OK this is just a quick, stupid question before I spend $150 on this drum software to make sure I have the right idea about it.

I'm under the impression that it:
-will come with a VST plugin that I can use in Reaper
-will work in a Windows x64 environment
-I can drag and drop Midi beats I've laready made into Reaper and play them through Addictive drums

Am I right?

I apologise for the question, but I need to be certain and I can't find anywhere that explictly says these things.

That is 100% right my friend. Here is a song I made midi drums for, imported it to AD and did all the recording/mixing in Reaper.

I did exactly what you are expecting the program to do

EDIT: i use windows vista so i would double check that part
AMP:
Rocktron chameleon 2000
Roland GP16
Audio Technica wireless
Peavey valveking
Clydesdale custom case
GUITAR:
Indie super T black (modded with active and passive pickups)
Daisy Rock Rock Candy Special

yes, yes, and yes (mostly).

i run AD as a vst in reaper with no issues. i am running the x64 version of windows 7 and again, i have no isssues.

the only thing is with your last question. AD does not use the standard midi drum map, but there is a way to change it to use it. so you will have to change a couple of settings to make your pre-made files work. i have also heard that there are a couple minor differences between what AD calles general midi and some other programs do, so you may have a few tweaks even once you are using that map. not a big issue, but it is something you will need to be aware of when you start using AD.

Yeah, having the latest version (1.5+) is essential. It's now very easy to change to different mappings like General MIDI, EZdrummer, BFD etc etc. The electric kit support is great too.

Thanks guys, that helps.

I just ordered it so I suppose I'll have to work the midi thing out when it gets here.

Also, yeah, it was version 1.5.

Thanks again

I can't get the AD demo to work in Reaper x64 (Windows 7), it seems there's a whole glut of people with the same problem. No bona fida solution yet as far as I'm aware of for those struggling to get it working.

I use mine in Win7 x64 no problem. Professional and home edition. AD is a great program!

OK I've just started using it and I have a n00b question.

Using my old (crappy) drum software I would write the drum part in guitar pro5 and then export as a midi then import it into reaper and run the drums as an effect on the track.
This is working fine with AD except it's playing all the wrong drums as in it's playing cowbell where one of my cymbals should be and all the toms are coming out as (I believe) cymbals.

So my question is, is there a way to change this or am I going to have to start writing the drum parts in something else where AD recognises the format?

What would you guys do?

There should be a setting in AD 1.5 to switch it to GM (General Midi) mode. Click that

This is what we were talking about further up the page! In the older versions, you were stuck with a special mapping that was a total pain in the arse!
