Transient tools have become big business in the plugin world. I believe the SPL version was one of the first with many coming along very shortly after. Most of them just dealt with the whole signal. Softube has decided to give you more control with the all new Transient Shaper.
Transient Shaper was announced and demonstrated at the recent NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. With its dual band operation, Transient Shaper goes beyond what one might expect from a transient tool. The dual band feature allows the user to set the Transient Shaper to affect only the treble or bass portion of a sound—separately for the Sustain and Punch parameters—and leave the rest untouched. This opens up a new realm of possibilities.
Transient Shaper is priced at USD 99 on Softube’s own web store, with a list price through authorized Softube dealers of USD 89. A fully functional 20 day demonstration license can be obtained through Softube’s web site (requires a USB iLok dongle).
Transient Shaper is available for both Mac and PC in the VST, VST3, AAX (native and DSP) and AudioUnits formats, both 32 and 64 bit.
