- Punch – Controls the dynamic process with transients treatment and spectral shaping. The more the fist glows the bigger punch you give the loop.
- Dry/Wet – This knob defines how much of the effected sound is mixed in with the original signal. 0 – Only dry sound goes out. 100 only Puncher sound goes out.
- Saturation – Defines the amount of saturation applied on the punch effect – from gentle to harsh.
- Destroy – Triples the amount of saturation defined by the Saturation knob.
- Output – Defines the overall output volume +/-24dB
- Power – Bypasses the effect
How it works
Urban Puncher is an effect that gives a “punch” to your percussive material (drums, percussion). Intended for drum loops but works instantly on anything that you can call drum hit. Your loops will step out of the shadows immediately. Urban Puncher delivers a stronger and more solid feel in no time.
How to use it?
Urban Puncher is a definitive drum improving tool for any urban music producer. It doesn’t matter much if you can put it on your drum channel after or before your EQ or comp. Simply dial how strong the punch your tracks get should be and mix it with the original sound and let Urban Puncher do its magic.
What is a “Punch”? There’s not a simple answer to that. The punch knob controls several processes at the same time. It can be described as an esoteric dynamic process with transients treatment and spectral shaping.
Analogue-like transformer/tube blended emulation of saturation gives the punch a completely different feel. Use it gently to make your track blend in easily or dial the Saturation knob all the way up to get the real street sounds.
And you can even punish your drum loops with the Destroy button. Hitting that triples the values you dial with the saturation knob. That results in a heavier form of distortion.
Although the primary UrbanPuncher intention is for drum loops it is not where you should stop. The plugin can give extra punch to other instruments such as acoustic guitar or piano. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Realistic 3D yet flexible GUI
The photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size – make it smaller to save valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.
64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate
The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.
The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don’t get any click or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.
Intelligent sleep on silence
This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. And if not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all saves the computing sources for other processes.
