When it comes to drum replacement, accuracy counts — and Slate Digital gets it. That's why they created Trigger from the ground up and designed it to be a one-stop drum-replacement tool that saves you time — and sounds better than the rest. And what else would you expect from Steven Slate, the guy the biggest pros turn to when they want their drum sounds to slam? Right at the heart of Trigger is a brand-new triggering engine loaded with Slate Digital's Advanced Algorithms, including the AMG humanization algorithm. What you get are triggered drums that play with unbelievable realism — you can even retrigger ghost notes and extremely complex drum fills.
So, how does it work? Trigger has a multilayered engine that lets you get the most out of one instance of the plug-in. You can trigger a close-miked sample, a stereo room sample, and a stereo overhead sample — all right from the same drum track. And each sample layer offers customization over such parameters as velocity and dynamic control, independent levels, and sustain. Trigger even features positional sensing, a visual hit detector, and 127 different articulations per sample layer — high-tech stuff that boils down to great-sounding, tight, sample-accurate drum tracks. Everything lines up and hits right with the original tracks.
To make the most out of Trigger, Slate Digital hooked you up with two modes: Live and Accurate. Use Live when you're onstage and need a no-latency engine. Use Accurate mode when you're working in the pro studio and need the most precise detail and most natural velocity response possible. But it gets better.
Slate Digital, of course, has the benefit of Steven Slate's unbelievable collection of drum samples — and when you choose Trigger, you get a bunch of those samples right along with it. Trigger EX comes with samples straight from Steven Slate Drums EX, while Trigger Platinum (what you're looking at right now) comes loaded with Steven Slate Drums Platinum samples. All of the samples were recorded to 2" tape, using nothing but the finest in vintage and analog gear. Whichever route you go, you can expect nothing but the finest sound quality from the guy that knows drums best — just ask a handful of the pros he's worked with: Chris Lord-Alge, Mike Shipley, Dave Way, Jeff Juliano... the list goes on.
Now's your chance to ratchet the quality of your drum sounds to that elite next level, without the fuss or hassle you've experienced in the past. Trust Trigger to handle your drums, so you can think about the rest.

A MUST HAVE for Drum Mixing
by JROD from St. Louis, MOMy boy Steven Slate never ceases to amaze me. I started off with SSD 3.5. Wow. Nuff said. Then I tried the Dragon. Awesome. Now I just picked up the VCC and Trigger Platinum. Holy smokes.

Trigger is simple to use. I use to use sample layering by hand. It took hours, but it seemed to be the only way to get each hit right. I loaded Trigger, duplicated my kick track in a new mix, selected a mix of about 4 kicks, BOOM! DONE and DONE. Sounded amazing. I still used the original kick but accentuated the hits with my customized sample. I didn't even have to read the directions. Simple and sounded phenomenal. NO PHASE ISSUES!!!
I can't stress this enough... BUY IT. I just finished my second mix with Trigger, and I've saved probably 4 hours of kick and snare sample layering with this thing. And, I got it at half price for the Black Friday sale.
Steven, you are the man! I'm a lifelong Slate fanatic. SSD 4 is next! close [-]

A new level of sound
by Michael Pierson from Jackson MIIn a perfect world we would all have amazing sounding rooms, a mic closet with a price tag equal to the national debt and every boutique preamp connected to the best outboard gear...but, most of us do... read more [+]n't. Thus (at least for me) the drums (the instrument I play) are always the weak link in the mix and its nice to be able to 'beef up' the tracks with a program that will grab EVERY little nuance you throw at it. Amazing tracking ability with TONS of editing options at a decent price point, its worth every penny plus a whole lot more. close [-]

by Johnny Ragin from Atlanta, GAThis is one of the truly revolutionary drum replacement plugins and is certainly the standard by which others must be compared. Let me first say that I'm not a big fan of complete drum replacement, my... read more [+] typical course of action when I have a drum sound that's a little lacking and no amount of EQ, comp, or any other processing seems to revive it, is to delicately place a sample underneath the existing sound to simply augment it rather than replace it. In my opinion there is no better tool for doing this than trigger. It's completely phase accurate so there's no danger of weird phasing problems like some other drum augmentation software. Plus with it's ability to create samples from WAV files, I can go back and re-record pristine samples of the drummer's actual snare which I can then reintroduce to augment the recorded performance. And if you're not in to recording your own samples like I am, this collection comes with a TON of good sounding samples. Yes, a lot of them are sort of "rock" sounding, but with a little tweaking and use of Trigger's incredibly easy sample blending features (up to six at once!) I can get a solid sound for most genres. All in all it creates an astoundingly full and deep sounding drum performance and one that (especially at this price) ANY studio can benefit from! close [-]
