The TransientMangler plugin lowers the pitch of the incoming signal, without losing its rhythmic properties.

This plugin combines an onsetdetction algorithm with an interpolating buffer to achieve this. It’s designed mostly for manipulating percussive sounds, like drums.

Another feature is the ADSR. This envelope is triggered on each transient. By adjusting the settings, it’s possible to create very snappy and short percussive sounds.

This plugin is created together with Geert Roks, Haider Raja & Ward Slager
