Sounds great, easy to use

Im not an experienced drummer, I’m a guitar player and singer songwriter with a home studio who writes and records his own music. For over s year I’ve been trying to play an electronic drum kit to get drum tracks for my songs, but I’m just not a great drummer. However, with an actual kit, I could at least get my ideas out with a simple swing of the arms and legs, and my kit’s module has really good sounds. So I was afraid to commit to drumming software and midi programming because I didn’t want inferior tones, or an onerous programming sequencing process. Thank goodness I took the plunge with Addictive drums. The drum tones are very good and are dry enough to allow you to fine tune, mix and get the sound you’re looking for. Installing and setting up was really easy, and programming midi drums is so much easier than I thought. It’s much better than my snoring boring amateur drum tracks from an e-kit. I’m an audio perfectionist with 18 years of consistently playing and writing and I am very impressed with this product in terms of sound quality, variety, and usability. I will say that I find the pre-programmed beats to be nearly useless though. They all have odd and random off time or syncopated elements which would be an insane coincidence if they actually linked up with what you’re writing. There are literally zero straightforward normal beats to build off of. My only complaint really. But I want my own personal drum tracks for my own personal music, so no big. Just saying that there are instances where it’d be nice to insert a basic beat and then midi edit around it until it fits your idea. All in all great sounds, easy to use, lots of variety, nice n dry for easy integration into your mixes, and the sounds take very well to working into your DAW with plug-ins (comp, eq, verb, limiter etc.) I would recommend this to any songwriter looking to flesh out ideas, construct songs, or even record complete mixed tracks. 4/5
