BitterSweet Pro is the evolution of FLUX:: well renowned freeware transient processor, BitterSweet. One of the main features is its ability to process only a certain part of the frequency spectrum, providing extended control of the transient shaping, acting like a dynamic equalizer driven by transients and/or sustain.
- Up to 8 channels Input/Output
- Frequency Range sets the actual frequency range to be processed (20 Hz / 20,0 kHz – Lower / 40 Hz / 20,0 kHz – Upper). The frequency extraction can be audited with a simple button click.
- Detector sidechain filtered in accordance with the frequency range setting and its low cut, high cut and band pass filter, the filtered sidechain extraction can be audited with a simple button click.
- Speed, alters the mode for the processing of the transients, controlling the envelope smoothing and generating a natural attack (Fast/Medium/Slow).
- Attack, Hold, Release, adjusting the attack, hold and release times for the transient processing.
- Dynamic gain adjusting the gain of the transients and/or the sustain (-100,00% – Sweet / 100,00% – Bitter)
- Static Gain controls the actual gain of the Frequency Range filter envelope ( -24.00 dB / +24.00 dB).
- Output Gain -24.00 dB / +24.00 dB gain range (applied to the processing output before the soft clipper)
- Geek pane (advanced settings) with an additional range of parameters providing extended control of the transient processing envelope.
Preset and Parameter Handling
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.
Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation
The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.
The preset manager contains three preset banks; Factory bank, which Contains factory presets. Saving presets in the Factory bank is not allowed, but any of the Factory presets can be recalled into a preset section and then saved into the User bank instead, which ontains user presets only. The Global bank contains Global presets. A Global preset is a complete snapshot with all the settings from both of the preset sections as well as the position of the Preset A/B Switch
