XLN Audio releases Retro ADpak expansion for Addictive Drums

Retro is the first ADpak for Addictive Drums and features three classic Ludwig drum kits from the 60s and 70s with cymbals from Paiste and Sabian. The drums were recorded in Studios 301 Stockholm, in a big recording room with a rich ambience. Retro expands the Addictive Drums library and allows you to mix and match between the original drums and the new vintage kits. Retro also includes cowbells, tambourines and hand claps.

Retro is great for a vintage sound with presets inspired by classic songs. But you can also use the modern presets for an up-to-date sound full of character. Or turn to the RetroMental soundbank for a chance to hear the Ludwig kits like you’ve never heard them before. With the Retro ADpak you get over 1300 midi loops and 70 presets that will get you groovin’ in Motown, banging your head to booming heavy Rock, and tunin’ out to psychedelic Rock’n’Roll!

Ludwig Black Oyster 60s Vintage
A groovy Ringo kit that is perfect for anything from Motown to psychedelic pop. Medium sizes and coated heads give you a genuine 60s pop sound.

Ludwig Blue Oyster 70s Vintage
Size does matter! This kit mimics the setup by legendary drummer John Bonham. The big sizes and coated heads tuned in a very characteristic way, give you a clear and thunderous drum sound!

Ludwig Vistalite 70s Vintage
The acrylic see-through Vistalite drums became popular in the early 70s for their great looks, fast attack and clear sustain. Legends like Keith Moon and John Bonham would often perform on these plastic monsters!
