Customize attack character with Transient Shaper

When you want to carefully tweak the punch of your snare, the ricki-ticki-ticking of your hi-hats or the snappiness of a synth line, Transient Shaper is the right tool for the job.

Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but sometimes this can be a bit cumbersome. This is where Transient Shaper shines, giving you very direct control over the character of both the attack and sustaining sections of the sound in a way that's simple to understand and tweak.


  • The amount of amplification or attenuation of the transient.


  • The amount of attenuation directly after the transient, emphasizing the transient without increasing the level.


  • The amount of amplification or attenuation of the sustained sound.


  • When enabled, the output signal is clipped to 0dB.


  • When enabled transients are detected based on a secondary input, but the effect is applied to the main input.


  • Higher values results in snappier transient modification, and lower values result in smoother curves.

Plugin Requirements 

  • An X86 64-bit processor with SSE3 support. This is available in almost all computers from the last few decades.
    On macOS we also support the Apple "M" processor arhitecture.

    If you have many instances of our plugins running, or use a lot of Snapins at the same time in your patch, CPU usage will increase accordingly. Thus, we cannot guarantee that our plugins will work flawlessly in all use cases, even if your system does meet the minimum recommended system requirements.Operating SystemNo matter if you are a Windows or macOS user, Kilohearts recommend keeping up to date with newer OS versions as they become available. We are not able to support OS versions that are no longer supported by their respective manufacturers. If you are using an outdated OS, please try our free trials to ensure compatibility before making any purchases.Software

  • A DAW supporting the VST2, VST3, AAX, or Audio Unit plugin standards.
