Product DescriptionSlate Digital's Trigger is the next generation drum replacement VST/RTAS/AU plugin. Trigger has a phase accurate multi-layered triggering engine.

Or, mix many direct mic samples to develop your own custom unique sounds.

Phase Accurate TriggeringWhen using Trigger, you will hear tight, phase accurate drum triggering without unwanted mistriggers, flamming, or phasing. Kick samples line up tight with the original kick drums, snare drum transients align perfectly, and tom fills come out exactly like the original tracks.
Leakage SuppressionTrigger has the unique functionality to be set in a way that in can automatically be instructed to not trigger certain leakages on a drum track using its Leakage Suppression mode. Using the Leakage Suppression technology you can trigger a drum track with 100% accuracy even if this drum track has many loud bleeds from other drums.
Two Detecting ModesTrigger comes with two detecting modes, Live and Accurate. Live mode is geared for live on-stage triggering and has a close to zero latency engine. Accurate mode is the professional studio setting, which enables Trigger's advanced engine to replicate the original drum track with the most precise detail and natural velocity response.
