TRANSIENT SHAPER

Overview

Customize attack character with Transient Shaper

When you want to carefully tweak the punch of your snare, the ricki-ticki-ticking of your hi-hats or the snappiness of a synth line, Transient Shaper is the right tool for the job.

Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but sometimes this can be a bit cumbersome. This is where Transient Shaper shines, giving you very direct control over the character of both the attack and sustaining sections of the sound in a way that's simple to understand and tweak.

"I really love it!
I'm a visual person so being able to see the envelope helps me understand how the signal is being processed. This will become a part of my arsenal for sure."
Jake Stanczak - Kill the Noise

Parameters

Attack

The amount of amplification or attenuation of the transient.

Pump

The amount of attenuation directly after the transient, emphasizing the transient without increasing the level.

Sustain

The amount of amplification or attenuation of the sustained sound.

Clip

When enabled, the output signal is clipped to 0dB.

Sidechain

When enabled transients are detected based on a secondary input, but the effect is applied to the main input.

Speed

Higher values results in snappier transient modification, and lower values result in smoother curves.
