XLN Audio AD2 United Pop

Colorful polished drums that POP featuring a Vintage Leedy and Ludwig kit matured for more than 60 years recorded in legendary Hollywood studio

MFR# 1096-45

Product Description

XLN Audio AD2 United Pop is a document of the search for the ultimate pop kit and sampling it. The search landed XLN at United Recording Studio A at 6050 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. Created in 1957 and built to the exacting standards set by Bill Putnam (legendary engineer and founder of Universal Audio). Studio A has witnessed the birth of some of the most iconic hit songs of the last half-century. While the equipment has been lovingly maintained and updated over time, the actual recording rooms have remained untouched. Listening to the lush clear warmth of this ADpak you can understand why. After all, if it's good enough for Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, U2, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Radiohead, No Doubt, Queens of the Stone Age, and more.


Certain things just get better with age; fine wines, Miley Cyrus, and this Leedy and Ludwig kit. The years have been kind to these drums, drying out every drop of moisture and leaving them crisp, clear, and resonant. Yesterday's drums were treated with love to produce the kind of uncluttered sounds that are perfect for today's pop hits.

For snares the engineers went extra clean, giving you the choice between a Ludwig nickel over brass, and a 1960's Japanese copy of a Slingerland drum called Trump that's so crisp, XLN just had to add it to this ADpak.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
