UVI release Drum Replacer, a realtime, program-adaptive, drum replacement utility giving users feature-rich component separation and triggering with exceptional ease-of-use. Utilizing machine learning-based analysis with realtime separation, Drum Replacer helps you easily remove bleed from drum recordings, replace drums in a mix with your favorite samples or VSTi, add precisely timed sub-bass, layer existing drum sounds, and much more. Drum Replacer is available now at an introductory price of $59 / 59€ through June 30th (regularly $99 / 99€).
Drum Replacer works uniquely by analyzing incoming audio and creating spectral models of each discrete component it hears (up to 5 + 1), feeding only the desired ones through to a customizable trigger detection circuit. With up to 8 internally-hosted audio samples or VSTi, these triggers can be used to generate anything, from replacement drums using your favorite samples or plugins, to creative mixing applications like reinforcing a hit with sub-bass, extracting specific sounds to side-chain other processors, and more. The internal sounds can be triggered in various ways from all-at-once, to more dynamic modes like sequential, and random, allowing you to easily introduce variety.
Setting up new sounds is a breeze thanks to an integrated browser; quickly locate local files and plugins and tag those commonly-used as favorites, then configure your plugins using their native interfaces. Samples can be quickly shaped with an AHD amplitude envelope, fade-in/out handles, and +/- 48 semitone tune control. One-click gain and pitch matching help you maximize correlation and blending with your source material, while the positive and negative time delay and a layered graphical waveform display help you perfectly time your new sounds to the input (even pre-triggering them!).
A large graphical display helps you fine-tune detection, while comprehensive metering of all internal tracks and triggers are visible in both the mixer and edit tabs. Presets can be saved of individual track configurations, or of all 8 tracks. Meanwhile each track has a custom name field to help you mitigate complexity, and ease the process of working with unfamiliar or older projects.
Focused, smart, and easy-to-master – with huge potential for creative mixing and remixing applications – Drum Replacer is a fast and reliable tool in any production environment and for users of any skill level.
Drum Replacer is compatible with current versions of all major DAWs on both Mac and Windows platforms (VST, AU, and AAX). A single license includes 3 activations that can be used on any combination of individual computer systems or iLok keys. A free 15-day trial is available!
