Audiority TS-1 Transient Shaper review at MusicRadar

A product from

Can this budget plugin change the game?

In 1998, German manufacturer SPL wowed the music production industry with its Transient Designer.

Using just two knobs, it could transform flabby, punchless percussion into sharp, focused drum tracks, and badly recorded bass into smooth, usable low end. But it was expensive... and hardware.

In the intervening years, though, the meteoric rise in computer-based music-making has brought not just two software versions of Transient Designer itself, but a large number of plugin clones and many inspired evolutions of the concept, so Audiority's take on the idea has plenty of competition.


  • Simple interface
  • Sidechain filters
  • Dry/wet mix control
  • Nice soft clipping
  • Good sound


  • No input/output metering
  • No on/off indicators for switches

Our Verdict
A versatile and creative transient-shaping tool, TS-1's two modes and soft clipping algorithm help it find its own niche.
