The Black Velvet ADpak from XLN Audio is an expansion pack for owners of Addictive Drums. It features samples of the DW Collector's Series drum kit along with Zildjian cymbals that were recorded at various professional studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
Specific techniques were used in the recording of the samples for the Black Velvet ADpak to allow for versatile control over the ambiance of the drum kit in your productions. The drums were recorded in a large, gymnasium-sized recording space, while the hi-hats and cymbals were recorded in a tight, damped smaller room. In addition, each drum, cymbal and hi-hat was recorded with a multitude of vintage and modern microphones in a variety of configurations at different proximities.
The DW Collector's Series is DW's flagship custom drum line and the Black Velvet ADpak features a six-piece kit that's been built using its components. These drums are designed to have a well-defined low end, a crisp high end and a controlled gritty quality that doesn't overtake the overall hi-fi sound. The Zildjian cymbals and hi-hats compliment the kit by having a controlled, tight high end to contrast the full low end of the DW drums.
