American pro audio software company, Plugin Alliance LLC, has proudly welcomed aboard digital audio technology start-up, accusonus, as a partner brand.[one_half last=”no”][dropcap]B[/dropcap]ased in Patras, Greece, the global team of engineers and qualified scientists at accusonus have developed ‘drumatom’ – a new advanced tool that aims to reduce microphone crosstalk in multichannel drum recordings. The standalone software application (available for both PC and Mac) allows users to adjust, reduce, or eliminate leakage in previously unimagined ways using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence.
Sound impressive right? The drumatom is in fact based on patent-pending Advanced Audio Analysis – A3 technology to cleverly combine progressive principals of acoustics, signal processing, psychoacoustics, and music theory.
Put simply, accusonus truly thinks it’s about time the phenomenal power of contemporary computing was heartily harnessed to trumpet the return of natural, great-sounding drums. drumatom does just that — with workflow that compliments the advanced algorithm that lies at its heart for the benefit of all by ably balancing speed and simplicity: simply launch drumatom and load drum channel files (by dragging and dropping them onto the GUI or using the menu option) which will then be grouped to corresponding tracks; select the drum type for each of the channels from the drop-down menu if necessary (though drumatom does this automatically in most cases); click on the process track button (following which drumatom makes a processing pass); select individual drum channels and adjust leakage to taste using the focus knob to remove leakage and the fine tune knob to dial it back in; finally, click on the export track button to export the processed version of the drum group (or export the individual drum channels by clicking on the icon next to the file name).[/one_half][one_half last=”yes”]According to Plugin Alliance and accusonus the results speak for itself. Impressive enough to prompt Plugin Alliance CEO Dirk Ulrich to seek out the creators of this magical musical tool to take drumatom to the musical masses. Fortunately, Founder & CEO Alexandros Tsilfidis took to the proposed partnership, hence harnessing Plugin Alliance’s proven prowess without abandon as the first external software developer to do so — and a landmark move to boot.
accusonus had, however, already announced a September 2013 release date for drumatom before joining Plugin Alliance, and have had to temporarily delay this to allow the product to be integrated into the tried-and-tested Plugin Alliance license activation system. Plugin Alliance is currently preparing a drumatom tutorial video in its Neve large format console-centred recording studio in readiness for this high-priority release.
The newly-formed Plugin Alliance and accusonus partnership will be announcing an official release date for Q4/2013 at the 135th International AES Convention at Jacob Javits Center in New York City on October 17-20 where they will be presenting drumatom and its underlying technology (with both private and NYC studio-based demos being available upon request).[/one_half]
