Love mixing but hate cleaning up mic bleed from drums? Want to spend time processing and making the drums shine instead of hunting and clicking? Well you need Drumatom. This new standalone software available on PluginAlliance will make removing mic bleed seamlessly and painlessly through their patented technology. The best part about this software is that it doesn’t remove ghost notes and other rhythmic artifacts.
After an intense public beta phase we are pleased to annonce the V1.1 release of DRUMATOM. DRUMATOM is the first and only software that can help you reduce the crosstalk captured by microphones when you record drums with multiple mics without the use of noise gates, filters etc. Hear your drums as punchy and real as never before.
V1.1 is the very first official release of DRUMATOM. If you are already using the public beta you should download the 1.1 update now.
When we first demonstrated the alpha version of Drumatom, we found that we had a problem explaining what it’s all about. Explaining a completely new type of processor can be difficult! Well, let’s start with what Drumatom is NOT: Drumatom is not a noise gate or a drum replacement tool! Drumatom is a novel stand-alone application that can drastically reduce microphone leakage in drum recordings, based on patent-pending technology. In any case, your ears will do a much better job in deciding what it is. Please download the fully functional demo and listen for yourself!
Whether you call it microphone bleed, spill or leakage, it’s a thing that sound engineers have learned to live with since the 60’s, when multitrack recording technologies started spreading around the globe. It might not be an issue for most instruments, but as far as multichannel drum recordings are concerned, leakage is always there in every close-mic. Sound engineers go to great lengths to ensure that leakage is reduced, or turned into something “usable”. Most of the times, a sound engineer has to resort to using a simple time-domain switch (a noise gate) or a drum replacement tool. Noise gates might not always work and when they do, they often mess with the signal’s transients or eat away at the decaying portion. Drum replacement tools can be very helpful, but they are doing what they promise: they replace the drummer. Drumatom is a new option, one that gives you the opportunity to work with the sound that you so carefully recorded, helping you preserve the personal style of a human drummer combined with the unique sound of a well-tuned drum set.
