What We Think Slate Digital Trigger Platinum is a must! Trigger sounded great when used on the inserts of mono drum tracks. But remember the 5mins to a better mix you did with kick drum low end, where you used a gate to trigger a 60Hz sine wave? We here at Front End Audio know exactly what it's like to be working with a budget while making gear purchases. The Ravenscroft Model 275 has unparalleled dynamic response and tone that will handle a wide variety of applications such as Jazz, Pop, and Classical and just about anything else you can imagine. Slate Digital is releasing new Trigger sample sets in Q1 2011 and admittedly has some catching up to do. More samples, an extra microphone position, extra velocity layers, and new features such as Silent Strikes and Muted Notes elevate the Ravenscroft Model 275 to a whole new level. The Full patch loads the Close mics by default. The Suppression feature alone is worth the price of admission and is simply brilliant.
Some of the mono drum sounds were close-miked and are very dry, while others employ additional overhead mics. Keep in mind that if you save a Multi with many sample groups loaded, it may take some time to fully load the library with your settings. Audition the sound of the instruments'' samples at each velocity layer by clicking in the plug-in''s main display with your mouse. Not being cheap or anything but, without buying it!! Best deal out there, especially when it's on sale. The ease of use is simply ridiculous. Controllers The section below mic mixing allows additional samples to be loaded as well as adjustments to pedal setup, polyphony and dynamics controls.
The graphic gives a good indication of the physical location of the mics during sampling. Also, Trigger''s color scheme for instruments selected for editing is subtle enough that I sometimes edited the wrong instrument by mistake. Are you working on a raw recording? This review was written before I could get my hands on Pro Tools 9, which now has delay compensation in the Native versions. Trigger doesn't adjust the polarity of its samples to match the original drum hit, so if you come across this problem when mixing the original hit with samples, you should invert the polarity of the source track before setting Trigger to work. So as to capture only the intended hits, while keeping the dynamic range as wide as possible, the input level slider should be adjusted so that the loudest hits are close to the full screen height.
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. All operations are on one screen, without tabs, right in front of me, ready to adjust. You set this up by putting Trigger in an aux track, then sending the drum part you're processing to the left input and a mix of the drums that are causing spill problems to the right input. This procedure works very well, though it can take a while, as you need to make separate level adjustments for each source of spill. Then save the whole enchilada as a multisampled. Does this plugin eat up system resources? Adjusting the filter can claw back a bit more separation where spill is causing problems, and although setting up Leakage Suppression mode can take a little time, it can improve the outcome significantly and achieve results where other programs simply give up. Although you do have deep levels of adjustment across a number of parameters, for the most part it works very well without a lot of tweaking.
ControllersThe section below mic mixing allows additional samples to be loaded as well as adjustments to pedal setup, polyphony and dynamics controls. The included drum sound library is also very impressive, while if you fancy making up your own drum sample sets, you can download the free Trigger Instrument Editor. Complete Sound Control The bottom corners of the interface contain the Stereo Width and Channel Flip functions, Tone control and Timbre Shift on the left with Reverb level and selection on the right. Trigger has two detection modes, designated Accurate and Live, and either may be used with or without Leakage Suppression. If you don't like your item for any reason, contact us within 30 days of receipt and we will authorize you a return authorization number no questions asked! The Detail value is shown as a horizontal line across the display, representing an absolute level below which no triggers will be detected. It doesnt get much easier that that! What''s most important is that Trigger is easy to use, provides rock-solid triggering, and sounds fantastic.
This is where you enable pedal features like una corda, half pedaling and, sostenuto and the mute strikes. Create and name up to 127 articulations for your custom instrument. They were all spot-on to the sample. It works well for music production as well as composition. There are some exclusions so check out our Shipping Policy page in the Customer Service section at the bottom of the page. The Leakage Suppression feature is handled by feeding the target track into Trigger 2's left input and the source s of the problem bleed into the right input - useful in ensuring that strong snare hits coming through the kick drum mic don't get misinterpreted as kick hits, for example.
The Platinum instrument library includes: 46 snares including 2 high-detailed Deluxe snares with adjustable overheads and 12 alternation hits per each velocity , 33 kick drums including 2 Deluxe kick drums , and 8 sets of toms. Qualifying purchase amount must be on one receipt. The drum library comes loaded with some presets if you want to grab and go, but I had more fun making my own. There are a few exclusion so check out our Returns Policy page located in the Customer Service section at the bottom of the page. With its phase accurate engine, extreme detail, natural response, multiple drum layers, and professional Steven Slate Drums sample library, you'll never have to worry about drums again.
The timing is very precise, but in this case it might be better to manually flip the polarity. However, when used on a very dynamic snare track, I needed to either automate the Detail control or use Leakage Suppression to prevent tom bleed into the snare mic from triggering snare samples during some fills. And the 60Hz trick is one volume only. The library contains five patches: a full patch in which all samples and mic setups can be loaded, and four separate single mic patches for quicker loading. As you shop, we'll only show you items that ship to Russian Federation. However, these samples are designed to layer well with the Z1 mono samples. Like most good ideas, it is so simple that you wonder why somebody didn't think of it already.

Just wondering, this plugin just a glorified sampler with a gate right, no disrespect intended I actually imagine this plugin to be very interesting and highly useful!! Each instrument multisampled drum in a Trigger drum kit can have a whopping 127 articulations, 127 velocity layers, and 127 alternating samples which precludes hearing the same sample triggered repeatedly. Thus, Everything Recording was born. Vintage King can help answer any and every question to help you make the right decisions for your sound. Trigger Platinum instrument library contains more than 2. In this mode, the blue waveform depicts the original track, and the red portions show where Leakage Suppression is taking place.
