TransGainer is an audio plug-in suitable for a wide range of professional music production uses, implements an audio signal envelope adjustment algorithm that reacts on transients rather than on a signal's loudness level. This algorithm allows you to adjust the volume of attack and sustain stages of any sounds you use it on. TransGainer was designed in a way to be suitable for all possible sound sources – be it individual tracks or full mixes.
In many cases TransGainer can be used in place of gate and expander plug-ins while delivering a better sound and offering an easier control. Beside that, TransGainer can be used for audio recording restoration/re-mastering purposes and reverb tail modifications with excellent results, according to Voxengo.
TransGainer allows you to specify gain adjustments for a sound's transient and sustain stages separately. You can also choose an expected average time between transients so that algorithm delivers you the most precise results possible.

New in v1.4
- Bugfixx for interface freezing on Mac OS X 10.8
- Various bugfixes
- New processing algorithm
New in v1.1
- An algorithmic issue that produces high-frequency damping/overboost was fixed. Unfortunately, this made presets created in the previous version of this plug-in not fully transferable to the new version in terms of the sound. But the overall sound did improve considerably.
- The "Mode" selector implemented which provides a lot of flexibility to the plug-in.
- The "Auto" switch implemented which enables automatic Detect Delay and Contour parameter value selection (no program dependency assumed).
