Been using this for a couple years on and off. I love that I can easily add my own one-shot samples, andd the tuning/attack/sustain options are really handy. However, no matter what I do there's an audible 100-200ms delay on the samples creating a really weird "flam" effect. I've tried pretty much every setting in Pro Tools and driven myself crazy trying to fix this. Like I said I've had it for a few years and gone through several updates of pro tools and this plugin, as well as my OS, without fail the delay is always there. Not a deal breaker as I can just render the track to audio and drag it into place, but I really wish I didn't have to do that every single time.

Ideally I would love to record my live kit but it's far too small to get good consistency with my room. I saw Dave Pensado using the Slate sampler on his videos and thought: "man, if I could get a rough live recording and trigger samples as my main beat, cool!". Enter drumXchanger. I knew very little about it, however, I got it on the winter promo for far too cheap! Man this thing is so simple and effective. I can replace parts with my own samples and what I do is set it on a bus and my drums to it. Now I have the sample running in parallel to the original and can run the plugin 100% wet and blend in to taste. Not a CPU hog and runs so well. Only suggestion would be an easier way to 'test play' samples when picking in my library. Thankfully I have labelled my kicks/snares/HHs well enough that sometimes the guess of which one will sound better is fun and gets great results. You will be very happy with this if your needs are similar to the above circumstances!
Yes,exist many tools in this direction, but DrumXchanger is very effective replacer for any kind of drum sound and very easy to manipulate.Thank you P.A.Team for great offers.

Me parece interesante ver cómo algunas baterias que quedaron con mal sonido en grabación van cogiendo forma en mis mezclas. Soy feliz
I’ve been a slate and drumagog user for their drum replacement for years and the spl drum replacer holds its own against them both and its ease of use is another plus..!! Keep up the good work...!!
Being a drummer myself, one might wonder why to use a drum replacer. Well, as I do a lot of recordings in my (drum)studio for third party clients sometimes they like the performance but would like to have another snare sound or so. So instead of having to do the whole track again I use the DrumXchanger to chance the snare sound. Also I've used the plugin to fix a problem I experienced with a bass drum mic after recording a complicated drumtrack where in the middle of the song the mic signal only produced a high click sound, not nearly a sound you could associate with a bass drum sound. Luckily I was able to use that 'click' sound in the DrumXchanger to trigger a bass drum sound. Problem solved!
DrumXchanger does what I was looking for, helped me to add that Xtra punch to my mix that somehow in the row of "making" had lost the bite, yes good to know that help is there when needed.
