Auburn Sounds has released Couture Free Edition, a free transient shaper plugin for Windows and MacOS (AAX, Audio Unit and VST2).
Couture is a great tool that lets you control over your dynamics – particularly attacks. It lets you increase/decrease dynamics and make individual drum tracks a lot more dynamic and punchy.
With it, you can also remove the “click” out of a kick drum sample, or “deess” the very start of notes for vocals.
Couture can be used to give glue to a mix with light compression and saturation, and even to give life to inane lead synths.
The only difference between Couture full and free edition is the latter has the saturation part disabled.
You can download Couture free transient shaper plugin at Auburn Sounds.
