    The Transient Designer provides a revolutionary concept for dynamic processing rendering controls such as Threshold, Ratio and Gain superfluous. The Transient Designer provides a very elaborated automation, so while the processing going on inside the box may be very complex, the user has to deal with just a pair of intuitive controls.

    SPL's Differential Envelope Technology is the first analogue solution for level-independent shaping of envelopes allowing transients to be accelerated or slowed down and sustain prolonged or shortened. The degree of dynamic processing required to do this couldn't be duplicated even using a chain of several conventional compressors, yet only two controls per channel are required to allow the user to completely reshape the attack and sustain characteristics of a sound. Attack can be amplified or attenuated by up to 15dB while Sustain can be amplified or attenuated by up to 24dB, enabling weak drum sounds to be made much more percussive and powerful, or for over-percussive transients to be softened. All necessary time constants (Attack, Decay and Release) are automated and optimised adaptively in a musical manner according to the characteristics of the input signal. This results in natural sounding signal processing and fast operation.

    The Transient Designer uses envelope followers to track the curve of the natural signal so that optimum results are guaranteed regardless of the input signal's dynamics. Because of the level-independent processing inherent in Differential Envelope Technology (DET), manual threshold adjustments are not required.

    Applications

    • The attack of a bass drum or a loop can be emphasised with a single control to increase the punch and the penetration in the mix.
    • Sustain of a snare or room-sound can be shortened very musically to clean up the mix for more transparency.
    • Acoustic or electronic instruments can be made to sound more aggressive or can be smoothed with longer attack times.
    • De-verb capability! Less Sustain shortens reverb tails of any sound.
    • New panorama effects based on different dynamic effects per channel – try this with loops for example.
