Cymatics has announced the release of Diablo Lite Drum Enhancer, a free transient shaper plugin for Windows and macOS.
According to its developers, Diablo Lite is aimed at enhancing your drums and 808’s so they hit harder and cut through your mix. This plugin adds saturation and compression to the sound, being primarily tuned for drums and percussion.
Diablo Lite comes with an easy to use user interface, pleasing to the eye and quite modern.
You will notice two main controls: Punch and Clip. Punch feature is a transient shaper designed to help your drums cut through any mix. Clip is a clipper with hard and soft options.
Moving on to the bottom, there’s a row with three knobs. From left to right, “Input” and “Output” set the incoming and outgoing signal, following by “Mix”, a standard feature that lets you mix between the processed and original signal.
Cymatics says the Lite version has about 10% of the features of the full version of Diablo, which comes out on January 22, 2021. The full version will have additional controls such as “Boost”, filter, “Body”, stereo widener, equalizer, saturation, etc.
Even so, Diablo Lite remains a fully usable plugin, perfect for those in search of a free transient shaper to use on their drum sounds. It is available in VST & AU plugin versions for Windows and macOS.
In order to download Diablo Lite, a valid email address will be required. With the download, Cymatics will automatically add you to their newsletter.
