Addictive Drums

Addictive Drums offers a number of ways to get started with your drum tracks. Either you can simply pick a preset from the preset menu, choose a beat and go from there, or you can build your own drum kit from scratch picking and choosing the kit pieces you like and make your own MIDI beats. It works for all projects and ambitions and is built on three major, and equally important, building blocks:

  • 1. Drum Samples: The raw drum/cymbal sounds, recorded with a multi-mic setup.

  • 2. Production Tools: Mixing, insert effects, reverbs, the know-how of a sound technician / producer.

  • 3. Beats & Fills: The grooves, beats and fills of a good dummer!

Addictive Drums offers all this, in ONE easy-to-use plugin, compatible with all the major host software packages!

It comes with 3 complete kits, and lots of extra drums and cymbals. The samples include every nuance from the softest to the hardest hits, many stroke variations (hi-hat has 12 variations, snare has 6 for example) Alternating samples through-out bring unparalleled realism.

Akai MPD18 Pad Controller

Add genuine MPC pads to your setup with the MPD18. This MIDI-over-USB pad controller is great for DJs, programmers, producers, and other musicians. The controller is built around the pads and controls from Akai Professional's industry-standard MPC series and contains some of the same technology that provides tracks made with the MPC an unmistakably human feel. It boasts a compactness that easily fits onto desktops, it combines nicely with virtually any MIDI software, allowing you to create tracks that feel great.

16 Velocity and Pressure-Sensitive Pads

The MPD18 features 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive MPC pads, an Akai Pro exclusive. You can access three different banks of sounds from the MPC pads, meaning a total of 48 sounds at your fingertips. It also borrows the MPC series' assignable Q-Link controllers, allowing you to control nearly any parameters in your software in real time. Take advantage of 16 configurable presets and program it for the way you work with different hardware and software.

Assignable Q-Link Fader and MPC Note Repeat

Get natural, hands-on control of your most-used parameters with the assignable Q-Link fader. The MPC Note Repeat lets you quickly input patterns such as hi-hat parts or drum rolls.

Easy-To-Use, Plug-And-Play

You can use the MPD18 with your Mac or PC without installing any driver, as it sends MIDI information over its plug-and-play USB interface. The MPD18 powers itself through the USB connection and this controller of course comes with a USB cable. Use it to control nearly any MIDI software, as well as MIDI hardware, such as synths, sound modules, samplers, sequencers, drum machines, and more.

With the control feel of the MPC and with super-portable compactness, this is an impressive piece of hardware for your setup.
