XLN Audio XLN1046 overview

  • 1Description

Retroplex AD2 ADPAK from XLN Audio is a virtual drum kit that captures the drum sounds of legendary glam rock artists like David Bowie and Lou Reed. The acrylic see-through Vistalite drums became popular in the early 70's for their great looks, fast attack and clear sustain. The included presets provide instant access to sounds ranging from clean and pristine to distorted and heavily processed.

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.
