LVC-Audio has released Transector, a transient design audio plugin used to attenuate various transient qualities of an audio signal. Use it to boost the initial attack of various instruments, such as adding more crack to a snare or kick drum. Simultaneously, you can use Transector to alter the decaying portion of audio. This is useful in many situations, such as decreasing the decay of a vocal track, or reducing to amount of room ambiance in drum tracking.
Transector is a highly customizable transient designer that you can use in a variety of mixing situations, with a variety of sonic material, and as a creative tool. Although the default settings work in many situations, Transector gives you access to many advanced features. This includes:
- external side-chain controls.
- side-chain filter and solo controls.
- separate left- and right-signal transient processing.
- mid/side mode with adjustable transient gain amounts.
- transient metering.
- three separate transient gain stages (attack, sustain, and release).
- input metering, output metering, and adjustable waveform history display.
Transector is available as a demo plugin, and can be purchased for $31.54 (or at a discounted price if purchasing with ClipShifter). The plugin is available in the following formats:
- Windows VST (32 and 64-bit).
- Windows VST3 (32 and 64-bit).
