Musical Transient Enhancer Plug-In

US Techivation's T-Puncher is designed to add punch and power to drums      27/09/22

Techivation tells us that their T-Puncher is designed to provide a musical punch and power to your drums while remaining natural. A spokesperson told us, "Forget about dialing too many knobs and getting lost with an artifactual sound. You'll feel the punch, power and musicality once the T-Puncher is on your tracks."

Here's the company's description of some key features...

Major Punchiness Control
The Punchiness knob in T-Puncher lets you reduce or increase the amount of punchiness in sounds. By default it is set at 0%, which means the plug-in doesn't affect the punchiness amount. It can go from 0 to -100% for less punchiness or 0 to 100% for adding extra punchiness.

Smoother (Saturation)
T-Puncher "Smoother" feature allows you to add a unique saturation to the selected frequency range that you're adding or reducing the punchiness from. It is a great option for rounding off aggressive transients. You can choose to go subtle or more aggressive with this feature, and set it from 0 to 100%.

Attack Control
The Attack knob in T-Puncher lets you bring the transients and peaks of the sounds to the front of the mix or push them deeper into the mix. It's a very powerful feature for achieving various artistic and unique sounds and overall mix.

Effect Modes
You can choose to have "Soft" or "Hard" modes selected in T-Puncher. "Soft" mode gives you a more subtle result while changing the Punchiness amount, while "Hard" mode is designed to give you a more aggressive sound.

Frequency Range Control
The frequency range control allows you to choose a range of frequencies from 20Hz to 20kHz for controlling the punchiness and shaping the transients. For example, if 40Hz to 300Hz is selected, the changes in the plug-in apply to that frequency range only. So if you just want to enhance the kick drum hits in a mix, you can find the frequency range of that kick drum and apply the effect to the kick drum only.

Mid-Side Processing
Mid-Side Processing This section of the T-Puncher plug-in lets you choose between stereo/mid/side.

    Stereo: When selected the plug-in affects the both mid and side signals on stereo tracks.

    Mid: When selected the plug-in only affects the sounds in the center (or mid).

    Side: When selected, the plug-in only affects the sounds on the side of a stereo track.

Solo Button (delta-listening)
When this button is selected you will only hear the processed audio signal path post frequency range filter. This feature is essential for finding the right frequency range to set.

Soft Clip Option
The soft clip option prevents the sound from being distorted when choosing aggressive settings, gently and smoothly. This option can be on or off to your choice.

You can choose to have the Stereo Link option engaged or disengaged in T-Puncher. When engaged the overall punch effect is controlled by the loudest channel (left or right) and applied to both channels.

Oversampling set at 4X
Oversampling in T-Puncher helps you decrease aliasing by executing the internal process at a higher sample rate than the host at 4 times higher. (In other words, it will improve the quality of your audio.)
We use the latest oversampling processing technology to keep the plug-in very light on CPU, even though it's always set at 4X!

Scalable GUI (80% to 150%)
The GUI scale may range from 80% to 150%.
