Surreal Machines Impact Transient Shaper and Free Plugin Crack!

I picked up a few of the plugins before the sale ended and I just opened them in Logic.

Unless I was missing something, I didn't see any preferences or any way to make the plugins larger. They're currently a bit on the tiny side. I'm on a 4K monitor, but who isn't these days?

Are there any future plans to make them resizable or larger?

After watching this thread for a few days I decided to try the demo, with the idea of proving to myself I didn't really need this. Boy was I wrong. Just purchased.

This is so easy to understand and use, and the results are so fine.

What a handy and easy to use tool.

Click the Impact Preset menu, not the host menu. In the drop-down you'll see the resize option.

Oh, I see. Thanks.

I guess it's not on the two plugins I bought, the dubstation bundle.

Unfortunately resize is only available for the new plugins currently but they said it's coming for Diffuse and Modnetic as well in 2021...

Thumbs up

This plugin has now become my, "How did I managed to tweak drums before?" goto plugin.

As a sound shaping tool it is so great with drums in the 3 band mode.

Really nice workflow and sound. Just one thing which i feel might make it better for me. The readouts when tweaking the EQ are tiny and a distance from where you are tweaking. Just wondering if the readout became yellow or bold (or both) for the parameters you are changing which would be easier to follow.

Thanks Rick.

Is it me or this doesn't lengthen or shorten the sustain so much as increase or decrease the volume.

My thought as well.

Wow! The free Crack is far the best simple transient shaper i've heard, and i've tried almost all of them.
Need to try the Impact!

Hehehehe same here.

Try Impact and then you'll buy it. It's like UAD plugins. You try them and then you're hooked.

I’ve never actually dive in to the idea of freq-dependent transient control, so i never touched any multiband transient tools...YET. )

That’s why i was talkin about Crack. So far this one is the most organic of everything one-band i’ve tried, including SPL and Elysia.

Curious on how this stacks up to Envolution. For me that plugin is so ahead of the competition, it would be amazing to see something in the same league but with a different sound.

Will test and report back

No it isn't. They address it in their FAQ on the website. Honestly, as someone who bought the M4L pack it kinda grinds my gears, which is why I can't bring myself to buy it because it feels like I'd be buying the same thing twice.

Indeed, the Attack on Crack might be a little less digitally clicky.. so a bit more analog sounding..

Though, when properly gain matched there is very little difference from e.g. Kiloheartz's one.

Thanks for this cracking Xmas Gift Surreal Machines!
