The Transient Designer has changed my working life.
Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers/Stadium Arcadium, 4 Grammys)
With just two knobs you can accelerate or slow down attacks and prolong or shorten sustain of all audio signals.
The Transient Designer provides a revolutionary concept for dynamic processing rendering controls such as Threshold, Ratio and Gain superfluous. The Transient Designer provides a very elaborated automation, so while the processing going on inside the box may be very complex, the user has to deal with just a pair of intuitive controls.
In nearly every aspect the Transient Designer is different from conventional dynamic processors such as compressors. You don’t need to know how the Transient Designer works in order to be able to use it effectively, but if you’re at all curious as to what goes on inside the box … read this.
