We are currently working on a plugin that has a transient designer meant to increase or decrease an 808’s attack. We have an implementation based on the SPL fast and slow envelope method. The problem we are facing is when 808s are close together the algorithms doesn’t trigger as strongly because the previous 808 hasn’t decayed enough. Have a listen to the attached file.
We are wondering if anyone has designed a successful transient shaper that effectively boosts or cuts the attack of an 808 without the problem stated above, potentially with a lookahead approach to accurately identify the peaks and apply gain to them.
