The Kick drum is an important part of the mix that is often hard to record, hard to play consistently, and hard to tune. This is where replacement with samples can come in handy.
In this puremix.net exclusive, Andrew Scheps shows you a few ways he uses drum replacement to enhance kick drums in his mixes.
Watch as Andrew:
Blends the sample with the original recording
Sets up replacement programs such as Drumagog, Apptrigga3, Battery and Massey DRT
Converts audio to MIDI and triggers samples via Battery
Edits the velocity of the MIDI using Real Time Properties
Explains the pitfalls of leaving trigger plugins running live inside of your session and shares his bulletproof method for archiving samples with your sessions.

More than the iconic silhouette and hip demeanor, Andrew Scheps is an underhyped educator.

Thanks for this Andrew! I've always wondered how to efficiently get clean, accurate triggering in busy material without painstakingly running through every single transient zoomed into every single drum mic, but Massey DRT seems to hit the nail right on the head. I can't believe I've never heard about it!

I am a Logic use, so selfishly, I would like to see it in Logic. However, I admire Andrew and his endless knowledge.

Nice tutorial! Just wish it wasn't Pro Tools centered. The Massey option looks really nice, but it's Pro Tools only. I'd love to hear about something that works similar in Logic or Luna. Fab's team will have to consider this for their next plugin!

Thanks for the vid! It would be great to learn something about pitch shifting kicks and snares, when to do it and when not.
