Transient Processor is a dynamics processing plugin. The Transient Process allows transient peaks to be amplified or suppressed. Likewise the decay of transients can also be sustained or suppressed. Unlike a compressor or expander there is no threshold or ratio setting and you can choose to boost or cut the attack and decay parts of transients independently. Direct and simple controls, we like that.
Use it with high Attack settings to give extra snap or punch to drum sounds or with high Release settings to increase the apparent loudness or weight of percussion, vocals or any other sound where you would normally use a compressor. Unlike a compressor there are no thresholds or compression ratios to set, so Transient Processor is more forgiving and you will find it easier to achieve the sound you desire. Alternatively, use low Release settings to suppress unwanted noise or reverb in the tail of a sound. Transient Processor works dynamically with the input signal, processing only the attack and or release as you choose and will quickly become your indispensable go-to dynamics processing tool. Experimentation is key and abuse of the plugin is encouraged. Reap the sonic rewards! Split frequency
Transient Processor features a unique frequency bypass (‘Split Frequency’ control) to remove low frequencies from the Transient Process as these are known to cause a distorted or rough sound. The low frequencies can then be recombined later in the chain so you don’t lose any of the bottom end to you sounds.
The Transient Processor allows me to set the attack and release for transients such as drums, to really make them stand out and cut through. The controls are easy to use and there are meters on either side to show the incoming and outgoing signal levels. I've found I do not need to make drastic adjustments to most drums, but if I do, this thing has the power to make them. Overall a great plugin for shaping the sound of drums.
along side updating to FL 12.3 the new plugin which acts as a compressor is one of my favorites, it gives your tracks so much depth when using it i love that it is a more flexible and easier to use plugin as well
