Slate Digital Trigger EX Drum Replacement Plugin turbo charges the industry-standard sample-triggering software such producers as Chris Lord-Alge, Mike Shipley, and Dave Way swear by. With one instance of this nearly universal plug-in on your drum track, you can trigger up to eight stereo samples – all with freakishly accurate phase alignment. Trigger 2 EX’s unique Leakage Suppression function ensures absolutely precise sample triggering, easily separating ghost notes from mic bleed. What’s more, Slate Digital Trigger 2 EX doubles as an amazing live drum module.
Digital Trigger 2 EX Drum-replacement/Triggering Plug-in at a Glance:
- Multisample triggering provides you with richly detailed and customizable sound
- Perfect for studio drum replacement and live sample triggering
- Packed with premium drum sounds from Stephen Slate’s standard EX instrument library
Multisample triggering provides you with richly detailed and customizable soundSlate Digital Trigger 2 EX’s multilayered engine lets you get the most out of one instance of the plug-in by triggering up to eight stereo samples simultaneously. That means you can trigger a close-miked sample, a stereo room sample, and a stereo overhead sample – all right from the same drum track to get the perfect blend of direct and ambient sound. And each sample layer lets you customize velocity, dynamic control, independent levels, sustain, and more. Trigger 2 EX even features positional sensing, a visual hit detector, and 127 different articulations per sample layer, providing you with great-sounding, tight, sample-accurate drum tracks.
Perfect for studio drum replacement and live sample triggeringArmed with two detection modes, three latency modes, MIDI control capability, and a brilliant Leakage Suppression mode, Trigger 2 EX is more than capable of handling both studio drum-replacement work and live sample triggering alike. In its highly accurate higher latency setups, Trigger 2 EX provides you with phase accurate drum triggering free of unwanted mistriggers, flamming, or phasing. And with latency as low as 4ms, Live Mode lets you tap into Trigger 2 EX’s amazing sound library for real-time performances.
Packed with premium drum sounds from Stephen Slate’s standard EX instrument libraryThe EX instrument library included with Slate Digital Trigger 2 EX totally raises the bar for “basic” drum sample libraries. This sample library includes 10 snare drums, nine kick drums, and three sets of toms, all of which include hundreds of individual 24-bit samples to provide you with realistic expression and dynamic range. Highlights of the Trigger 2 EX instrument library include the deluxe Old Zep kick and snare as well as the ToneDef kick. And thanks to the Trigger lossless sample compression, you get all of this, without giving up precious disk space.
