"Great Drum Trigger program for Pro Tools!"

There are no compatibility issues that I know of as far as our studio setup is concerned. I've only used this software on our Pro Tools 8 HD setup at our studio, so I don't know how it responds to home LE systems. The manual is pretty clear on how to use the software, in fact it's one of the most informative manuals I've seen in a while. It's certainly tedious in the sense that it is positively loaded with information, but that's a good thing as Drumagog is certainly a multi-faceted program. The setup was pretty simple overall. The functions of drumagog are really easy once you have them figured out.


I've never had an issue with Drumagog not working properly, in fact it's been remarkably stable. While it might take a little while to load, it's never more than 5 seconds or so. I've only been using Drumagog for a few months now but I feel as though I've been using it forever. It's definitely a quick performance, as in, I get results quickly.


While I definitely have always had an issue with people taking drum samples and using them to replace drum tracks, that's another issue for another debate. When it comes to the software itself, Drumagog makes that process remarkably simple. This is a process that used to take hours for an engineer to do just to finish one song.
The amount of samples of different songs are great, in fact they have such a wide variety that I feel there is something to use for everybody. Samples ranging from Motown to Led Zeppelin to others give you quite a variety. The simple replacing of waveforms make this really easy. While I'd definitely say that this is easier with some music than others, the fact is that so much music nowadays has relatively simple parts and the snare samples can be replaced easily, as can toms and kick drums, even cymbals. Not only do they provide samples of other acoustic drums, but you can provide electric and processed drum sounds as well.
While I have an issue with this when it comes to recording certain types of music, I'd certainly say sounds like this are necessary when recording certain kinds of electronic-based rock music. Fans of Muse and other groups like them would certainly find much to use here.
This software is expensive, so I'd say only purchase if a) you own a professional studio or b) you record a lot of acoustic drums, and wish to be able to switch back and forth between acoustic and samples. Otherwise I'd say just buy a drum machine or something, but if you need both, Drumagog is the way to go.
