Soundtrade Studios

1967 was a good year for Jazz. Miles Davis released Miles Smiles, Harry Connick Junior was born, and the oldest and largest studio still in operation in Stockholm, Soundtrade Studios, opened its doors to the musicians of the world. Half a century later, we took our jazz kit into their beautiful and enormous live room, to take advantage of the amazing acoustics and serious collection of vintage gear to get just the right sound for this ADpak. Everything was captured with great care and attention to detail, using Neumann, Telefunken, AKG and AEA microphones through Universal Audio preamps. Nice!

Custom Kit - Premier Gen-X drum kit

Jazz requires a certain kind of sound from the drums that simply can't be bashed out on one of our monster rock or pop kits. We needed something altogether more refined for the ADpak. Start with a Premier Gen-X kit, made in the UK with revolutionary birch/maple hybrid shells, tuned up to sound tight and crispy. Add a wood beater for the kick, a mint-condition Ludwig Acrolite snare, famous for its rich tone, and some of the finest brassware from Meinl, Paste and Sabian, and you're cooking on gas.

Important note about the Addictive Drums 2 engine:

The Addictive Drums 2 engine is included with every Addictive Drums 2 ADpak and Bundle we sell.  In other words, this product does not require any other software to work and can be used by itself (in Standalone mode) or as a plugin within host music software.

For new users, that means this product is an entry-point into the world of Addictive Drums 2.  For existing Addictive Drums 2 users, this product is an expansion to their collection of extraordinary drum sounds.
