BitterSweet Pro
BitterSweet Pro is the result of the improved algorithms found in Flux’s acclaimed transient processor freeware (BitterSweet), that has been used by hundreds of thousands of users all over the world.

One of the main features of BitterSweet Pro is the Frequency Dependent Transient algorithm that provides the ability to process only a certain part of the frequency spectrum. It acts like a dynamic equalizer driven by Transients and/or Sustain.

What is a Transient Designer?

A Transient Designer is in its basic form a tool to manipulate the attack and/or sustain portion of a sound source.

Common Applications:

Make your drums cut through the mix, sound punchy, alive and have energy to drive a song by increasing the amplitude of their transients directly on tracks or soften transients to make a kit sound more roomy.

Increase your sustain on your guitar or bass with Bittersweet Pro. You can also set a frequency range to enact this process and extend low-end frequencies in a Rock driven track for example.

Flavour your room mics, increase the apparent size with sustain, enhance and excite the ambience with transient attack, and virtualise reflective materials at selective frequencies.

Product Features

  • Up to 8 channels Input/Output
  • Output Gain -24.00 dB / +24.00 dB gain range (applied to the processing output before the soft clipper)
  • Soft clipper at the very last stage of the processing path carefully rounding the edges of the clipped peaks for a smoother clipping.
  • Preset and Parameter Handling
  • Preset/Parameter slots
  • To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a “Global Preset” containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the “Morphing Slider”, can be saved.
