Black Velvet AdPak
Black Velvet AdPak
Need another drum kit for Addictive Drums? The new Black Velvet AdPak is a modern classic dressed in black captured with a large, epic sound for only $49.
The Black Velvet ADpak is the sound you always wished you could afford! A modern classic dressed in black captured with a large, epic sound. Created with the grunge/post-grunge era in mind, with roots in alternative rock transcending to an expensive arena rock-band sound, this takes you on a journey from Seattle to LA. This ADpak is made with the highest demands on everything throughout the whole recording chain, capturing the unmistakable raw attitude in a luxurious package.
The included presets covers different clean setups to gritty alternative rock and grunge to slick, expensive and larger-than-life grandness. Black Velvet offers an almost unreal diversity go from a tight, fat and controlled sound to unleashing some kind of monster by just pushing the room fader! Simply put, it’s epic!
A great feature in the Black Velvet ADpak is the ability to creatively control the ambient sound. The recording was divided in two sessions where the drums were recorded in a gymnasium hall sized recording room and the hi-hat and cymbals in a smaller and damped recording room. By altering a few settings or loading presets you can go from tight-and-fat to loud-and-large fast and easy. Automate the settings for a close and tight kit in the verse and gigantic sound in the chorus.
