Im currently messing about recording with a set of Arbiter Flats I got given and I'm looking for a decent bit of software to swap the dodgy recorded drums for samples of nice drums. I know better drums, better heads, better technique = better sound but I'm not really a drummer and I just want to have this set up for knocking things together that are passable.
I don't want to go down the programming route, its too much like hard work.
I know drumagog is a great program for replacing drums, but are there any other programmes that will perform similarly which are cheaper?
Except none of those do what he wants, which is to sample replace recorded drums.
I use Drumagog myself, it doesn't get used that often but it's a great tool for rescuing a poor snare drum or adding in weird effects (replacing a snare with handclaps or the kick with a bass synth for example). It is very flexible and extremely easy to use.
The only alternative that I know of is Sound Replacer but that is Pro Tools only.
There are long winded ways of doing it manually with detected hit points in most DAW packages. I read a cubase tutorial on it once and then bought Drumagog!
Pete, did you order drumagog from their website or did buy it through a dealer in the UK?
For anyone else reading this topic in a similar situation, I've been using this wee free plugin for a while now and its dead handy for some stuff, but a little limited dynamically etc.
