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.

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.

The Black Velvet ADpak was divided in two recording sessions: The drums were recorded in a large studio with a gymnasium hall sized recording room, and the hi-hats and cymbals in a smaller damped space. This is a well-known technique in modern drum recordings, giving great control over the ambience. Both the kit and the cymbals were recorded with a vast selection of vintage and modern microphones in a great variety of setups and distances, capturing the richness and raw attitude of the drums in the massive room and the silky tight top-end of the cymbals and hi-hats – a combination that offers great variety for sculpting a high-end sound.
The featured kit is a DW Collector’s Series, the flagship line of DW’s Custom Drums and a modern classic! The Black Velvet setup is a six-piece kit, perfectly matched with a fine selection of Zildjian cymbals and hi-hats, easy to configure in Addictive Drums according to style, sound and needs. The drums have a warm and crisp character with the perfect amount of grit and a well defined low-end. Tuned to make the massive recording room a perfect compliment and to give the overall sound a raw yet controlled and rich sound. The focus on the cymbals and hi-hats was, by placing them in a tight damped room, a more controlled approach resulting in a smooth and tight top-end in contrast to the low-end and big space in the drums.

Xtra LP Tribell
A great feature in the Black Velvet ADpak is the ability to creatively control the ambience 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.
The Xtra slot features a LP Tribell - a percussion instrument with three different sized cowbells in one.
