Virtual Instruments, Drum Replacement & E-Drum Modules

OVERVIEW

Industry Standard Drum Replacement

Steven Slate TRIGGER 2.0 is the audio industry’s not so secret weapon for getting big, professional drums sounds in mixes. TRIGGER has a phase accurate multi-layered triggering engine. This means that in one instance of the plugin, you can seamlessly trigger 8 stereo samples simultaneously such as a close mic sample, stereo overhead sample, and a stereo room mic samples. Or, mix many direct mic samples to develop your own custom unique sounds. This multi-channel triggering functionality 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, attack, sustain, release and independent levels.

*Requires An iLok 2 or 3.
