XLN Audio: Vintage Dry ADpak (expansion for Addictive Drums)

We've featured XLN Audio on Productiontrends.com before, and again, the've come out with some really great stuff. Introducing the Vintage Dry ADpak expansion for Addictive Drums.  XLN is particularly great for those home studio owners who are on a budget.  With Addictive Drums at a mere $179.95, and the new expansion coming to $59.95, one can be completely set-up with a super set of plug-ins and samples for less than 250 bucks.  That's pretty amazing.

Hear some examples of the Vintage Dry ADpak on XLN's website: here ..We especially like "Nightdriver" by Kungen & Hertigen.

Check out some more info about the Vintage Dry expansion:
