The Drum Shaper

DS-10 Drum Shaper is not a generic transient shaper. XLN Audio built DS-10 Drum Shaper specifically for use with drums. By focusing just on drums, they were able to create a beast of a plug-in with an easy-to-use interface that uses three amazing algorithms to let you effortlessly control transients and quickly achieve punchy-sounding mixes. XLN Audio's powerful MOJO processor allows you to shape transients in specially selected frequency bands while leaving the other bands unaffected. XLN's unique technology employs tuned transient shaping to deliver excellent results in circumstances where traditional EQ and compression would be largely ineffective.

XLN Audio DS-10 Drum Shaper at a Glance:
  • Designed with three modes of operation for drums
  • Three algorithms have you covered
Designed with three modes of operation for drums

Because it's designed for drums, DS-10 Drum Shaper gives you three drum-specific modes of operation: Kick, Snare, and Bus. Under the bonnet, each mode is tuned to help you craft superb drum mixes with a minimum of fuss. Simply choose what kind of sounds to pass through DS-10, and use the Attack and Sustain knobs to dial in lustrous, ultra-punchy drum mixes. And while you're at it, say bye bye to coarse, artificial-sounding transients, because DS-10 Drum Shaper gives you three sophisticated algorithms to work with.

Three algorithms have you covered

Whatever drum sounds you have in mind for a particular project, DS-10 Drum Shaper's three algorithms have you covered. XLN Audio's proprietary Natural algorithm delivers transient shaping that's free of artifacts, even when you're pushing the envelope. For even more options, DS-10 Drum Shaper also includes a Smooth algorithm with a languorous release time that yields lovely, creamy results akin to what you might achieve with parallel compression. Lastly, the Classic algorithm features the cherished transient shaper from Addictive Drums 2, for a more raw sound with that sought-after pump factor.
