You don't own the Metal ADpak - it owns you!
Featuring a new Ludwig drum kit recorded by metal guru Ross Robinson in Los Angeles, this ADpak brings a totally new sound to Addictive Drums. Ross Robinson is one of the most renowned metal producers in the world. He has worked with bands such as Korn, Slipknot, Machine Head and Sepultura, and is widely known for his raw, powerful drum productions and dedication to details. For the Metal ADpak recordings he brought in his A-team consisting of engineer Steve Evetts (Sepultura) and drummer Jeff Freidl (Ashes Divide, Puscifer). The result is pure adrenaline!

Audio Demos


Ludwig Classic Maple drumkit

With thunderous toms, a heavy kick drum, a sharp but balanced snare drum and vicious Zildjian cymbals this kit really delivers in any kind of metal style. The 18 piece drum kit was hand picked and tuned by Ross Robinson for the recording sessions.



The Metal ADpak includes 30+ hard-as-nails mix presets made by professional metal producers and musicians such as Roberto Laghi and Björn Gelotte (In Flames), David E.K. (Fuge), Martin Preikschas and many others.

Trig sounds

A special feature in this ADpak is the new trig sounds for the kick and the snare. Four different trig sounds are included to give your sound that extra edge and attack in your mix.
