The Importance of Transients

The Importance of Transients

All music contains transients of some kind, whether it’s drums, percussion, guitars, or piano to name a few. Being able to boost or cut these transients gives you unprecedented control of an instrument’s presence and weight in a mix. With the Envolution plug-in, you can easily make a snare snap to the foreground, or add presence and/or distance to drums, piano, guitar, and more.

Two Sections — Total Control

Two Sections — Total Control

The Envolution plug-in offers Transient and Sustain sections, each with its own set of Attack, Hold, and Release controls. This amount of fine tuning gives you a wide variety of uses — from subtly cutting down room ambience on drums and guitar to completely re-imagining signals with extreme envelope shaping.

Frequency-Dependent Tweaking and More

Frequency-Dependent Tweaking and More

Both the Sustain and Transient sections feature a FREQ control that offers Tilt or Focus EQ modes. Tilt is perfect for more gentle envelope shaping whereas Focus mode provides a band-pass or notch response for more precise control. The Envolution also features a Warmth function that adds harmonic richness while also preventing output signal overload and a Mix control for added versatility.

There are tons of great transient shapers out there, but this is Sonnox/UAD baby.
Tired of using compression? Try this (especially kick drums)
Want your 808s to KO the living heck out of the listener? Bro use this
You killed your dynamics due to over processing? This thing works like an extra life
On a serious note, you get great flexibility, super sonic results, and a saturation module

Very helpful! - The "Sonnox Oxford Envolution" plugin …

I have become very valuable and indispensable.
The possibility with this tool a complete drum track
to give more expression through dynamics, contours and transparencies
is very impressive. The manipulation of the space via "sustain" is ingenious.
A very well working plugin with which I save a lot of work.
A "must have" not just for remastering. - Absolutely test!

Ik like the way this plug in deals with the transients. I get good results. Visual feedback is also great. Probably the best transient plug in available .

One of the best "transient designer" I've ever used

Great sound
Simple operation
Good visualization
Applicable not only for drums (also for drums subgroup) but also for bass, guitar and other instruments or effects
Nice job!

Attack is back

Stays on my drums to make them snap. Great for shaping tones on snare and bass. Love this plug and plan on experimenting more with it.

Pretty Un-Beatable

This plug seems to excel in a litany of situations and is super easy to use.
It is able to impart mojo vary transparently - somehow!

You’ve got to try this one!!!

So, I was thinking...’What’s all the fuss about’? Within seconds of putting this on my go to reference song, and adding a bit of sustain and and warmth, on God knows what frequencies...wow, how can you improve what I thought was a perfectly mastered hit record??? This has to be the simplist, most instantly effect plugin I’ve ever tried. A no brainier, just try it, and you will buy it. Stunning...thank you Guys.

Best transient shaper to date.

Used SPL shaper with decent results. Then I discovered this. Swiss army tool for transient shaping. Huge time saver. Useful on anything with percussive attributes. Magic.

Worth of trying - great tool!

It`s true - it`s an amazing tool for Drum Loops - it fades away unwanted sparkling reverb and gives solid platform for you to work with. If you want to give a punch to your drums - it`s easy. Also try it on different synth sequences - you may find it interesting as well!

Powerful Transient Shaping

Super powerful transient shaper. Not sure what else to say... takes the SPL Transient designer to the next level.

The best one for transient modulation

Perfect to achieve powerfull and precise transients, mostly on drum tracks. For me it is the evolution of the old Sonnox TransMod.

Not just for drums

Have to say, I'm loving this even more than I thought I would. Of course it's awesome on drums, but it is also killer on rhythm guitar and keyboards. You can really change the overall tone and feel of a track with this.

Master drum shaper & more

Dynamic shaping for punch, bite, tame or enhance attack/decay/sustain/release on synths, drums, guitars, etc. or just glitch out in loads of creative ways. (Try listening to “diff” for creative uses)

Extremely powerful tool. Wow.
