SPL® Transient Designer
SPL® Transient Designer
Does the job. There are different versions out there but I went ahead to UAD because I have trust in the company that they can and always will deliver great results.
as an owner of two hardware transient designers I can only say:
I will probably never use the hardware version again. Very useful plug-in,
for many purposes; for drums and/or to compensate or modify compressors
used on any instrument bus.
great on drums!
I really like using this plug in to shape my drums while I record in Real time with the Apollo, you can change sustain and attack... so you can change the character of your kit just with a few tweaks....totally awesome!
SPL T.D. lethal weapon
SPL T.D. is AWAYS inserted in my DAWs channel drums strips. I don't even need to play too much with sampler envelopes. Hard or smooth I always find the perfect impact for my rhythm section.
UAD is forever!
Great tool to have!
I have used this plug in subtle and extreme ways with great results! Nothing else really does what this thing does!
It can fix "some" bad recordings, bad performances, add sustain (dead toms), tame sustain (ringing toms), etc...it has saved me more than a few times!
It is also great in a sound design context esp. in extreme settings!
Ein sehr interessantes Plug-in, absolute Empfehlung für die Drums!
A drummers friend.
This is my first UAD plug-In, and definately not the last. It is so simple to use, and very efficient on the right sources. My drums are recorded in an extremely small room, and this thing really helps me to pull out the best of them. By changing attack and sustain I can manipulate the most important tracks to get the right sound. And some of the presets are very useful, like the fierce click on the kick drum, and gentle snap on cybals. Worked also well on a bass-track , to shorten the notes.
Simple and efficient
This is the lethal weapon if you have some transient issues or want to reshape your track. Absolutely indispensable.
I seriously do not know what I've ever do now on kick drum without the Transient Designer, and don't know how I ever got along without it. I guess ignorance is bliss...! But soon as you try this on kick (as well as other drums etc) there is no way you'll ever turn back!
unique and effective mixing tool
This plugin helps to effectively situate your instruments in the mix without using compression or eq! Great for defining articulations.
Ok, this is a great tool, make it bigger or trim it tight. Snare needs more it will do it, snare to big, need it tight and short, done. Bass to much, trim it in tight even vocals. You now how great this tool is when you mix. So till you get one you just don't know, get one and you will know. You know magic when you got it!
Such a unique plug-in
I'm a producer and engineer of harder dance music and more recently EDM. I'm new to UAD, with this being my first purchase and what an amazing purchase it turned out to be. I got the plug-in on recommendation and after reading the reviews and now I can see why it is praised so highly. Since having it, it has appeared on many of my drum tracks. For kicks, snares and the like this can really perfect a sound that's almost there but not quite. It's unbelievable listening to the results that this plug-in has such few controls. Highly recommended.
It just works.
If you're familiar with the hardware version of the TD, you'll feel comfortable right away with this plug. It responds just like the hardware, which is awesome.
This does exactly what it says on the tin ,,,, no artefacts unless you go crazy with it.
So many uses for this, considering there are only three controls..... wow.
Transient control or Compressor?
Compression can be a nightmare. I've tried so many with my Bass Guitar and only came up with one that worked in live situations and the studio to fit my style. This Spl Transiet Designer would have been a God send back in the day. It makes things sit, push, or pull in the mix without hearing any pumping or sacturation. Transients easy to control, using only sustain/attack controls.
It can turn a dead Drum kit into a huge room mic kit by adding sustain or deadening the ambience by decreasing it. Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums, it's littered all over my current mix. Transparent, easy to use, a great tool!
Must have for drums!!
After trying the demo I had to get the transient designer. If im tracking drums its getting used every time. In combination with good miking this kills the gate/ expander headache. Great product.
Very special tool
This little helper is great. But although it only has three knobs it is incredibly versatile. Guitars or vocals you can give it more presence or use it as a quite strang effect.
Il plugin funziona egregiamente. È molto efficace sulla voce femminile e sui fiati. Trasparente è cristallino, marmoreo nell effetto presenza della voce.
tame those transients
I recently had to mix a recording of a band where the snare wasn't captured well and came across like a small toy drum , the spl Transient Designer worked great and enabled me to add more sustain to each hit with easy to use controls.
awesome tool .
I also used it on a very blown out bass guitar and was able to regain alot of the individual note definition by reducing the sustain on the transient designer.
easy to use great purchase.
Must have, it's extremely useful!
This thing often works better than a compressor. Essential tool for shaping the attack and sustain of any signal. I use it must often on kick and snare, or to bring some extra life or melowness into a guitar part. This thing dwarfs the free plugins out there, it's a major difference.
