STOCKHOLM, Sweden—August 28, 2012— XLN Audio - makers of the highly acclaimed Addictive Drums™ software, release Addictive Keys™, a powerful tool for musicians, producers and songwriters. With its unique sound creation ability, smart workflow, fast loading times and high quality producer presets, Addictive Keys is perfect for any production style or music genre.
Addictive Keys is being released as a ‘Studio Collection’ bundle which includes the 'Studio Grand', 'Modern Upright' and 'Mark One' instruments. This bundle will be available worldwide throughout XLN Audio’s retail distribution network. Additionally, the individual instruments will be made available in XLN Audio’s own webshop with more instruments available in the near future. The Addictive Keys engine is included in all offers. While some may ask why a company so well known for their drums branched out to additional instruments, Lars Erlandsson, co-founder of the company, says that it was a natural progression for them: “XLN Audio is made up of musicians who happen to be
developers. We get excited about making products that we use in our own productions. When starting off on this project, the first thing we did was ask ourselves what interested us as a team and made us want to create. For us that was Addictive Keys. We didn’t look to the marketplace and see what space we could fill, we chose the route we wanted to go creatively and decided to make the best keyboard software possible. And we think we succeeded - some truly unique features make this not a standard piano plugin, but one that covers a lot of creative ground.” When asked if this meant that they were going to leave the drum space Erlandsson replied: “Absolutely not. Drums are our passion and what put us on the map. We just went 64 bit throughout our product range and have big plans for Addictive Drums.” In addition to the Studio Collection, a free version of the Studio Grand offers customers a way to try out the Addictive Keys platform, with the possibility to add one or more instruments as the need arises. Addictive Keys was released on August 28th, 2012 and sells for $149/149€ About XLN Audio XLN Audio is a music software company located in Stockholm, Sweden.
