United Pop AD2 ADPAK from XLN Audio is a virtual drum kit that includes presets that deliver instant, radio-ready sounds in many different flavors. Utilizing the studio at 6050 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, the vintage Leedy & Ludwig kit was meticulously recorded in every conceivable way in order to provide 30 presets that cover a wide range of pop tones. Additionally, the kit features a nickel over brass snare and a Japanese-made "Trump" branded snare. By altering overhead/room levels (or loading different presets) it's possible to easily transform the kit from "Fat Sound" to "Soft Jazz Pop." The changes can be automated to achieve different sounds between verse and chorus.
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 mapped presets for e-drum models.
