*Disclaimer: I'm a songwriter, producer, and educator. My writing style may read like a billboard ad, but my user review is sincere and authentic. I only appraise a product I consider extraordinary, hence the high rating. I don't work for the developer. In fact, I rarely work at all. :-) I hope you find my review useful. — Tommy Zai

MMultiBandTransient by MeldaProduction superbly manipulates the attack and sustain section of sounds with minimal effort and maximum results. It allows you to target frequencies and reshape them. Upon launch, you will notice four big knobs, a row of parameters, preset management arrows, and buttons (oversampling, limiter, an easy to read meter, etc.). It’s all nicely displayed within a simple, but attractive interface. I had no difficulty loading a preset and adjusting from there. Bands are easily handled with skill and ease. I couldn’t resist cranking knobs all over the place, and changing the oversampling. In doing so, I discovered nuances that ranged from slight to insane. What I did to an 808 snare is criminal! I spent most of my time in the default basic mode and was thrilled with the results. I would need more time to explore the advanced parameters found on the edit page, but looking at the menu options I’m sure I will not be disappointed — and neither would any user.

PROS
• User-friendly interface
• Simple controls
• Powerful features
• Randomization (Melda is famous for this kind of feature)
• Comprehensive modulation section
• Limiter to prevent clipping/overload
• Excellent sound quality
• MIDI learn
• Oscillators/modulators can be sync’d to host
• Usable presets and good preset management
• Responsive and productive developer
• Lifetime updates

CONS
• Some aspects tax CPU

CONCLUSION
MMultiBandTransient is an excellent way to excite specific elements of an audio — or calm them down. During my demo-ing, I brought a nearly dead drum loop back to life. This plugin is a great way to re-animate attacks and sustains of percussive sounds, i.e., drums, bass, guitar, etc. As with most Melda plugins, you can go as deep as you like — or keep it simple. I kept it simple and discovered I simply love what this MMBT does to my tracks. It’s difficult to put the sonic changes into words. I keep thinking about those old Batman comic book action words, BAP, ZING, BAM, ZAMM, KaPOW, etc. Thank you MeldaProduction for creating such an electrifying plugin. Now that I’ve affected my tracks with it, I cannot imagine hitting bypass! Best of all is the price. Tommy Zai gives MMultiBandTransient two drumsticks up.
