Description

Not Just Another Transient Designer

Transgressor is the new standard of transient design. While transient designers let you control the level of your transients, we found thatĀ approach just never gave us the results we were looking for. While adjusting the level of transients can certainly impact your sound, the real power comes from being able to EQ your transients and sustains separately.

EQ Your Transients and Sustains

Transgressor gives you 2 EQs. One for your attack and one for your sustain, letting you shape exactly the way you want your attack to sound. Whether it’s hard hitting, tight drums, or big sustained drums, Transgressor lets you dial it in exactly the way you want it.

Do you want to add bite to your snare without increasing the snare buzz? Transgressor is your go-to plugin for this. Do you need to reduce the ringing in your snare without changing the tone? Surprise! Transgressor does this easily.

Sidechain Magic

In addition to giving you full control over the sound of your transients, Transgressor adds another layer of creativity by letting you use the detector with an external sidechain. This lets you adjust the EQ and sustain of any instrument being triggered by another.

    This plugin will provide you with unprecedented drum sound manipulation. It is really like no other tool but incorporates many, making use of an intuitive and fairly simple control center. With that said, the price is of fenomenal value, especially with the 50% off release price. As a consumer I make sure I buy all products that I like from Boz Digital because I believe they offer great quality/cost ratio. It is like fomenting a high value future for the consumers of this industry. Keep them coming

    Very unique, and very useful. Being able to EQ and control the level of transients and sustain separately is much more powerful than it may seem. Some of the drum tracks that I have used it on sound like I did a drum replacement AND parallel compression — night and day difference. I’m still exploring some of the non-drum applications, and also using just the transient or just the sustain for special effects. The possibilities seem endless….great work!

    Just wanted to tell you how
    overwhelmed I am by the Transgressor plugin. I’m right now mixing a
    live recording of a mini festival show (where I just didn’t have the
    time to super precisely tune the drums, find the best microphone
    positions and so on) for a band and Transgressor helped on ALL drum
    channels.

    It helped me shape the kick like I couldn’t seem to be able to
    before, it cleaned up my snare track (which had excessive hihat
    bleed). It cleaned up the tom channels and made them even punchier. I
    haven’t even tried it on the overheads, but I think I’m gonna. I’m
    super happy as is!!
    I have tried other seemingly similar plugins, but for me Transgressor blows them out of the water.

    Thank you!

    PS I haven’t even had a chance to try out the update, which will probably make this plugin even more useful.

    This plugin is very simple and intuitive with a new spin on transient processing that many will favor for drums. Processing the transients EQ and sustain separately is extremely powerful, allowing the removal of resonances without losing attack and cleaning up the signal on the sustain. Large UI. Excellent sidechain possibilities. The lookahead gives it a smoother sound when shaping at more extreme quantities. Overall, the amount of shaping this can do on drums is nothing short of amazing. I have not had the chance to try this on other instruments as of yet, but so far results have been quick and extremely rewarding on drums.

    Great plugin! A very good alternative to the usual suspects when it comes to transient processing. The design is perfect and I think it’s one of the very few plugins that just make sense, no useless knobs or anything too fancy – just what’s needed to shape sounds in the most efficient way possible. I had great results on drums so far with this, but it’s also fine for making melody lines sit better in a mix. Especially for synthesizers with a bold sound it’s very useful, I used it on a Moog Voyager bassline a few times to tighten it up and it didn’t even need any further processing.
    This is definitely my go-to tool to shape sounds now.
    Plus, in comparison to other transient designers the price is pretty nice, I would even pay more for this one.

    5 Golden stars to this one. It makes my life so much easier. I don’t have to go through hundreds of drum samples to make a poorly recorded drumkit sound decent anymore. Just by extending the attack’s release time I get a great sound. JJP just mentioned on NAMM that he has his assitants cut the attack of every track so that he can eq and comprees the attack separately from the release. Well, if his assistants get this plug in, their job will be much easier! A must have!

    This the plugin I didn’t know I needed until I tried it and realised its what I’ve been wanting for years.
    Being able to manipulate the transient separately from everything else, but also being able to shape everything else is such an advantage for badly recorded or compressed drums.
    In the short time I’ve been using Transgressor I have been able to rescue several Kicks and Snares that in the past I would have replaced or augmented with samples.
    Thanks BDL!

    I just thought I’d take a few minutes to drop you a line to express
    my entire satisfaction with Transgressor. Very cool plugin. It has
    permitted me to remove a number of effects from my drum processing
    chain, i.e., EQ, multiple instances of compression, noise gates,
    enhancers, etc. I can slightly modify or radically change the sound
    of my drum tracks without them sounding “tweaked”. It takes a
    few minutes to get the hang of it but, that accomplished, I find it to
    be a breeze to use. The layout is logical and user-friendly. I
    especially like the “ears-based” EQ section. No distracting
    frequency Hz numbers to worry about. Nice job, folks.

    One little thing that might be a cool addition for a future version
    would be a Mongoose-style frequency-based width control on both the
    transient and sustain sections. That would be total control and fun
    to experiment with.

    You don’t have this in your toolbox! I have some of the other transient designers, and pretty much they control sustain and transients on the the entire signal. Sorry Boz – not saying this is a transient designer though!

    I used Transgressor to fix the following issues quickly: toms were too tubby, straight EQ’ing the kick wasn’t giving me the click I needed, and the room mics weren’t giving my snare enough air with too much boomy-ness in the 120hz area.

    Transgressor is now my main stay for drum mixing. I have yet to use it on other material, but I imagine drums is where I would use it the most. What you want in your head with your drum tracks is now tons easier with Transgressor. Although there is only 3 filter types per section – the Q section allows some pretty radical notching curves. I am still trying to wrap my head around getting the transient and sustain sections separated more accurately.

    A little goes a long way. Trust me, you need this if you mix drums.

    Amazing plugin! I mean, I’ve been processing drums this way since long ago with transient controller tool, add some attack, lessen sustain, but no tool was so comprehensive yet easy to use as Transgressor. Where you can actually control the attack and sustain behavior.

    This plugin streamlined my drum processing even more now, much more efficient and effective result. You can make it natural as it was a nicely recorded drum set or make it really aggressive easily.

    And try it on bass or vocals sometime, great result! Awesome plugin!

    This plugin allowed me to use only the recorded drums for the first time. I didn’t have to augment with any triggered drums. I love what it did to the toms. I was able to keep the tom tracks open and still get a nice crisp attack without having it affect the cymbals and other bleed. I hope the next update has a pitch function on the non transient side like the eventide fission.
