XLN Audio XLN1044 overview

  • 1Description

The Black Oyster AD2 ADPAK from XLN Audio is a virtual drum kit delivering Ringo Starr-inspired percussion that harks back to the days of The Beatles. The kit works perfectly for anything from early 60's Motown to the psychedelic pop of the late 60's. Medium sizes and coated heads deliver a genuine pop sound that is period correct.

The kit is powered by the Addictive Drums 2 sound engine, allowing for instant loading and tweaking of drums, along with realistic performance playback, all with little CPU load. The musician-centric interface and effects provide endless possibilities for composition and sound design. Addictive Drums 2 supports most major e-drum companies like Roland, Yamaha, Alesis, and others and includes many map presets for e-drum models.
