kiloHearts have announced the release of their new plug-in and snapin for Multipass and SnapHeap, called ‘Transient Shaper‘.
Transient Shaper offers an alternative take on processing the dynamics of a sound, working on the rate of change of the signal level rather than the signal level itself. This not only makes it able to react very fast to input sound, but also makes it consistent regardless of input gain. The result is a 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.
Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but it’s not always the right tool for the job. 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!
