  • Transient Amount – Adjusting the Bitter/Sweet setting for decreasing or increasing the transients.
  • Transient Integration – Provides three different modes of transient processing; Fast, Medium and Slow

As simple as just turning a knob

Turning the knob to Sweet side reduces the transients which commonly decreases any transient-rich percussive sounds in the mix, and turning the knob to the Bitter side magnifies the transients which commonly increases any transient-rich percussive sounds in the mix.

Multiband Features

Using a built in M/S Encoder/Decoder the Mid (Center) or the Side (Stereo) parts of the sound can be processed independently.

  • Main – processes using regular stereo signal scheme and it’s the only available mode for multichannel operations
  • Center – engages the internal MS encoder and processes only the Mid channel. After processing, the sound is decoded back to stereo (useful for snare/kick drums)
  • Stereo – engages the internal MS encoder and processes only the Side channel. After processing the sound is decoded back to stereo. (Efficient for panned rhythmic instruments)
