Auto-Align 2.0 and New Triggering Engine

A collaboration between WaveMachine Labs and Fraunhofer (inventors of the MP3 format) has resulted in a revolutionary new alignment algorithm. Drums hits are perfectly aligned and sample accurate. Drumagog now has the most accurate sample alignment algorithm available anywhere. Drumagog's already powerful triggering engine has been improved to more accurately track the most demanding drum tracks. Even complicated rolls and flams are no match for Drumagog 5's new triggering engine.

Room Samples

The Gog sample format has been extended to include room and mic samples: Simply dial in the amount of room desired using the new mixer interface. Up to three room or alternative mic samples can be triggered from a single drum hit. All room and mic samples maintain a phase-lock with each other. Drumagog 5 comes with updated Gog samples to take advantage of this powerful new feature.

Auto Hi-Hat Tracking Platinum

Drumagog 5 automatically detects hi-hat pedal position (open/closed) and adjusts the samples accordingly. Hi-hats are now easy to replace, accurate, and faithful to their original articulations.

Plugin Hosting Platinum

Open virtual instruments inside Drumagog 5 for unlimited sounds. Plug-ins such as BFD2, Superior Drummer, Kontakt, and more open directly in Drumagog for easy access to a virtually unlimited library of samples.

Cutting-Edge Triggering Technology

Drumagog's advanced triggering engine makes drum replacing a breeze. It accurately tracks the incoming audio and replaces even the most detailed drum nuances with ease. In addition to the basic controls to adjust input, output, and triggering parameters, Drumagog features several controls on its advanced page for custom tuning of the overall triggering process. Drumagog 4.0 introduces a re-designed triggering engine for un-paralleled triggering accuracy. The following modes are available:

- Simple Triggering Mode: This mode is recommended if minimizing CPU usage is a priority. It works well for all but the most difficult tracks.
- Advanced Triggering Mode: The advanced triggering mode provides the best triggering performance Drumagog has to offer. It features a smart algorithm which minimizes false triggering and maximizes sensitivity. It's particularly useful on difficult tracks.
- Live Triggering Mode: This zero-latency mode is designed for use in a live Drumagog setup. For example, when using Drumagog as an insert on the main console in a live concert performance, or using Drumagog as a "drum brain" for drum trigger pads. However, it doesn't offer the same triggering quality as the other modes, and is only recommended for use in situations that demand zero latency.

NOTE: The advanced and live triggering modes are standard in the Pro version only.

Multisample Support

Drumagog supports dynamic, random and positional multisamples for the ultimate in acoustic realism. Each instrument can contain several dynamic multisamples, representing distinct volume levels. Drumagog will automatically choose from one of these samples to match the incoming audio volume perfectly. Random multisamples are also supported, allowing Drumagog to randomly choose between two or more sets of samples of the same volume. Using random multisamples allows a level of realism previously unattainable with other samplers. In addition to dynamic and random samples, Drumagog also features positional multisamples, where different areas of a drum or cymbal are represented by different samples. All three of these sample types can be combined for a single sound resulting in a very complete representation of a drum or instrument. With Drumagog's advanced multisample support, even complex drum rolls sound realistic.

Visual Triggering

Drumagog includes a visual triggering feature that simplifies the adjustment of the triggering controls. A scrolling, real-time waveform display is shown, with the triggering controls (sensitivity, resolution) superimposed on top of the waveform. This provides a visual indication of exactly which incoming hits will trigger Drumagog. For example, the sensitivity control is represented as a horizontal line that can be moved up or down, while the audio waveform scrolls from right to left. As the incoming audio scrolls past, it's easy to see which audio impulses will trigger Drumagog and which won't. All the audio above the line will cause a trigger and the audio below it will be ignored. The incoming audio that scored a "hit" is displayed as a white dot, making it easy to see a history of which hits caused Drumagog to trigger.

Stealth Mode

Stealth mode is a powerful feature that allows all the original audio to pass through unchanged until the trigger threshold is reached. This is especially useful in tracks that contain both a snare and a hi-hat on a single track. Drumagog will pass the hi-hat through, quickly crossfade into the replaced snare sample when the snare drum is heard, then crossfade back into the hi-hat again. The whole operation is so seamless that often it's hard to tell Drumagog's actually on.

Positional Multisamples

Drumagog introduces a feature called positional multisamples. Drums can now be multisampled at different stick positions. This allows the user to "dial in" the perfect stick hit position when replacing drums. For instance, if a part of the song calls for a bell sound from the ride cymbal, the user simply adjusts the position control to achieve the perfect stick position.

MIDI Input and Output (on supported hosts)

Drumagog's MIDI feature allows triggering of external drum machines and virtual instruments like Halion and GigaStudio. The midi input can allow you to use Drumagog as a "drum brain" (for triggering from live drum pads).

The MIDI features are standard in the Pro version only, and only available on supported hosts

Advanced Sample Management

Drumagog's Samples page features a visual sample management scheme that simplifies importing and organizing of samples. Adding a sample is as simple as dragging and dropping it onto the sample box in the center of the page. Each multisample being used is represented as a colored rectangle within this sample box. During playback, the individual colored rectangles flash, indicating which multisample is being used for replacement. An "add from track" button allows the user to grab existing drums from the current audio track and import them into the sample box. Up to 48 multisamples are supported, and any combination of dynamic or random multisamples is possible (previous versions of Drumagog allowed only specific combinations of multisamples).

Dynamic Tracking

Drumagog automatically tracks the incoming drum hits and adjusts the volume of the samples it plays according to the volume of the original hits. Sometimes however, it's desirable to control the dynamics. Drumagog provides a dynamic tracking control that allows adjustment of how Drumagog tracks the dynamics. This feature can be used to add a solid feel to an overly dynamic performance without the side effects imparted by traditional audio compression.

Virtual Drum Display

The virtual drum display, or drum movie, presents a sophisticated means of representing a triggered response from Drumagog. Going beyond the standard simple blinking LED, a small window displays a movie of an actual drum being played in perfect synchronization with the incoming audio. This feature is particularly useful when triggered samples are being blended with the original source track. The image of a drum being struck is often more intuitive to the user than a flashing light, thereby making it easier to visually catch missed triggers when the sensitivity control is set too high. The virtual drum display does not adversely affect CPU usage since the movie is on a separate very low-priority processing thread. Audio playback always maintains priority.

Pitch Control
Drumagog's pitch control enables adjustment of the sample's pitch by +/-100%. This is a useful feature for tuning the drums to the accompanying tracks.

NOTE: The pitch control is standard in the Pro version only.

Pre-Triggering Filter

A flexible filter is provided to filter out unwanted audio from a track before triggering. For instance, a snare track might contain undesirable bass drum bleed. In this case, the filter could be set to highpass to only allow the snare audio to pass through. This technique greatly reduces any chances for mis-triggering when bleed is present on the source track.

Left/Right Hand Support

This feature allows Drumagog to automatically alternate between left and right samples (if the loaded gog file supports them), when it detects the original drummer's speed is fast enough to warrant an extra hand. This makes the drum replacement sound very realistic during rolls.

Auto Sample Rate Conversion

When this feature is enabled, Drumagog will automatically convert the sample rate of the samples being used to match the sample rate of your project.

VU Meters

Drumagog features accurate, responsive VU meters for both input and output levels.

Auto-Ducking

Sometimes it's not enough to just replace the drums on a track, as there are often other tracks that still contain bleed from the original drum. Drumagog's auto-ducking solves this problem. For instance, if a snare drum is being replaced, and the original snare can still be heard through the overhead tracks, Drumagog would be inserted into each of the overhead tracks. Then, the two overhead Drumagogs would be set to receive auto-ducking information from the main Drumagog instance on the snare track. Every time the snare plays, the two Drumagogs on the overhead tracks will automatically "duck" the audio by a set amount (usually 2 or 3 dB). This results in the original sound effectively being removed from all the tracks on which it appears, without affecting any of the other sounds on those tracks. The original sound is then replaced with the sample(s) by Drumagog. The combined audio sounds flawless.

Polyphony

Drumagog provides a choice of polyphony modes: 16-note, 256 note, or choke polyphony. Choke polyphony mode is useful for cymbals, while 16 and 256-note polyphony modes are great for snares and other instruments. Choke polyphony is also useful for replacing recorded drum machine tracks, as it allows for the original drum machine's feel to be maintained. "Machine gun" snare replacements used in dance and hip hop tracks can still stutter like the original.

GOG Sample Format

Drumagog introduces its own multisample format called GOG. In one GOG file, Drumagog packs up to 48 multisamples, and all associated settings. The GOG file format allows Drumagog users to author, arrange and save their own sample sets in a single file. This makes accessing and transferring samples between projects simple, and allows a user to permanently record in the GOG file all of the triggering information and parameters associated with a sample set.

Blend Control

Drumagog's blend control provides control of the mix between the original audio and the replaced samples.
