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 (what you're looking at right now) comes with samples straight from Steven Slate Drums EX, while Trigger Platinum 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.Steven Slate Drums Trigger EX Drum-replacement Plug-in Features at a Glance:
