After an intense public beta phase Accusonus and Plugin Alliance have announced the V1.1 release of Drumatom, a software application 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.
V1.1 is the first official release of Drumatom. If you are already using the public beta you should download the 1.1 update now.
Drumatom is not a plugin. It is a stand-alone Mac OS X and Windows program and is the first microphone leakage suppression tool for multichannel drum recordings, according to Plugin Alliance. It is based on the patent pending Advanced Audio Analysis - A3 technology by Accusonus from Greece.
With this software tool every sound engineer can now use compressors, EQs and creative effects in new ways. Separated, clean tracks. No more gates, triggers & samples required. Boost some highs on the snare channel without getting harsh hi-hat crosstalk. Put reverb on rim shots, mix hot and panned toms without phasy and harsh cymbals.
No drum samples and triggers required anymore to get punchy drums, but if for any reason you decide to exchange drum sounds (for example with the SPL DrumXchanger) you can do that easier with Drumatom as well. Since the drum tracks will be virtually free of crosstalk after you process them, triggers will react much more reliable afterwards.
