I find myself in the position more and more often to want to replace/trigger snare and kick-drum to get a more punchy sounding mix of the drums, make all hits more equal in power, and make it easier to get a good overall sound from the kit.
I have a few favorite snare and kick samples I have made that I currently have to manually insert for each hit (which takes waaay too much time!!!), and then mix up with the original sound of the kits snare and kick. I´ve been trying to look into the possibility of buying somekind of equiptment or software to do this automatically, map the midi info of the hits or something like that... and D-Drum and other names have been dropped - does anyone here have any tips on something good to serve this purpose???
Is it possible to get some sort of sensor-type thing like the ones from d-drum and use my own samples as the trigger-sound?? If I use some sort of sound module with triggers, can the sound-replacements/sampled hits be changed after tracking or any time in the mix?? Or do I have to choose the kick or snare before the tracking beginns?
Could I possibly get some sort of machine (sound-module) which I could send the waveforms (for exampl. snare/kick) from a physical output on protools and then back into the daw and record the triggered samples on a new track..??
I am in dire need to aquire this sort of equipment asap, so any comments, tips and advise on this would be well appreciated!!
