Centipeak releases ProTrig

Centipeak ProTrig

Centipeak has released ProTrig, a professional drum trigger plug-in for Windows.

ProTrig is an audio plugin which transforms realtime audio drums into midi notes which can be sent to any virtual instrument like Easy Drummer, Addictive Drums, Sample Tank and others.

Brand new technology has resulted in a lightning fast, ultra accurate audio triggering engine. ProTrig is the most sophisticated and advanced product for replacing/adding/enhancing drums.

No matter if you are playing on a perfectly rigged drumkit or just jamming on your kneecaps – ProTrig will do the trick.

ProTrig features

  • Advanced discrete difference-based algorithm for analyzing audio.
  • Hit resistance, interval and threshold are controllable settings which directly affect the algorithm’s operation.
  • Compatible with all MIDI-controllable virtual instruments.
  • Designed for real-time triggering. Latency as low as 2 ms with extensive dynamics and extraordinary sensitivity.
  • 6 ghost notes with seperate and customizable settings. Can be synchronized with the host-application’s tempo.
  • Powerful 8-band filter. Visually and numerically controllable.
  • Internal signal routing system. Filters are appliable to the output audio or only internally for the triggering engine. Eliminating cluttering sends and manual routing of the audio and the need for other filtering plug-ins.
  • Tunable output dynamics through the linear velocity compressor.

ProTrig is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC for $69 USD (excl. VAT).

really difficult to undrstand HOW can work with 2-3 or more different keys respose… Like…CUBASE >audio track with PROTRIG and one microphone connected >midi track , with protrig input and VST DRUM SET (like superior 2.0 or another) now…from PROTRIG is set on C1… like a BASS drum…and with the right gaine ecc..work. If you play your finger in the table near the microphone..you can hear th BASS DRUM VST ! but what must do, for now set B1 key , that is SNARE sound ? if I change protrig on B2…now my finger play the snare, and I loose… Read more »

HI..thanks!
So..You think for every sound must be assigned one audio track ,put inside VST proTrig , and setit with a different note…

like

midi track VST DRUM (superior 2.9)
audio1 >Protrak> c1
audio2 >Protrak> d1
audio3 >ProTrig> e1

like example c1(bass drum) d1(snare) e1(cymbal)

ofcourse midi track only one…

??? right?

I’v try but…also if you play with filters…for any finger play…audio 1 , 2 and 3…play togheter…
so is really impossible or difficult (a lot) to make P.TRIG understand “different” noise…for play different instruments…

IF you found any way how work this VST, is really nice…
i not found… any help around the net , explane this!

THANKS! yes..I think this is the way… but really confusion to make something… I think for make something nice…you need ofcourse a super computer , with a GOOD AUDIO CARD…with multi inputs ocourse… a good set of directional microphones… and before searching many things with differents note/noise…i think the best is play on really drums… With those equipment “MEABY” have sense to set filter on protrig and see if work well… with only one microphone…stupid things and fingers…are really impossibile!!! and I’m not the last for doit… SO..around the net..nothing explane this steps and make see demo with sense… ONLY… Read more »

Could help me to use the Pro Trig with Pro Tools . . .I’m trying to use the Pro Trig in Pro Tools along with Kontakt, I have a bookstore of Timbres legal drums.Using the Sonar also would work, because I use Sonar for MIDI recording.thanks

Thx, Ronnie! It works really great now. Maybe my new soundcard has something to do with it :o) (I also purchased the legal version with my own serial and a clean version of ProTrig as I’ve heard the pirate version was not any good, had bad accuracy etc)

I’v the original release with my personal password. I’ v try also the trial…IS IDENTICAL ! ..but CENTIPEAK have made a really poor manual, not examples , no help for usage. I just try hours but associate 2-3 different souds with 3 differents “noise” is a big, big, big MIRACLE… you MUST filter every 3 noise…but also with this , with ONE microphone is like impossible to have a good result… one noise…and play all the 3 sound togheters still 80% of the times… a good result you can have ONLY witn MULTI directionals microphones and a multi input card…… Read more »

Good Ronnie.. emails , ofcouse just send to Centipeak..no answers for now…I wait. Your test (tomorrow or hav you time..) is the GOOD NEWS , what i’m waiting !!! because one how WE must select and set , the filters and options inside this VST , for “one microphone set drum” and so make different midi note with different “noises” fo me it’s a big miracle. possible anc concrete or..not really? =) THX PS…Washington , sorry..but I’ m use only cubase , with PC and vst effects..

I read developers blog, the next version are coming very soon and will contain a feature that will make it possible to get different sounds depending of the velocity of the hit. That’s awesome.
