In The Mix - Transient Designers

In The Mix - Transient Designers

The transient is in its simplest explanation, the initial hit of the instrument. This is the pick hitting the string,or the stick hitting the snare drum, it’s the initial start of the sound and what we focus on without even realizing. Compression focuses heavily on how much of this we allow to pass through without being touched by the compressor (the attack) and the release is then the aftermath of the hit and when the compression ends. But using a Transient designer can help create the same effect, or in this case help you to shape your sound without having to color your sound with EQ or compressors but simply by shaping the wave form to better fit the mix.
