Transient Shaping?

    Jan 29 2009 | 1:45 am
    If anyone of you have tried using a transient shaper, you will know it's a bit different from a normal compressor, I'm interested in doing this in msp... I guess I should start out with an envelope follower, but, how do I differentiate between an attack and a release? And what exactly is it doing when it's puch-i-fying the attack, cutting off the release?
    Here's a free transient shaper vst if you want to try the effect out:
    I know I could just use it, however, it's sound quality is far from satisfactory...
    Any ideas would help... cheers
