A MUST HAVE for Drum MixingMy 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!

Best trigger plugin to dateThis is by far the best trigger plugin that I have used so far. Sample accurate triggering that just works rock solid. Highly recommended!

A new level of soundIn 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 don'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.

SO AMAZING!This 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 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!

Amazingly accurate AND up to 6 Samples at Once!So I will admit I was pissed off when my new SSD Platinum samples didn't come with .Gog files. When I purchased them that how I planned to use them. I had not even heard of trigger. I actually e-mailed my sales engineer to ask where the .gog files were. He told me about Trigger and that Steve himself had actually stopped by and given a demo and that it was impressive. I didn't really have a choice but to get this but am I ever glad that I did. This is so much better than using Drumagog and being able to use up to six samples at once (with independent levels, dynamics, attacks) and a several other great features such as being able to dial in specific frequencies to trigger, the sensitivity, amount of delay before it re-triggers, suppression and much more! It even comes with many of the best kicks snares and toms from the original SSD Platinum libraries. I know your happy with what your using now but you will LOVE this plug-in!!!
