We're happy to announce a new set of free MIDI loops from Addictive Drums! These files are properly mapped and formatted for AD. They will appear in the 'Beats' window so you can play, filter and drag-and-drop into your music software.
Compatibility: Addictive Drums versions 1 and 2.
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.

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
Mac OS X example: <user>/Library/Application Support/Addictive Drums 2/External MIDI
NOTE: The <user>/Library folder is hidden in OS X 10.7 or later.
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.
Viewing the Loops in Addictive Drums 2
To view our loops in AD2, go to “Library” and select ‘Groove Monkee Freebie AD’. You should see something similar to the image below.
