Waves Trans-X Transient Shaper Is FREE @ Attack Magazine


Attack Magazine offers Waves Audio’s Trans-X ($99 retail price) transient shaper plugin as a free download until April 8th, 2022.

Trans-X is a transient shaper plugin by Waves Audio. It’s designed to boost or attenuate the transients in drum recordings and other percussive material.

The plugin includes two components: Multi (4-band) and Wide (wideband).

Trans-X Wide is the wideband component that processes the entire frequency spectrum. You can use it to apply broad changes, and it’s generally suitable for less complex audio material.

Trans-X Multi is a multi-band transient shaper that lets you focus on a particular area of the spectrum. This is useful when working on a more complex signal, such as a stereo drum track. You can use the plugin to only boost the bass drum transient while leaving the rest of the signal unaffected.

The plugin comes with full undo/redo functionality, preset management, and other features we’re used to seeing in Waves Audio plugins.

Trans-X typically costs $99 (currently on sale for $29), but you can get it for free via Attack Magazine.

Here’s how Attack Magazine describes Trans-X: “The Waves Trans-X is a very powerful transient shaper. If you’re not familiar with transient shaping, then there’s a good chance your tracks don’t have ‘punch.’ Transient shaping is perfect for adding more kick to your kick, accentuating the attack of your snare, but also for modifying room acoustics.”

 To claim your free Waves Audio Trans-X plugin license, visit the promo page linked below and follow the instructions. You will receive a unique serial code via email after signing up by submitting your name and email address.

UPDATE #1: Forgot to mention this in the comments, but thanks to BPB readers Kaspars and James H. for the info about the freebie!

UPDATE #2: It seems that there’s a delay when signing up for the freebie. Some readers are seeing an error message, but the email with the code does arrive eventually, reportedly. I’ll update the article again if I receive fresh info.

    • Quiero dejar claro que aunque aparezca el mensaje de error y no haya ninguna confirmación de que has hecho el pedido, te llegará un email con el código único del producto Trans x para después descargarlo e instalarlo en Waves Central. Solo hay que esperar y tener paciencia. Yo lo hice una vez y tambien creí que la cosa no funcionaba, pero pasado un tiempo mire mi correo y vi que tenía el email con el código o licencia del producto. Ahora TRANS-X esta en mi DAW.
      Al introducir la licencia en Waves central para instalar y activar el producto me dio mensaje de licencia no válida. Es porque seguramente hay algún espacio entre los números de la licencia. Se arregla eliminando ese espacio. Un saludo.

    “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”

    Getting an error after submitting.

  3. Doesn’t work when i fill in the form i get the folowing:

    There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.

  4. “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”

    I have an error after submit

  5. This is suspicious.
    When I want to close or refresh the page, the secrutiy settings of my browser alarm me it’s unsafe.

    In addition to that the page says “cannot process, please try again later” over nearly 6 hours now.

    Be careful.

  6. I tried to sign up about 10 times and I only ever saw “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.” I went away to do other things for 40 minutes and when I came back I had the serial from them in my email.

    So its a bit scuffed but should be working

  7. I too received multiple times the error “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”

    However, after an hour I found the email with my serial number without doing anything else.

    Maybe the server is just a little too busy? I don’t know, but yeah, I have the plugin on my computer now. Thanks BPB!

    Got my serial and already activated. works fine. thanks! I think BPB generated some traffic to the site. A bit bigger than they expected.

  9. Tried several email addresses as sometimes these forms won’t take gmail addresses…

    Still getting

    “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”

      Give it an hour or two and check those emails again. There seems to be a delay on the server side.

  10. got the error message on the sign up page, too

    about 60-70 minutes later, the mail arrived WITH a code, which I could successfully redeem at Waves without any problem.

  11. Code arrived eventually even though I only ever saw the error message. Depending on your email account/settings, don’t forget to check in locations other than your Primary mail. The email with my code was auto sorted into my Promotions folder. Cheers.

  12. Yes Tomislav, yesterday I received the Email, in spite of the error message
    I made the request with two Emails and I received the serial both
    It is for real!

  13. Important – if you tried couple times with same email adress and still get error message change into different one.
    Looks like mailinglist server is blocking adresses that had been uploaded multiple times (I think over 5 times when it detects those as a spam).
    Got mine code after 2nd attempt with backup emial.

    • Thanks Adam, good advice … after trying repeatedly with one email account (all to no avail) I then tried with another email and hey presto, my code drops into my inbox within 40 mins! All installed and working. Happy bunny 😊 Good luck to anyone else still struggling.

    I just warn you that the link of your freebie Waves “Trans-X” where you have to register your name and your email address, to get it, there is systematically an error message, which advises us to try again, Since April 04 I try without success, I am disappointed to miss this opportunity.
