Kilohearts’ latest addition to its kHs Toolbox is Transient Shaper, a new plugin that’s designed for dynamics control.
This enables you to control the initial transient and tail of a sound using the Attack and Sustain knobs. You can see how the envelope is being affected on a graph, and there’s a soft clipper option to control unwanted spikes.
There’s also a Pump knob that temporarily lowers the gain following a transient, so the attack is emphasised without increasing the gain.
Transient Shaper is available now from the Kilohearts website. It’s available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX and Reason Rack Extension formats and costs $39/€39. You can download a demo, too.
