New Music Gear Monday: Accusonus Drumatom Leakage Suppression Tool

For years engineers have learned to live with leakage between drum mics, even embracing it as part of the sound of the kit. There are those times when you want to the ability to control it better though, and that usually means resorting to a gate. Now there's another alternative with Accusonus Drumatom V2.0, which very well may be the first microphone leakage suppression tool.

Unlike a gate, Drumatom uses advanced signal analysis and process to determine the difference between the drum being hit and the leakage from another track. This can be used, just as an example, when you're working on a snare and a high hat, where the app will allow you to reduce the level of the hat from the snare track while preserving the snare sound.

With the release of Version 2.0, Drumatom can work either as a plugin or as a stand alone app that runs on either Mac or PC and works on AIFF or Wave files at sample rates up to 192kHz. You import your drums into the app, do the processing, then import them back into your DAW.

We've all had to struggle with getting a clean kick and snare so that any processing we add wouldn't affect another instrument. Drumatom can do the trick.

Accusonus Drumatom is available from the Plug-In Alliance for $299 with a 14 day free trial.
