Addictive Drums has three main elements: a sample library, onboard processing options (accessed via the mixer and Edit/FX pages) and performance patterns. There's also support for e-drums.
Although at first glance the library might not seem to be that extensive (though add-on packs are available), the basic kit patches are complemented by about a hundred presets. These make use of the onboard processing and give you an excellent palette of sounds that goes way beyond a typical live kit. What's more, they're all fully editable.
While XLN Audio has opted not to include some of the more complex configuration options that you'll find in rival software, the upside is that using Addictive Drums is a breeze. It's definitely worth considering, and users of Cakewalk's Sonar should bear in mind that it now comes included with Sonar X3 Producer edition.45 Stars
