Is this possible??

I'm getting some good (not great) drum recordings lately. My kit isn't the best and I don't have the cash to go buying a new kit. I'm thinking about getting steven slates drums but a thought came to mind.

Is there a way to trigger BFD with audio recordings??

Surely there has to be a way! I know drumagog will trigger a audio sample by looking at the dynamics of a snare recording for example so I know it is possible.

All it would take is a plugin that will convert audio to midi (and with a snare track for example it doesn't need to measure pitch, just program the snare channels "audio to midi convertor" plugin that it's output will alway be d3, send that the newly created midi channel to BFD and Bob's your uncle!!

Does such a plugin exsist???

hi,
drummagog has an option in the advanced page to send midi out, i send it out using its internal ( virtual ) midi port and then plug that into bfd. It sounds great as you can banance your own close mics with the room mics and cloe mics of bfd. Sometimes it can be tricky to get it to trigger as you want so it can be a good idea to choose a section of the track, run it on that and then record the midi to a new track, that way you can change the sensitivity etc for each section.

Also the drummer i play with bought some cheap pezio contacts and put them on his kit, he attaches that to a alesis d4 to send midi to reason for drum sounds, i presume that if you were to record the horrible audio from the contact mics you could use it to trigger drummagog.

When he want to play quietly he fills his drums ( toms and all ) with clothes and pillows and uses some home made cymbas and hats made from plastic pink frisbies with contact mics on, very cool.

All the best,

K

Is it possible to route the samples to individual outputs of the daw??

Can you please self made kits and samples? Or is it just one format?
