Envolution is a frequency-dependent envelope shaper with separate transient and sustain sections to radically re-shape the sonic envelope of your instruments or audio.

Use a broader tilt mode or the more parametric-style focus mode to choose which frequencies are processed.

Insert on a track, bus or even master output to add presence/distance to drums, piano, guitar and any other percussive content. Boost sustain to make the ambience around a recording bloom, or cut it for quick and precise gating.

We love the more creative and extreme side of the plug-in too; like using the DIFF button to generate negative ratio compression effects!


  • Frequency dependent control of Transients & Sustain
  • Tilt/parametric targeting of frequencies to process
  • DIFF button to solo the effect
  • Use in parallel without phase cancellation
  • Warmth control for:
  • Harmonic saturation/tone shaping 
  • Prevention of excessive output levels 
  • Many great presets to get you started
