TransientControl from Metric Halo is a plug-in that allows for modifying dynamics in ways that are not possible using traditional compressors.
The plug-in provides direct access to the transient ("attack") and sustain portions of an audio file, and changes to either will result in more or less punch, or the smoothing out of dynamics.
Note! Requires an iLok 2 key if one is not already present on the system. A single license authorizes all specified plug-in formats.
