FAC TRANSIENT Shaper by Fred Anton Corvest - NOW Available To Buy

So here is a demo of the "soon to be released" Transient Shaper from Fred Anton Corvest called FAC TRANSIENT.

So many people have wanted a Transient Shaper app for so long now and Fred has delivered one in his usual professional manner.

I'm sure this is going to become one of those essential apps

You can Pre-Order FAC TRANSIENT Here at the App Store

    Instant Purchase (i never say that) but this has been needed so much !!!!

    EDIT*
    Maybe its just me, and i only have FAC Chorus which has a no nonsense (Perfect) UI, those 6 silly lines (Vent ?) aren't going to be on the final release are they ?

    And just out of interest, what does it sound like on a snare, any chance of a before and after waveform view (Audio nice but not needed)

    All of the above, probably best ask Fred for all that, I didn’t test it on individual drums yet

    OK, no worries, I can't contact him, I don't use Facebook or Twitter, no email on his website.

  • I’m getting some peaks while using certain fx on Jubal Flute at high pitches. I wonder if this would help?

    Yes, this would fix all that kind of stuff

  • Looks really good. The only other transient designer I know of on iOS is the FXPansion DCam IAP in Auria, but the FAC one seems much more powerful and effective judging by this demo.

  • Looks nice :) Yeah I hope the grill is eventually replaced by a live display of the transients being shaped, that would be great.

  • As I had no idea what Transient Shaping may be, I found this to be helpful:

    +1 for this always nice to have more visuals to aid the controlling

    Transient design by itself wont have anything at all to deal with peaking.

    Hello :-) I’ve tested the transient in various setups, it’s truly amazing. For instance, I’ve triggered the classic machine “Eight” (808) just shaping a kick with it, which I then sampled in BM3, it works absolutely nice on snares (always critical to get what you want, normally), but really any percussion, but it doesn’t stop there. Point about the classic machines test was, that there is no adsr on them (lol) so it was the perfect test subject.
    You can tune the shape of single instruments or whole drumsets, basslines, samples or connected apps, very precisely!

    I’m also using it in chains, like FAC Transient>FAC Chorus>FAC Maxima>Dischord 4 and I can’t tell how great such a chain boosts the result. Without Dischord (using it for delay shifts, mass etc. >Drones) the sound is crystal clear, accurate and you can steer it’s direction, to wherever you want it, gives you what you looking for, so to speak. Just change value on a synth (for instance) and the sound changes dramatically or you can just touch areas you want to isolate/strengthened.

    Feels like giving the sound an identity, character or soul!

  • Awesome! Yes.. yes... essential!

    No you are better lowering your volume so that it doesnt peak, once its peaking its distorting, lower your volume so that you are not peaking no matter what you play, then if it is too low in volume vs the rest of your mix, lower everything else in volume to compensate, that is the best way to do it, obviously its 2018 and everybody wants to be an engineer and use this plugin and that plugin, so instead, lower you volume until it isn’t peaking, then add a compressor or limiter to raise its percieved volume back to where it was.

    Can’t the built in limiter in AUM take care of this?

    Taken some of the fx off now as it was only happening at a certain pitch and seemingly to do with this particular fx. With the fx on the volume of the lower notes was too different to the peaks of the highs. Lowering everything just didn’t work. In reality I’m just trying to push the particular sound where it doesn’t want to go lol

    Ha ha ha ha my point was to put those fan to avoid empty space... yes a bit vintage but I like it :) But yeahhhhhh all of you have already noticed that this free space is for something coming in a next update. For this release you should live with it I guess :) Then on second update after release I ,if everything is going well, I will put ... guys you should know me already :)

    For more info about the app please also ask to some of my Testflight team members who have made an amazing testing job (Thx to them!) @Jay Zen @david_2017 @jwmmakerofmusic etc...

    By the way website updated !! Very important to have a look to !

    Not sure if you have moved on from this, but you could try EQ as a simple fix, or multi band compressor if you want to get all complicated. :)

    Yeah it’s all so complicated. I’m so terrible at all this stuff. If I was doing this professionally, I’d hire someone :p

  • Great vid Doug! I see your dsp at around 40 with just 2 plugs. Is it pretty processor hungry? I may have to bus everything into just 1 instance I guess. Most of my AUM sessions use 10-20 plugins and I cap at around 35 dsp. iPad Pro 10.5.

  • Being part of the beta team I can say to you, you won't be disappointed ;) I remember the day when @jakoB_haQ posted the request for a transient designer on his youtube channel and I imagined him smiling firing it up this one on his iPad.

    @FredAntonCorvest did an fantastic job! The sound quality is absolutely brilliant and I didnt find it hungry for resources. I hooked it up with some midi to map and play around with. Worked without any problems. Automation on BM3? No Problem. Being universal, I can tell you its working without any issues so far on my iPhone 8.
    For a beta it is already super stable and it cannot take too long to have this released :)

    (except it could, if you think at @brambos story/odysee to release the Kosmonaut. Lets cross fingers that apple will be capable to finally review AUv3 Plugins quicker).

  • Nice! @FredAntonCorvest's plugins are some of the very finest out there. Looking forward to the release!:-)

  • @ion677 Yes, it’s Zeeon that makes the push, plus this is an iPad Air 2

  • Super. Major addition to iOS.

    It's probably just me, but those vents are cool. Simple yet elegant. :)

  • Here is a pretty good video tutorial on what a transient shaper does. (BTW, I pre-ordered.)

  • edited March 5

    hm basically it kind of creates an artificial envelope for audio
    it makes sounds shorter or longer and bang more or less
    not to be be confused with compression ...
    works wonders on drums, haven't tried with much else

    Multiband compressor ? If the peaks are at a particular frequency then this is what Multi-band compressors are for ! The idea being you set the compressor to only be active on the problem frequency and everything else is left alone.
    Very (excuse the pun) limited options for an AUv3 Multiband compressor though.
    Check this video...great explanation of how to use a Multiband compressor to eliminate exactly this sort of problem.

    im not sure how much sense the dry/wet knob makes when you mess with the sustain?
    I get the attack part and the ny compression thing ...
    I wonder if ppl actually do this with transient shapers?
