FOCUS ON YOUR SOUND

Play Video PLAY

OVERVIEW

Transient Shaper is an incredibly flexible sound sculptor that gives you the ability to shape, manipulate and target sounds across their entire frequency range with a unique ‘Focus’ feature. Perfect for tightening drums, boosting bass hits, elevating instrument and vocal stacks or gluing separate sounds together, Transient Shaper is as powerful as it is intuitive.

PRECISE CONTROL
Frequency-Focusing Sliders

Transient Shaper’s Focus sliders give new meaning to the words “precise control.” Use the sliders to select the specific frequency ranges you’d like to process, or hold Shift when sliding to enable bandpass processing.

FLEXIBLE PROCESSING
Extra Tone-Shaping Tools

Transient Shaper lets you get really granular with your sound shaping. There’s a Warmth knob to add saturation to your transient, a Time knob so you can adjust the length of the transient being processed, and a Listen button that isolates the transient or tail of your sound so you can hear your changes independently and blend samples seamlessly.

MOST AUTHENTIC ANALOG
The Legendary Virtual Mix Rack

Transient Shaper joins the ranks of Virtual Mix Rack, our award-winning mega-collection of digital mixing modules and recreations of classic analog hardware. Virtual Mix Rack (or VMR) is home to a wealth of pristine recreations of famous outboard gear, so you can build and use your dream mix rack without spending thousands of dollars.

“Transient Shaper’s built-in clipping, monitoring, and timing features give me so much more control than other transient designers. In fact, just about everything sets this plugin apart from the rest.”

MATT WEISS

Akon, Ozuna, Andre 3000

“Transient Shaper is the quickest way to sculpt and inject vibe into my drums. What used to take three different plugins, Transient Shaper does with just three knobs.”

ANDROS RODRIGUEZ

Grammy-Winning Producer
Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera

GET TO KNOW TRANSIENT SHAPER

Transient: Adjusts gain of detected transients. Detection is level-independent.
Warmth: Dials in ear-pleasing harmonic distortion. ‘Warmth’ is independent of Transient Gain, so saturation is applied before the transient is boosted or cut.
Focus: Narrows the frequency range being processed. Also impacts the sidechain signal being used for detection.
Sustain: Adjusts the gain of detected sustain part, normally the tail of your sound.
Time: Adjusts the length of the detected transient or tail of your sound.
Listen: Routes specific signal path to the output: Transient, Sustain or Out.
Stereo Link: When “On”, a mono signal is used for sidechain detection.
Mix: Blends between dry and wet signals.
Makeup Gain: Boosts peaks of processed signal to match original level.
Safety Clip: Hard-clips the output to 0 dB FS to maintain effective gain staging at the expense of a clipping effect.
