SPL® Transient Designer
Effortlessly reshape the attack and
sustain of any source.
Revered as a “secret weapon” mix tool by some of the world’s finest engineers, the SPL Transient Designer plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces allows you to shape sustain and attack of your sources. This allows for total transparent control over important elements of your mix, such as snare drums, overhead and room mics, piano, and more.
Now You Can:
Soften or slam percussion for maximum dynamic impact
Transparently shorten or increase sustain on drum overheads
Reduce or increase room mic ambience
Easily minimize mic bleed on important sources
UA Artist Tips & Tricks
Featuring Dave Isaac
Simple Features — Huge Control
With just three simple controls, Sustain, Attack, and Output Level, the SPL Transient Designer plug-in gives you a powerful fixative tool, as well as a creative one. Shorten or lengthen the “thwack” and decay of percussive signals such as kick drum, snare, and toms. Or, you can easily remove unwanted mic bleed, or expand the room sound of overheads. The result? Total control of individual drums and the dynamic impact of your mix.
Useful on any Instrument
The SPL Transient Designer plug-in is indispensable for a variety of instruments. You can enhance a piano’s delicacy by reducing a noisy attack, or add length to ringing chords. On acoustic guitar, you can accentuate or reduce the picking sound, depending on the part. The SPL Transient Designer also gives you control over the environment of a source. For example, easily reduce the amount of reverb on a choir, or take unwanted ambience out of dialog.
“The UAD SPL Transient Designer adds an energy that will bring out the life in your audio every time!”
– David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Luther Vandross, Eric Clapton)
“I use the SPL Transient Designer on almost every one of my drums. You want your transients to shine through and ‘wow’ — this plug-in does it like no other.”
– Armin Van Buuren
“The SPL Transient Designer plug-in is the perfect tool for crafting snare samples that can really make or break a groove.”
– Just Blaze (Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West)

I demo'ed the SPL Transient Designer messed around with it for about 10 minutes and solved the problem. Bought it 2 minutes later.

A must have
When I bought my Twin Quad, I decided to go and get the 3 plugins bundle. Choice is tough, so many great plugins available. I read a lot of forum posts to get advices on what to choose. SPL Transient Designer was not part of this list: I guess it seems too basic for most. Yet I decided to run the demo before picking my 3 plugins: it was a no brainer, I instantly picked it.
I don't know "all" the transient designers out there, but this one is magical. It's a killer on drums: I mix hip-hop and I can bring back to life any shitty drum-kit trackouts artists send me. It also works beautifully on many instruments. I cannot ask for more from this plug.

The master of transients
Brings the transients alive.
Game Changer!! Most of the demos will show off the ability to tighten up a kick/snare (or exaggerate the tail, but consider the toms! This thing paid for itself
j'ai comparé le SPL avec le même outils de chez native instrument ( transitent master )
Le SPL marche bien mais le NI à une fonction smooth qui permet d'arrondir le signal d'une manière plus naturel . A mon sens meilleur sur les caisses claires par exemple et sur les basse /guitares...
love it. so much better than the native alternative
feels way more like the hardware than the other native versions out there.
Fast and Easy
When I need something to snap or to tame over-plucky acoustic guitars. So fast and easy! Why bother wasting time dinking around with more options.
Over the top!
This is one of the best plug-ins I’ve purchased in a while. It has just the right stuff to get your kick, snare, acoustic guitar etc... over the top of the mix without forcing its way in.

Lo mejor de lo mejor!!
Si buscas manipular un archivo de audio hasta su límite este es tu compra
Podrás dar el color y la solides que quieras en sonidos que apenas tenían presencia o atacar una parte en específico de un sonido
!!!!Es espectacular probarlo!!!!
I have been mixing a 'white whale' guitar track longer than I care to admit. It had nasty transients which caused me to stack three compressors to level out the attack which killed the image. If transients are PROBLEM CHILDREN, this is the PADDLE. This unit doesn't stop at the 'blue jeans', it goes all the way to the 'bone' bypassing the peaks. Now I only need one compressor. You could fade in every note manually, or get this...
The sound in the front?
You need this.
I used to see engineers pull this baby up and wondered what it was. And it does much more than you could imagine with two knobs! 10 stars
make perfect drum with this amazing plug in！
Nice and easy
Just love simple plugins that do the job
