    Key Features

    • Punchiness

      “Punchiness” is the main control of the plug-in. It allows to boost or cut the level of attacks (transients) in your track. Increase “Punchiness” to add more punch to the percussive elements of your audio, or decrease it to soften them instead.

    • Limiting

      “Limiting” parameter controls M-Puncher’s dynamic soft clipper. It gives you control over how much the level of attacks is increased when boosting “Punchiness”. Raising “Limiting” constraints the attack levels, while increasing their harmonic richness. This lets you find the exact character of punch that your track needs.

    • Thump Control

      “Thump” control applies a bass boost to the attack portions of your audio. It allows you to accentuate the low-end impact of the track while preserving the original tonal balance.

    • Sustain Control

      “Sustain” control allows you to boost or cut the level of the sustained parts of your audio.

    • Detection Range

      “Detection range” control allows you to limit the frequency range that M-Puncher analyses to identify attack and sustain portions of the audio.

    • Three Envelope Styles

      M-Puncher’s “Punchiness” control shapes the attack portions of your track by applying a volume envelope to them. You can choose between three envelope styles: “Tight”, “Normal”, and “Loose”.

    • Dry/wet Mix

      This parameter sets the amount of gain for the processed signal. It is applied before the Dry/Wet mixing takes place.

    • Diff & Sidechain

      'Diff’ lets you listen to the difference between processed and original signals, and ‘Sidechain’ lets you listen to the sidechain input.

    • Make Up Gain

      The Make Up Gain in M-Puncher allows you to precisely control the amount of gain applied to the processed signal.

    • Auto Gain

      ‘Auto Gain’ enables automatic control of "Make Up Gain". When "Auto Gain" is disabled, the "Make Up" parameter is set to the latest measured auto gain value.

    • Left-Right/Mid-Side balance

      This feature allows you to switch processing between LR (Left & right) or MS (mid-side) modes, and control the amount of the plug-in's effect on the LR or MS channels of your stereo tracks.

    • Input-output level meters

      Input-Output Level Meters are visual displays that show the audio levels of the input and output signals before and after processing.

    • Scaleable user interface

      The interface scaling feature in M-Puncher allows you to customize the size of the GUI to suit your preferences and optimize your workflow. With a range of scaling options available, from 50% to 150%, you can personalize the interface to match your visual and working style.

    • Internal On/Off Switch

      The plug-in features a dedicated bypass/on control, which allows for the swift enabling or bypassing of the effect. This user-friendly control is designed to help avoid potential clicks or audio artefacts that may occur when toggling the effect on or off directly within the DAW host.

    • A/B Switch

      The A/B buttons provide a convenient way to compare different options and find the optimal setting for your audio processing needs. With just a click, you can easily switch between two different versions of the same processing chain and compare the results.
