Drum Replacement - the Smart Way

At Sweetwater, we know that accurate hit detection is critical when using drum replacement plug-ins. Sadly, many triggering technologies require much manual tweaking to be spot-on. XLN Audio has a better approach: Addictive Trigger uses a completely new method of drum hit detection called Audio Fingerprint, which employs FFT analysis to accurately identify drum sounds - even if there's mic bleed or background noise on the track. Dread the prospect of endless tweaking? SuperStart settings auto-adjustment saves you hours of tedious work. Fast and accurate, XLN Audio Addictive Trigger will change the way you work with percussion.

Spot On Triggering

Whether you want to back up a weak kick, shape up a snare, tighten up a tom, or just straight out replace them, this is a pretty handy go-to tool. You can achieve any great production sound from the kits provided and it can expand. It'll make you smile when you can just drop this in so easily and get great replacements or enhancements.

Good trigger software XLN

I tried 3 trigger software's. This seems to be the best.
