DS-10 is a transient shaper designed specifically for use with drums. The clutter-free interface lets you dial in just the right amount of punch in your drum mixes while three amazing algorithms provide great-sounding results.
The MOJO processor lets you shape the transients in specially chosen frequency bands while leaving other bands unaffected, opening up a world of exciting sound design possibilities.
Designed Specifically for Drums
Unlike most other transient shaping products, the DS10 Drum Shaper is built specifically for use with drums. By choosing to focus only on drums, we have been able to create a powerful plugin with a simple user interface that lets you tame transients and achieve perfectly punchy mixes in seconds.
DS-10 Drum Shaper has three modes of operation: Kick, Snare, and Bus. Each mode is tuned under-the-hood to help you get outstanding drum mixes with minimal fuss. Just select what kind of sounds you are passing through DS-10 and use the Attack and Sustain knobs to dial in sublime, punchy drum mixes.
Three Amazing Algorithms
Say goodbye to grainy and unnatural sounding transients. Our newly developed Natural algorithm provides artifact-free transient shaping, even when pushing your sound into extreme territories. To give you more options, we also include a Smooth algorithm with an extra-long release time giving you parallel compression-like results.
Finally, it includes a Classic algorithm featuring the beloved transient shaper from Addictive Drums 2. This algorithm has a more raw sound that can get the popular "pumping" effect in your tracks.
With these three fantastic algorithms, you will have everything you need to make your drums shine.
Add Flavor and Color with MOJO
This unique technology uses tuned transient shaping to achieve EQ and compression-like results in situations where traditional EQs and compressors would have limited benefit. This opens up a world of exciting sound design possibilities ranging from minimal polishing to extreme mangling.
MOJO works by letting you shape transients only in specific frequency bands of your track while leaving other frequency bands and non-transients unaffected. This lets you control the low-end "tightness" of a kick drum, add or remove midrange "body" from a snare, or tune the high-frequency "presence" of a drum mix.
