Transient Shaping Reimagined

A transient can be defined as the start of a new sound and is usually less than 30ms in length.

TransD 2.0 allows you to control the mix between these short bursts of sound and the original signal, with negative values attenuating them. The Sensitivity control allows you to fine tune how many transients are ‘picked up’ by the algorithm and for each transient that is detected, a specialised envelope is generated to control the amplitude of the incoming signal. 

TransD 2.0 is further extended with a Sidechain Input, as well as MIDI and Envelope outputs, that can be used to trigger or control sounds based on the transients of another. It should be glaringly obvious at first use that this is a unique and useful tool that reaches beyond what is currently possible with Live or any other transient shaping plugin. 

With over 100 iterations being tested and all audio processing is taking place in gen~ via custom code, you can expect GMaudio quality. All controls are designed to be automated and are ‘Push Ready’, the only thing left is for you to make some music with it!

PLEASE NOTE: Ableton Live 11 is required for MIDI Note Output.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
