Shapes Transients Without Affecting Loudness

Use the SPL Transient Designer 4 to make any element sit just right in your mix. Considering how simple the controls are, the results are remarkable. Use it to add punch to a kick drum or soften the attack of a rhythm guitar to help it sit back in the mix. Increase the sustain to add thickness and weight to wimpy tracks, or decrease it to help additional elements cut through without clouding your mix. Many Sweetwater Sales Engineers will tell you that with the SPL Transient Designer 4, you have full control over the transients in ways you can't achieve with traditional dynamics processors.

SPL Transient Designer 4 Dynamics Processor at a Glance:
  • Precise transient control is a new way to approach your mix
  • Manage dynamics without affecting loudness
  • Use on individual tracks and full mixes
Precise transient control is a new way to approach your mix

Besides basic EQ and panning, you'd be surprised how close you can get your mix just using the SPL Transient Designer 4. It's simple to use - adjust the attack knob to either sharpen or soften transients, and use the sustain control to fine-tune how quickly sounds decay. Use sharper attacks with shorter sustain to place elements up front in the mix, and soften transients while enhancing sustain to place elements further back in a mix.

Manage dynamics without affecting loudness

The reason we like the Transient Designer 4 at Sweetwater is that it gives us control over the dynamics of our audio without resorting to compression. You may find you can use milder compression ratios and settings on tracks that have been treated with the Transient Designer, leading to more dynamic and natural-sounding mixes.

Use on individual tracks and full mixes

The SPL Transient Designer 4 has been many engineers' first choice for bringing out the full power of drums, adding weight to bass parts, and helping individual mix elements find their right spot in the soundstage. It's also sweet for adding an edge of excitement to stems and even full mixes. Used moderately, the SPL Transient Designer 4 could become your new secret weapon for creating next-level mixes.

SPL Transient Designer 4 Dynamics Processor Features:
  • 4-channel level-independent dynamics processor
  • Add punch or soften hard sounds with the Attack control
  • Add thickness or remove weight with the Sustain control
  • Allows you to make elements cut through or sit back in a mix, without altering loudness
  • Use in mono mode for individual mono tracks, or in linked stereo mode for stereo mixes
Mix with precision, with the SPL Transient Designer 4!
