The Metal AD2 ADPAK from XLN Audio is a virtual drum kit that delivers a heavy kick, thunderous toms, and a razor-sharp snare. The hard-as-nails kit embodies the sound of metal music. It includes specially selected Ludwig, Gretsch, Zildjian and Sabian pieces to deliver the perfect metal sound. Also included are special "trig" sounds for the kick and the snare. The thirty-one presets provide instant access to a variety of different metal sub-genres - heavy metal, death metal, speed metal, and others.
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.
