Sonnox Oxford Transient Modulator - Native - Electronic Delivery

Dynamic level modification of transients
MFR# Trans Mod Native

Product Description

The Sonnox Transient Modulator is an application that allows dynamic level of signals to be modified by the transients in the programme material over time. The effect is to bring transient events in the programme forwards, or push them into to the background, such that the attacks of instruments can be accentuated or softened depending on settings.

The application was developed to address the common situation where there is a need to selectively tighten up percussive instruments or soften the unwanted percussive effects of acoustic musical instruments. Such effects are easily achieved with the Transient Modulator because its purpose-designed adaptive processing acts on differential information in the programme so that the overall long-term programme level is minimally affected and sensitivity to control parameters is drastically reduced.

Features
  • Radically changes the dynamics of instruments.
  • Accentuates or flattens attacks and transients.
  • Brings sounds forward or push them back.
  • Increases or reduces the effects of ambience.
  • Produces rounded and dynamic percussive effects.
  • Hardens up and give life to dull or flat-sounding recordings and mixes, without the unwanted changes in overall timbre associated with multi-band compression techniques.
  • Variable harmonic enhancement for extra loudness, presence and 'punch'.
  • Increases overall modulation potential by the reduction of very short peaks.
The functions of the Transient Modulator are adaptive and totally dependent upon dynamic level changes within the signal. In other words, it will have no effect on a steady state signal, such as a continuous tone which does not change in level. Any control signals it develops are purely dependent upon the extent and rate of change of signal levels.

Gain,Threshold & Deadband
When the Ratio fader is set positively, significantly larger peak levels can be produced, with potential to increase them up to 24dB greater than the original signal. Conversely, negative ratio values can reduce the overall levels significantly, therefore the Gain fader has been designed to operate over a considerable range.

Unlike the rest of the processing in the Transient Modulator, the Threshold knob sets an absolute value. Other processing is tracking changes in the waveform and is not related to any absolute setting. In this case, only signals above the Threshold knob setting will be processed. The greater the signal level above the threshold, the greater the effect, the Transient Modulator will have.

The Deadband knob sets a window below which transient changes will remain unaffected, preventing unwanted modification to lower level signals.

Ratio & Overshoot
The Ratio fader sets the amount of instantaneous change, positive or negative, to the signal. As an example, if the Ratio fader is set to +1.00, and a signal peak 10dB above the average occurs, the Transient Modulator could increase that to a 20dB peak.

The Overshoot fader sets the period over which dynamics changes occur. The lower values will cause just the initial transients and leading edges of signal changes to be affected. Whereas longer values will increasingly have more affect on the later portions of signal changes.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
