitive, you will enjoy creating life like drum tracks in a short amount of time.

It comes with 3 complete drum kits, and a number of extra drums and cymbals. The samples included carry every dynamic and nuance variations, from the softest to the hardest strikes. It also includes a number of stroke variations (hihat has 12 variations, snare has 6 for example) with alternating samples through-out to make sure your drum track varies and sounds human like. All sampled drum/cymbal sounds are recorded professionally with a multi channel mic setup, just as you would record a real drum kit.

Getting AD into VSThost

After many hours & many fails, i now succeeded to unzip AD installprogram and opening VSTHost, but everytime i want to transport AD into VSThost i get a little window with a red cross + warning that that's not possible....What can i do. Regards, Drummer from Holland

quiero el demo

me gusta el programa gran calidad

AD doesnot show up in Reaper

I have Roland TD-9 drums,and I want to use them to trigger a drumming software on a WIN XP SP3 computer. Now I'm using Toontracks EZDrummer/Toontrack Solo for that purpose. I also have M-Audio Midisport Uno midi-usb and Asio4all driver. The system is working allright.
However, I'd like to switch to Addictive Drums for more versatility.

The problem is that I cannot see AD in my host software, in Reaper. When I add "a virtual instrument on a new track" in Reaper, EZDrummer is shown, but AD is not in the instrument or in the Vst/Vsti lists. Addictive Drums.dll does exist in the c:\program files\Steinberg\Plugins- folder /just like to EZDrummer.dll). Reaoer toI have also copied the AD dll to c:\program files\Reaper\plugins- folder. I have made Reaper to scan both folders, without any help.
Is there any workaround for this problem, or do I really need to go for the Superior Drummer????

I m using Cakewalk music

I m using Cakewalk music creator and Windows 7 and can not find Addictive Drums (I checked that dll file is already in the correct folder) thanks

Where's the application?

I made the download to check your program Addictive Drums v1.1 .

The question is that after install, I did not have the Icon application.

The Icon on Programs is only to Remove the program.

It means that the Application is not there.

Could you please help in order to have it?

Re: Where's the application?

It is not independent software you need VST hosting software like Cubase , Reaper etc.

I have the Reaper software.

I have the Reaper software. When I create a new track and go to add a new fx, addictive drums is not in the list of VST plugins. How to I make it so Reaper can recognize addictive drums?

reaper & drummer vst

I just downloaded the demo of addictive drums, Im impressed! Sorry about my last reply, I said I could'nt find ezdrummer in reaper, but I checked again and it was there, only not as ezdrummer but dfh toontrack, and addictive drums was there as well. I think you should check your vst folder which should be c:\program files\reaper\plugins Im presuming that reaper is your only host\DAW ,where as my vst folder is located in c:\program files\common files\steinberg\vst 2. Just check to see if your AD is in the right folder, if not find where your addictive drums dll. file is and copy that into your primary vst folder. cheers ACE

reaper & drummer vst

Hey man, first time on this site. Just trying to find opinions of fellow musos on addictive drummer vs superior drummer when I read about your problem with Reaper. I have easy drummer lite which is quite good, and I can use it on my cubase 4, sonar le, and any other daw you can name' but for some reason it wont open up in reaper. reaper is an awsom daw for the price, but for the moment Im sticking with any other daw but reaper. IT just dosnt show up in reapers vst folder for some reason. I tried finding out how to use ezdrummer by typing it up on google, and found a few answers, but still dosnt help me. I hope you have better luck finding the answers for yourself, all I can suggest is find another daw. all the best - Ace
