Ddrum triggers

Post by shredmeister5000 » Sun Jan 27, 2008 8:27 pm

yo, i've been recording some metal bands recently and some of them have double bass drum sets and i only have 1 sure beta 52a kick drum mic and a POS cad kick mic, i usually get samples using the 52a and then make some gog files, then just use both mics as triggers. AND i was wondering...looking at the ddrum kick triggers online, i was wondering what kind of signals they triggers send, and if i could just plug them directly into my audio interface and then have drumagog replace them.

i would reallly apreciate any input on this anything what-so-ever

If you simply want to do a 100% kick replacement, the quality of the mic isn't a real issue.

All Drumagog needs to see is an audio input. Try a 57 and observe the result.

I tried this and it worked.

Yes, it works; the triggers are a little bit like a very specific mic, and produce a sort of click sound. Triggers work MUCH better than mics as a drumagog source as there's generally almost no bleed at all, so any transients can be 100% trusted to be actual hits. This is especially useful if the drummer uses a lot of ghost notes. I'm using DDrum Pro triggers on a project at the moment, and it's the best decision I've made for it so far.

i use the redshot pro triggers. dont waste your cash on the cheap ones with the 1/4 inch jacks.

you can run them into a mic pre on your interface. i do it all the time for the entire kit.

i also do 100% kick replacement so i just put a sm57 in the kick for reference on playback.

One thing that you might want to do when using triggers with drumagog is turn down the dynamic response to between 50% and 75%. This helps keep the dynamics of the performance a little more real sounding.
