real-time transient detection
flexible sample and synth engine
multi-layer patches with complex modulation
apulSoft apTrigga3 is an audio insert effect plugin that detects trigger events on its input signal which are used to add or replace sounds. It has extensive sample management features, flexible synthesizer layers with multiple envelopes and a modulation section that allows per sample modulation of most parameters.

apTrigga3 features an input filter section with a built-in frequency analyzer and an unlimited number of configurable filter bands to shape the input signal.

The plugin has various playback modes to play layers in sequence, selected randomly or simultaneously. Basic sample edits can be done right inside apTrigga3 and samples can be recorded from the plugin input to quickly capture multi-samples from microphones or synthesizers.

Use apTrigga3 to replace or mix drum sounds on single-instrument channels. Due to its zero sample latency, it is ideal for live drum triggering (using drum pads or microphones).
