Waves Audio Releases New “Smack Attack” Transient Shaper Plugin

Waves Smack Attack Plugin

Waves Audio – makers of some of the best pro audio plugins around – have just released a brand new transient shaper plugin for producers. Smack Attack is a plugin intended to add some additional character to drums, loops, synth hits and other percussive sounds. The plugin allows subtle tweaking to intense shaping of sounds.

Rekkerd reports:

Unlike traditional transient shapers, Smack Attack lets you control more than just attack and sustain levels; you also get pinpoint control over the transients’ shape and duration. You can make a kick tighter than you’d ever imagined – or give your snares that extra crack. You also have a Sensitivity control for selective transient shaping: you can process all your transients, only the loudest ones, or anything in between.
