Addictive Trigger

When creating Addictive Trigger, we developed smart new technologies (Audio Fingerprint™ and SuperStart™) to make drum replacement easy and painless. Then, we combined these new technologies with some of the best sounds and features from Addictive Drums 2. The result is a fast, accurate and fun way to raise your live-recorded drums to a whole new level.

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.

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.

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 presets 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.

A Complete Solution

Addictive Trigger works all on its own and does not require any additional software to provide world-class results. Just fire up the plugin and you're ready to go. Accurate detection and outstanding sounds are included in the box.

Plays Nice with Other Drum Software

Addictive Trigger supports most popular 3rd party drum instruments as well. You can easily drag-and-drop properly formatted MIDI data out of Addictive Trigger to your favorite instrument and begin working right away.
