"I need tools that sound just right - with Addictive Drums I'm never out of options" Max Martin
"After using Addictive Drums 2 for only a week, I am happy to report that AD blows my other drum plugin out of the water on every front."
"I just did my first track in the studio using AD..... Wow!! I love it!"
"My studio is too small to record drums but why would I? I would never get them to sound like these! And so many kits and room effects....amazing!"

The clean layout and lighting-fast workflow include hundreds of individual features that make AD2 fast and familiar – even for first-time users.

"Addictive Drums 2 delivers a flexible, realistic virtual drum kit and (preset-driven) drummer with a relatively low hard drive footprint and an almost non-existent learning curve."
