I didn't see the last vid, but I was watching a vid on Slate Trigger yesterday. They pull up the dry, I'm thinking, "yep sounds like a kick drum, cool...they just need to add a little more lows on it".
Then they setup the triggering, pull up the Slate kick...my initial reaction: "it's that f*cking annoying sound!".
I'm not against the concept of replacing or augmenting drums though, especially when it's a genre where it sounds pleasing.
I usually just use Logic's audio->midi function. Sometimes it winds up with a couple things that need to be corrected after, but it's pretty good. If I was getting a lot of false triggers, I'd just gate the audio track, and then convert to midi.
PT still doesn't have this built in, right?
