Introducing TRIGGER, the next generation of drum replacement by Slate Digital. TRIGGER introduces new features and advancements not found in any other drum replacement plugin. At the heart of TRIGGER is a revolutionary new triggering engine with Slate Digital’s ADVANCED ALGORITHMS. The engine also contains the AMG humanization algorithm. AMG is a physically modeled triggering algorithm that allows the triggered drums to play with an extremely realistic and natural response. Even ghost notes and complex drum fills can now be retriggered with ease, naturally.
TRIGGER has a MULTI LAYERED triggering engine. This means in ONE instance of the plugin, you can trigger a close mic’d sample, a stereo overhead sample, and a stereo room mic sample, all at once from a single drum track! This allows the user to recreate the sound of natural drums with real multitracked samples. Each sample layer has parameters for customization such as velocity and dynamic control, sustain, and independent levels. Other features include positional sensing, automation for all parameters, MIDI in/out, visual hit detector, and 127 different articulations per sample layer.
SAMPLE ACCURATE TRIGGERING
When using TRIGGER, you will hear tight, sample accurate drum triggering without unwanted mistriggers, flamming, or phasing. Kick samples line up tight with the original kick drums, snare drum transients align perfectly, and tom fills come out exactly like the original tracks.
Trigger comes with two modes, LIVE and ACCURATE. LIVE mode is geared for live on-stage triggering and has a no-latency engine. ACCURATE mode is the professional studio setting, which enables TRIGGER’s advanced engine to replicate the original drum track with the most precise detail and natural velocity response.
STEVEN SLATE DRUMS
TRIGGER comes stock with a library of the industry standard STEVEN SLATE DRUMS drum samples. Elite mixers such as Chris Lord Alge, Mike Shipley, Dave Way, Jeff Juliano, Jay Baumgardner, Ben Grosse, David Kahn, and many more top names have relied on STEVEN SLATE DRUMS to help enhance the drum sounds in their mixes for years. All the samples in STEVEN SLATE DRUMS are recorded to 2 inch tape and processed with the finest in vintage and modern analog gear. STEVEN SLATE DRUMS include three sample layers including stereo room mic samples from the famous NRG RECORDING in North Hollywood, California.
Included in TRIGGER Platinum are drum samples from the new STEVEN SLATE DRUMS “Deluxe” series. The DELUXE series of samples are recorded with an extreme attention to detail with multiple articulations, and include mono direct mics, stereo overheads, stereo room mics from NRG RECORDING, and stereo reverb samples from the Bricasti M7 digital reverb. With SLATE DIGITAL’s TRIGGER, you can trigger all of these layers from one drum track, with one instance of the plugin.
