I have addictive drums 1 and 2 and I never knew of the possibilities that this powerful software provided. I have only been using it to quickly grab beats and drag into my projects. Thanks for the great explanation video I cant wait to get under the hood of this program.

Nicely Detailed Course
The Author covers as much as he kno', some important things he left out e.g. Sync to Play/Stop, is a great feature that allows AD users to sync the beats page to their DAW in use allowing quick preview and selection. Outside of bits like this, the course was well informative and now i finally kno'how to route AD2 to individual tracks properly and do a bounce to track in simple format. Thank you !

Todd teaches us the ins and outs of Addictive Drums 2, a tool I'm growing to love more and more, now that I know how to use it! Watching him go through each piece of the plugin and tweaking each knob to taste was helpful (technically, as well as musically). Will view again for sure.
