Intense Power. Perfect Punch.
Puncher 2 is a Multi-FX plug-in that will add instant power and punch to your tracks.
In terms of compression, this is the all in one tool you’ve been dreaming of. Packed into its compact design you will find 3 different effects. A Transient Shaper, Multiband Compressor and Parallel Compressor. It allows you to combine the power of these 3 amazing tools to create a brand new, unique and powerful sound. Puncher 2 not only allows you to to control the amount of the applied effect, it also allows you to control the effect itself. Offering advanced options for each effect you can fine tune every aspect as much as you like. Inside Puncher 2 you will also find 48 configured presets made for various genres and instruments.
Puncher 2 is designed to give you absolute tonal control of transient energy so that you can customize and shape those sounds.
Rather than have 3 separate units, Puncher 2 has the 3 elements you need to give your mix that clear extra punch, all in one compact plugin.
The ‘Transients’ section lets you shape the transients and sustain of your tracks. The main mix control lets you set the intensity of the effect, while the advanced settings give you control over the stereo linking, bandwidth and envelope length of the detection signal, as well as the maximum boost overage or cut that you want to apply to your signal’s transients or sustain.
The ‘Multiband’ section divides your track into 4 bands with subtractive IIR filters, creating a real-time linear phase Multiband split. Every band has its own compressor that applies logarithmic attack and release directly to the required gain reduction value, instead of to the detection signal, smoothing out the compression effect in an analog fashion.
The Parallel section lets you apply smooth parallel compression to even out the dynamics in your track in a very natural way, or create a powerful compression effect. You can also reduce the dynamic range without reduction to the peak level. The compressor has a continuous RMS time control and a knee width control that will let you fine tune the compressor’s sensitivity to react aggressive and digital, or silky and analog. By adding a parallel compressor to work with the Multiband band compressor this increases the effective compression ratio and makes the processing more obvious and effective.
In addition to expanding transient peaks, Puncher 2 allows you to shape the frequency response of the transient as well as the sustain signal. Innovations in technology bring new possibilities to customize the sound, plus a new ease of use to achieve the same sought-after results once only achieved by bulky, expensive and complex hardware. Designed with an easily understood and operational interface, Puncher 2 is a compact Multi FX plugin capable of delivering pin drop clarity as well as the hardest most intense punch to your mix.
