BABY Audio releases Transit, a multi-effect for designing transitions. We’re taking a closer look at the plugin and giving away one FREE copy to one lucky BPB reader!
Transit ($59 intro price – usually $99), a multi-effects transition design plugin for macOS and Windows, is the latest release from a developer fast becoming one of my favorites, Baby Audio.
This time, the developer has teamed up with producer and popular YouTube musician/educator Andrew Huang.
Many of you have probably seen Andrew’s videos, which range from making music with random items (including a rubber chicken) to cover songs, original releases, and production tutorials. The quirky stuff on his channel is a lot of fun, but the serious stuff is very useful; he’s an absolute powerhouse musician.
Transit is a transition designer that does two things: it allows you to make incredibly complex transitions and makes it incredibly easy. It’s easy because Transit enables you to do things from a single user-friendly plugin that would previously have required multiple tracks, plugins, and automation lanes.
Transit helps you create interesting build-ups, massive drops, motion effects, risers, sweeps, and anything else that takes you from one section to the next.
The plugin offers eighteen custom-designed effect modules that are assignable across seven available slots.
Available effects modules include AutoPan – BitCrusher – Chorus – Delay – Distortion – Filter 12 – Filter 24 – Flanger – Noise – Osc – OTT -Phaser – Pitch Shift – Pump – Reverb – Spread – Tremolo – Utility.
You can see from the included modules whether you’re working on a House anthem, a Pop hook, or a captivating film trailer, you have everything you need for epic transitions.
As you load effects modules, you’ll see appropriate parameter controls for each. The magic of Transit lies in the ability to assign every parameter (or as many as you like) to the global Macro Control, the Transition knob.
Once you assign parameters to the Transition knob and set start/end amounts, you have one knob controlling an incredible amount of movement across (up to) seven effects modules and countless parameters. Now, you can automate the Transition knob (Macro Control) and forget needing more automation lanes.
Working inside Transit is easy because everything is clear to see, and it makes your workflow much neater, which will be a real timesaver down the line. Of course, it’s also useful as a static effect without automation.
Transit comes with over 300 presets suitable across a mix or single tracks, and it has an intelligent randomizer.
Another key feature of Transit is Sequencer Mode, which lets you trigger DAW-synced transitions, meaning you can avoid automation lanes altogether. You can set the length of your transition, then hit play, and it will start on the next bar; the play/stop buttons are MIDI assignable, so it’s ideal for live use.
Inside Sequencer Mode, you’ll find Pendulum and Loop Modes. Loop mode is exciting because it gives you this powerful LFO tool that throws up unexpected effects you can fade in and out or let run wild.
Transitions are often a sticking point in composition and production; it’s not uncommon to have points A and B in your mind but still be unsure how to get from one to the other.
I’m lucky enough to have spent a little time with Transit, and it really does make things easier. I’m only scratching the surface here; it’s a plugin you can easily get lost in but lost creatively, not left in a confused, unenthusiastic state because you’ve lost control of what’s happening – I already like it a lot!
Transit is available in AU, VST, and AAX formats for macOS (10.7 upwards) and Windows (7 upwards).
