In this video review, Pro Tools Expert Deputy Editor Dan Cooper takes a look at the new transient shaper plug-in Smack Attack from Waves. Although featuring the usual controls commonly found on transient shaper plug-ins, Smack Attack is a transient shaper plug-in on steroids. Both the attack and sustain components feature extended shape, duration and sensitivity controls that when used together offer a wide variety of creative options for transient shaping.
Watch to hear how Smash Attack tastefully shapes drums within a mix and to see how quick and easy it is to creatively mash audio in colourful pumping motions.
