Manual Installation Instructions

If you don't want to run our installer (PC only), we've included installation instructions and a link to a video.

For convenience, here are the instructions and the video link.

Video for Manual Installation:

Note: Our Addictive Drums freebie folder can be found in the “Other MIDI mappings” folder of your download. This arrangement mimics our paid product folder structure.

1. Copy our Addictive Drums folder into your Addictive Drums 2 “External MIDI Files” folder.

2. Open AD and choose “Refresh MIDI Library” from the Help Button menu. The AD help button is shaped like a question mark: "?". Please see the image below.

Hint: folder locations:

Windows example: Documents/Addictive Drums 2/External MIDI Files

To access the Library folder:

Open Finder, click "Go" in the top menu bar and hold the "option alt" key to make your Library folder appear in the Finder “Go” drop down menu.
