XLN Audio pulls the (Addictive) Trigger
XLN Audio introduces Addictive Trigger, a new drum replacement tool.
An "intelligent drum replacer", Addictive Trigger is based on XLN's new Audio Fingerprint™ and SuperStart™ technologies combined with some of the sounds and features of the brand's Addictive Drums 2.
Described as "an entirely new method for drum hit detection", the Audio Fingerprint™ system uses FFT analysis to identify drum sounds in a fast and accurate way, even through a lot of mic bleed or background noise in the source material.
SuperStart™ eliminates the need to set and fine-tune detection parameters by listening to the source material and automatically providing suitable detection settings, inducing a gain in time.
Addictive Trigger also ships with a lot of easily-tweakable presets tailored specifically for drum replacement. Selected from the Addictive Drums library, these sounds were recorded at famous studios like Fairfax Recording (formerly known as Sound City) and United Recording (formerly Ocean Way).
Addictive Drums 2 users will be able to use their favorite presets and ADpak expansion sounds immediately in Addictive Trigger without any need to convert or change any settings, but Addictive Trigger is said to also support most popular third-party drum instruments with the possibility to easily drag-and-drop properly formatted MIDI data out of Addictive Trigger to any other virtual drummer so as to begin working right away.
A VST, AU and AAX (32 and 64 bits) plugin for Mac OS X and Windows systems, Addictive Trigger is priced 149.95€. A free evaluation version is available at www.xlnaudio.com.
