Any Addictive Drums users in the house?

I picked up the Custom bundle and am thinking about which Adpacks I want.

Drum sounds I really like are 70's rock (Zeppelin, King Crimson, early Van Halen) and mid 90's early 00's alternative with really cracking snare (Smashing Pumpkins, Blink 182, Mars Volta)

Based on the demo sounds I think I like the Retroplex for the 70's and either Fairfax 1 or United Heavy for the 90's-00's

Yes, those two for the genres you want seem to be the ticket, but personally I love Vintage dry, has a lot of vibe going for. Also "Indie" seems like an obvious choice for 90's 00's sound.

Fairfax 1 and 2 cover a lot of ground. Black Velvet is also very versatile. I had Retroplex but never actually used it. It never felt right to me. It's very specific sounding if that makes sense.

I have Retroplex and never use it, sounds too plastic to me if that makes sense

Fairfax 1+2, Black Velvet are good IMO
