What is the Transient Engine? Back to knowledge base
This new feature is designed to improve Reformer Pro’s response to quick, sharp transient inputs, and also to add extra definition to the response of your Reformer libraries. This new feature is ideal for libraries such as impacts or sharp quick transient events, allowing you to perform and trigger these sections of your material in real-time using an audio input or MIDI, and add extra definition to your sounds.
When you analyse a folder of samples using the Analysis Tool, sections of audio with a sharp attack, followed by a steady decay, will now be automatically identified and made available to the transient engine.
To make use of this feature, your content will need to contain sharper, more ‘transient-like’ sections. Libraries with only smooth, constant material may not be useful, or may not allow the Transient Engine to identify useful material.
