Building on the immediate success of Duende, Solid State Logic have introduced Drumstrip, a drum processing plug-in for Duende.
Hereâ€™s the lowdown in their own words:
The secret to making an average drum recording sound incredible can be elusive. It takes the right combination of processors, with the perfect sonic character, in the correct configuration and tweaked in the right way. Drumstrip takes drum sounds from ordinary and average to vibrant and exhilarating in a few quick, easy steps. Plug in, switch on and experiment. Drumstrip handles the hard part, putting the right selection of fantastic sounding processing tools in your hands in an instant.
With Drumstrip, DAW users can attain increased presence, clarity and detail in their drum tracks; reduce spill in individual tracks; restore natural brightness; achieve greater perceived loudness; shorten or lengthen the attack and sustain of percussive signals; tighten up booming toms; make kicks and snares stand out in a mix; and parallel compress room mics.

Transient shaper with Transient Invert to bring the attack phase of your drums to life
Transient Shaper Audition enables you to isolate and monitor the effect of the Transient Shaper
â€œOver-Easyâ€� soft ratio compression characteristic for smooth transitions
