New residue monitor update is tremendously helpful.
I have many FFT and spectrum display programs (at least 12 on this machine).
I was, once again, looking to generate some noise profile images for a report and in frustration, went back to the web looking for alternatives - I found Span Plus.
Several of the features make generating the presentation materials I need super easy and effective - taking the files into an editor/mixer so that I can use the plugin is completely offset be the ease of seeing what I need and capturing PNG files all within the software - I know it probably wasn't your intent to support the test and measurement industry, but it does!
Impressed enough that I just bought the Premium Membership and am looking forward to using the tools for their real intent - Music
"GET UN EFFECT LIKE BRINGING THE MICROPHONE CLOSER TO THE SOURCE"
I have really tried many transient shaper plugins to bring forward a closely recorded sound more transparently than an eq or compressor and to keep the background noise under control which means improving the Signal/Noise ratio.
Apart from Eventide Physion which has a separate place (and requires high latency) I must admit that TransGainer is truly exceptional once you understand how to adapt the detector to your purpose, "Transient detector threshold" and PRECISE_B algorithm in particular.
With a reference converter RME ADI-2 PRO FS it is interesting to note that as the resolution increases, artifacts decrease, especially if you want to use low Detector Threshold. Oversampling is not as useful as a real higher resolution especially from 384kHz and you can also use 768kHz for an almost analog experience.
More than that I think that you have to switch to Elysia Nvelope hardware that has some interesting features that I would like to be inherited by TransGainer in future editions!
As a reference of my tests:
Alg = PRECISE B
Det Delay = 10.0 (min)
Det Thresh = 12.0 (high sample rate resolutions) / 18.0 (low sample rate resolutions)
X.Attack = 200 (max)
X.Decay = 40.0 (min)
X.Gain = 4.0
Out Gain = 0.0
Congratulations indeed for a plugin very underestimated by reviewers and forums.
I just wanted to say thank you for your great products! They are among the very best plug-ins I have tried and used. In particular, I would like to tell you that the Warmifier is absolutely brilliant. I applied it to several tracks on a classical violin solo CD which I recorded with one of Canada's leading violinists. Due to the nature of the violin sound on those tracks, a bit thin and cold to my liking (it so happened that the recording space the violinist provided was far from ideal), I decided to apply the Warmifier - and was stunned! The changes I made were subtle but quite significant. And now we have a beautifully sounding instrument throughout. Thank you again.
