      Shape your drums in an innovative way

      Its not easy to get a wrong sound out of this plugin. The T-Puncher lets you be creative with your artistic vision without worrying too much about going technically wrong with transient shapping process.

      Its often tricky using transient shaper plug-ins, because they can go way too far easily, and you wouldnt tell whether they're helpful or not on a track. Thats why we designed T-Puncher in a way to make this process actually effective and useful for all kinds of musicians. Professionals, or beginners.

      It also lets you soften the hits, if you want it

      Dial the major knob from 0 to 100% to increase the punchiness, or go from 0 to -100% to soften your drum hits. Both ways are safe, meaing you wouldnt end up messing up the musicallity and original vibe of your drum hits.

      There are many kinds of drum hits, or bass lines that may need to be treated differently with transient shaping. although T-Puncher is mainly for enhancing the punchiness, but its also perfect when it comes to softening the transient hits when needed.

    Key Features

    • Major Punchiness Control

      The Punchiness knob in T-Puncher lets you reduce or increase the amount of punchiness in sounds. By default it is set at 0%, which means the plug-in doesnt affect the punchiness amount. It can go from 0 to -100% for less punchiness or 0 to 100% for adding extra punchiness.

    • Smoother (Saturation)

      T-Puncher Smoother feature allows you to add a unique saturation to the selected frequency range that youre adding or reducing the punchiness from. It is a great option for rounding off aggressive transients. You can choose to go subtle or more aggressive with this feature, and set it from 0 to 100%.

    • Attack Control

      The Attack knob in T-Puncher lets you bring the transients and peaks of the sounds to the front of the mix or push them deeper into the mix. Its a very powerful feature for achieving various artistic and unique sounds and overall mix.

    • Effect Modes

      You can choose to have Soft or Hard modes selected in T-Puncher. Soft mode gives you a more subtle result while changing the Punchiness amount, while Hard mode is designed to give you a more aggressive sound.

    • Frequency Range Control

      The frequency range control allows you to choose a range of frequencies from 20Hz to 20kHz for controlling the punchiness and shaping the transients. For example, if 40Hz to 300Hz is selected, the changes in the plug-in apply to that frequency range only. So if you just want to enhance the kick drum hits in a mix, you can find the frequency range of that kick drum and apply the effect to the kick drum only.

    • Mid-Side Processing

      Mid-Side Processing This section of the T-Puncher plug-in lets you choose between stereo/mid/side.

      Stereo: When selected the plug-in affects the both mid and side signals on stereo tracks.

      Mid: When selected the plug-in only affects the sounds in the center (or mid).

      Side: When selected, the plug-in only affects the sounds on the side of a stereo track.

    • Solo Button (delta-listening)

      When this button is selected you will only hear the processed audio signal path post frequency range filter. This feature is essential for finding the right frequency range to set.

    • Soft Clip Option

      The soft clip option prevents the sound from being distorted when choosing aggressive settings, gently and smoothly. This option can be on or off to your choice.

    • Stereo-Link

      You can choose to have the Stereo Link option engaged or disengaged in T-Puncher. When engaged the overall punch effect is controlled by the loudest channel (left or right) and applied to both channels.

    • Oversampling set at 4X

      Oversampling in T-Puncher helps you decrease aliasing by executing the internal process at a higher sample rate than the host at 4 times higher. (In other words, it will improve the quality of your audio.)
      We use the latest oversampling processing technology to keep the plug-in very light on CPU, even though its always set at 4X!

    • Scalable GUI (80% to 150%)

      The GUI scale may range from 80% to 150%.
