The world's best drums out of the box

Addictive Drums 2 comes standard with three extraordinary drum kits including both of our acclaimed Fairfax kits (recorded at the legendary Los Angeles studio formerly known as Sound City) and the loud, large, and luxurious Black Velvet! The package includes 130 presets ranging from super-clean to highly polished and radio-ready to heavily processed and distorted. You also get our Core MIDI Library containing over 5000 inspiring beats and grooves covering many styles. You can use them as-is or easily tweak them to make them uniquely yours.

You're serious about your sound. So is AD2.

Tweak any of the professionally designed presets or build up a custom kit from scratch, it's your choice. Addictive Drums 2 is packed with mixing and sound-shaping features that let you transform the raw sounds in amazing ways. Whether you need your drums to sound open and crystal-clear, or produced and radio-ready, or grungy and heavily distorted, AD2 has studio-grade tools to get the job done. There are dozens of individual features, but here are a few highlights:

  • Find Your Sound
  • Build Your Kit
  • Tweak The Sound

Get professional results. Fast.

The best sounds and features are useless if you can't find and use them quickly when inspiration strikes. Addictive Drums 2 really excels in this area. Every detail – from drag-and-drop audio and MIDI, to rapid linking and layering, to near-instant kitpiece swapping–is designed to keep you in the creative zone. The clean layout and lighting-fast workflow include hundreds of individual features that make AD2 fast and familiar – even for first-time users.
