G-Sonique release their Transient shaping system+ VST for Windows 05/10/11
G-Sonique has released the Transient shaping system+ from the G-Mix series+. They tell us that it is not a dynamic processor that is controlled by input level amounts (like a compressor) – The overall sound is controlled and
shaped by its own dynamics and transients.
A PR person for G-Sonique had this to say,
"Are your drums or percussion sounding unprofessional, boring and flat? Were they recorded in poor acoustic conditions or just missing transients, punch or
energy? Or maybe it's vice versa and their sound is too sharp and aggressive? No problem! Transient shaping system+ is tool intended to fix most possible
problems with your drums or percussion and give them a fresh modern sound, punchy shape and adapt their envelope or transients to your requirements.
While Transient shaping system+ is primarily aimed at controlling transients of Drum or Percussion, it can be used on all instruments including guitars,
keys, vocals, synths." Feature Highlights
Transient control – long: algorithm for controlling and shaping transients "from the perspective of a longer period of time (in milliseconds)". Attack and release
knob for setting shape of transients/beat envelope and transient amount knob for setting amount of boosting transients/envelope shape, set by attack and
Transient control – short: similar algorithm to Transient control – long just aimed to controlling, shaping and boosting transients/beat envelopes from the
perspective of a short period of time (in milliseconds)
By combinations of short and long transient control you have full freedom to shape the transients / envelopes of your beat. For example: you can keep long
transients in your beat but with just lower volumes (by setting a lower value of transient amount on the long transient control module) and in parallel, add a
short and punchy transient boost by setting high values of transient amounts on the transient control – short module.
Input and output volume knob: similarly, as with an analog outboard you can affect overall sound by setting the level of input volume.
Saturation shaping of transient control – short/long module: if there are too sharp and intensive volume peaks / transients after boosting with TSS+ and you
don't want to compress/limit with additional compressors, you can transform the sharp shape of the transients into rounded analog sounding peaks / transients
with transient shaping control. Saturation shaping is not basic saturation of overall sound that adds higher harmonics as you know from vintage machines, it is
just saturation/rounding of the signal from the transient control module long/sharp by which are multiplied original transients of the dry signal.
