  • Drumagog VS Sound Replacer???

    I don't have pro-tools, so I have to use Drumagog. But i was just wondering how it compares??

    What's the difference, really?

      When my band wanted to remix a couple songs from a few years back, Drumagog worked perfectly for replacing the muddy mic'd kick drum with a punchier, crisper (but still natural-sounding) sample. That was with Digital Performer or Nuendo, so it wasn't something very familiar to me, but the results were quite good.

        I have a bunch of tapes that I recorded when I first got an ADAT way back when, and I had some Radio Shack special mics to record with, so the drums sounded less than good (but I really liked the feel on the tracks.)

        Drumagog saved 'em - though I wish it was better at hi-hats, it has proven invaluable.

          So far, I've replaced kicks, snares, and toms (although not all at once), and it's done really well and sounded very realistic if you dial it in correctly, which is fairly easy. I don't know how it is on cymbals and stuff like that.

            Sound Replacer's UI is clunky in comparison.

                Not so good.

                But cymbals can be a pain in a lot of ways even outside of sampling them.

                  That's what I thought. Maybe it'd be okay for a crash or two? I can't imagine replacing things like high-hats. What a pain in the rear that would be on so many different levels. Anyway, what I do is when the drummer records here, I have them play only their crashes in case I need those for something.

                    Drumagog is WAY more feature-rich. Conceptually, they're similar, but you can do a lot more with Drummagog. Not to mention it comes bundled with some very nice samples, which SR doesn't. At this point, SR is looking pretty long in the tooth, and I'd recommend going with Drumagog.

                      I agree. I don't know the last time Digi updated SR but it needs one bad if they want to compete with Drumagog.

                        You can also use your own samples with Drumagog, although I don't bother. Their samples are fine.

                            Plus, Drumagog has a much cooler name. It kinda sounds like some H.P. Lovecraft penned elder god of the Cthulu mythos. Who plays drums.
