SPL Attacker overview

  • 1Description

The Attacker from SPL is a plug-in featuring part of the company's Transient Designer processor and basically amplifies the attack portion of an audio event. When using EQs to manipulate sound, the entire tonal aspect of the signal is affected without consideration for its temporal aspect. By amplifying the attack curves of a sound event, the mix can be made to sound more transparent.

The processing of drum and percussion sounds is the most typical application, but it is in no way limited to that category. Instruments can be mixed at lower levels while still maintaining their positions in the mix and occupying less space. An output gain control compensates for level changes after processing the signal, providing a simple and safe adjustment of levels while helping avoid any clipping.

Processor for amplifying the attack transient of any audio event
Emphasize the attack of a kick drum or a loop to increase the power and presence in the mix
Adjust the apparent "distance" of the microphone by simply varying the attack values
Works well for emphasizing picking guitars
Keyboards samples usually show a lot of compression, suppressing their natural dynamic - increase the attack values to re-gain a more natural response characteristic
Sounds occupy less space in the mix and appear more identifiable even at lower volumes
Add more punch and definition in post to sounds effect from any sample library
Outdoor recordings that suffer from poor microphone positioning can be optimize later
Support of mouse wheel control for adjusting rotary controls - place cursor over a control and move the scroll wheel to adjust the setting
