Groove Analogizer is an "Audio
Controlled Drum Synthesizer" for Windows. Working
like a vintage electronic drum tone generator the
percussion sound is triggered by an audio signal,
not by a MIDI message.
Groove Analogizer loads as a VST
effect, usually in an insert slot, and features
three oscillators that can be triggered and shaped
by the audio input. A trigger can be any kind of
percussive sound, both mono or stereo - it can be a
.wav file or another VST instrument for example.
For each of the three generators you
can choose left, right or left+right input - input
can be both mono or stereo. A band pass filter
allows you to select which frequency range of the
audio source will be used for triggering, so you can
separate hi, mid and low tones in the audio input,
allowing you to isolate different trigger patterns
from the same complex audio source. Groove
Analogizer also features Pre-Listening, so that you
can monitor which part of the source is selected as
The Sensitivity control allows you
to select the loudest triggers filtered by the band
pass - so that you may include ghost notes or avoid
