Using Sonnox Transient Modulator to Bring Drums Forward

In the previous tip we discussed the Recovery control. Now we’ll rise to the occasion and talk about the Rise Time control. The rise time value modifies the response of the Transient Modulator’s envelope detector to fast transients and provides a method to decrease the sensitivity of the process for short-term events. With the control set at minimum all transients, however short, will be processed. Increasing the rise time control reduces the overall speed of the envelope detector. At higher settings, fast transients will be progressively ignored as they fall beneath the value of the rise time setting. This control is useful in the case of fast transients that you do not wish to enhance. It can also be used as an effect. For example, a rise time value can set to eliminate the initial attack of an instrument during an overall transient reduction or increase. This allows you to model the sound of the overshoot (see tech tip 4-6-06) to soften or harden the effect. In the next tip, we’ll explain the Deadband control. At this point, it’s a good idea to go back to the beginning of the series and read through the controls again (see TTOTD 4-4-06).
