Accurate and Intelligent

During the research phase of Addictive Trigger, users around the world reported that accurate hit detection is absolutely critical when using drum replacement plugins. Unfortunately, existing triggering technologies tend to have shortcomings that require lots of manual tweaking and correction.

We endeavor to make products that are better than what is currently available, and we ended up creating an entirely new method for drum hit detection called Audio Fingerprint. Our new system uses FFT analysis to accurately identify drum sounds even if there is a lot of mic bleed or background noise in the source material. It’s fast, it’s accurate, and we think it’ll change the way you work with live-recorded drums.

What is Audio Fingerprint?

Typical drum replacement tools rely on rudimentary filtering and transient detection, resulting in many false triggers and missed hits. Audio Fingerprint solves this problem by using a novel FFT-based matching system. It is so accurate, it usually has no trouble detecting lightly played ghost notes from background noise while simultaneously rejecting mic bleed and other unwanted sounds.

In addition to detecting low-level ghost notes with great accuracy, our Audio Fingerprint system can also differentiate between different stroke types that are played at similar velocities (for example, sidestick and open snare hits). This lets Addictive Trigger play back the correct articulations of samples, even if the incoming source material has different kinds of drum hits with similar peak levels.

Superstart. Superfast.

Setting and fine-tuning detection parameters can be painfully tedious work. SuperStart eliminates the need to do this by listening to your source material and automatically providing suitable detection settings. In most cases, this is all you need to get accurate drum detection happening on your tracks. This lets you spend more of your time on creative things like dialing in the perfect drum sounds.

Addictive Trigger SuperStart

Super smart automatic hit detection

Once you have inserted Addictive Trigger on an audio track, simply click SuperStart and begin playback in your host software. Addictive Trigger listens to your track for several seconds, analyzes the incoming hits, and automatically sets a number of different parameters based on the source material. In most cases, this is all you need to do in order to have accurate hit detection happening on your track.

In the studio

World-class sounds right out of the box

In addition to the intelligent detection and workflow features, Addictive Trigger ships with tons of fantastic and easily-tweakable preset that are tailored specifically for drum replacement. Selected from the award-winning Addictive Drums library, these sounds are recorded at world-class, impossible-to-book studios like Fairfax Recording (formerly known as Sound City) and United Recording (formerly Ocean Way) and utilize some of the finest gear and most experienced ears in the business. Even if you already have nice drums and a great studio, we think you’ll still find a lot of inspiration and benefit from having these world-class sounds at your fingertips.
