Drum Surgeon AUv3 Plugin by 4Pockets

4Pockets released Drum Surgeon AUv3 Plugin as a way to easily treat your drum dynamics!

Drum Surgeon AUv3 Plugin App Store Description:

DrumSurgeon is an AUv3 plugin designed for use in your favourite DAW such as AUM, Cubasis or GarageBand etc.

Drum surgeon is a dynamics / transient processor specifically designed for fine tuning your drums. So your drum sounds are lacking punch and lost in the mix? This is where Drum Doctor can really help by allowing you to literally shape and boost your kit to break through the mix safetly and without clipping.

The attack or onset of a sound is known as its transient. By controlling the level, shape and duration of these sounds, you change the dynamics of a drum track to achieve that perfect tightness, while boosting them to give your kick the right punch and snare the right amount of bite.

Use the saturation to overdrive your mix prior to shaping. This can drastically change the character of some drum sounds at the filtering stage. The single LP/HP filtering knob lets you quickly find the tone that suits combined with the 8 band EQ to define your sound.

Finally the intensity knob allows you to control the level of dynamics applied to your mix. Automate this in real time when you want to relax or accentuate your drum track during your song.

Splitting your signal into several frequency bands and running this on each band has massive potential, not only for noise/reverb reduction, but also for emulating any variety of vintage sounds. Using tube saturation on any of those bands also seems like a very sweet way to get a huge variety of textures. I'm just speaking theoretically here.

When I listen to vintage recordings, I have this idea that this equipment seems to compress differently at different frequencies. And the distortion is so much more bubbly and weird than it is with a simple circuit. Hard to say if ALL that could be simulated, but this seems to offer quite a bit of control for that kind of experimentation-- not only to simulate something old, but to create something new.
