Transient Designer Plus from SPL is a level-independent, dynamic processing plug-in that can transparently shape the attack and sustain characteristics of sounds no matter their level, jet engine-loud or whisper-quiet, constant or fluctuating. Using only two primary controls, it's possible to increase or decrease in mere seconds the attack portion of a sound up to 15 dB, and simultaneously amplify or attenuate its sustain up to 24 dB.
The process can make trap drums slam harder, tame a ringing snare drum, or reduce excessive cymbal bleed into tom microphones. Increase sustain on soaring guitar solos, enhance crunchy pick strikes on electric guitar vamps. Make legato rhythm tracks pulse, or reshape reverb envelopes for a non-linear response. To automatically smooth-out operations, the output gain control is followed in the audio path by a soft-clip limiter, with the limiter preventing digital clipping with all but the most extreme settings.
Other features include a one-knob parallel mix control. Sidechain functions provide surgical, pinpoint processing, internal filtering, and a sidechain solo function allows for monitoring only the filtered sidechain signal, while sweeping the center frequency. And the external sidechain input can be used to create ultra-tight grooves. Undo and redo functions with up to 32-steps each make it easy to recover control setups accidentally altered.
Separate controls allow for +/-15 dB adjustment to attack and +/-4 dB adjustment to sustain
Soft-clip limiter helps prevent digital clipping when generously boosting attack and/or sustain
Internal sidechain filter sculpts the frequency response of the trigger signal to enable selective processing of audio elements embedded in subgroups, stems and mixes
External sidechain input enables processing of transients and sustain envelopes in audio path to be triggered by other sources or tracks
Sidechain solo function monitors the sidechain signal, aiding adjustment of the internal sidechain's bandpass filter
Parallel mix control adjusts the balance of wet and dry signals for fast and hassle-free parallel processing
Link switch links left and right channels in stereo configurations
32-steps of undo and redo
Four global setups can be stored, recalled and automated for instant changes to parameter settings across the entire plug-in
10-segment LED-style ladder meter shows the amount of gain reduction applied by the limiter
Signal-present and overload indicators aid troubleshooting to get a session quickly back on track
Four settings buttons allow for quickly storing and comparing four different settings
Mouse wheel control of parameters
