Couture is a great shaper for drums and especially percussions. I use it most of the time to add punch or snappiness to the tracks.

I have seen videos of people using it on a master bus, but I'm not sure that is the correct use of this plugin.

Response from Guillaume Piolat from Auburn Sounds on January 31st, 2023

We put that in an example on the website, but I agree it can be a bit much on the master bus especially with comple dynamics Couture will struggle. This can be appropriate on the master bus for a dance mix before a limiter or clipper, to smash it more.

Good plugin. I run Reaper 6.03 native Linux, and I have Couture embedded in a couple of drumset track templates. I've been exploring compression and saturation on drum tracks recently, and the ability to add saturation and shape transients in a single plugin is great, especially on cymbals.

I have a couple of drumset templates where I send the cymbals to a separate submix, and send that submix through Couture. The transient and saturation controls give me lots of flexibility while mixing.

I started with the free version, but wanted the saturation, so I bought it. I'm glad I did. I only use the Sin, Bass and Tube saturation settings, (the others are a bit too intense for me) but as I said, they work great on cymbals.

I specifically got it for drum tracks, and it does the job well...

Good stuff.
