DrumFix (Drum Replacement Software)

Recording professional quality multitrack drum performances is allways a difficult task. In an age when so much music is recorded in home studios with less than perfect accoustics, the temptation to reach for the drum machine is all to strong. What can be done when the performance is inspired but the quality of the recording isn't?

DrumFix is a stand-alone Windows based application which allows the percussive hits in a mono WAV or AIF file, such as a snare or kick drum track, to be replaced with the audio from another mono WAV or AIF file such as a professionally recorded sample. Velocity Maps can be created and saved independantly with upto 4 velocity layers so that all the accenting in the original audio file can be maintained. The Velocity Map can then be recalled later and applied to any suitable audio file. A collection of maps covering kick drum, snare drum and tom-toms are supplied. Facilities are provided for automatically detecting percussive hits in a file as well as identifying them manually.

DrumFix is not a plug-in. It is a stand-alone offline processing application. We believe that this is by far the best way of undertaking this kind of processing since realtime plug-ins can easily misinterrpret complex audio files and so give undesired results. Version 3 allows hits to be exported as a standard MIDI file and also supports AIF files.
