Bitter Sweet II is a freeware dynamic processor for managing audio transients, available in RTAS VST & AU formats for Windows & Mac.
Bitter Sweet II is especially active on loud percussive tracks.
Turning the central button on the sweet side, decreases the transients amplitude. On the bitter side, the transients amplitude is magnified.
Bitter-Sweet also features a control for the signal to be processed. When the main position is engaged, the process affects the stereo signal. If Center is engaged, only the M signal of the internal MS matrix is processed. If stereo is selected, only the S signal from the MS matrix is processed.
As all Flux:: plug-ins it features 64 bit floating point processing, up to 8 channels and up to 8 FS (384 KHz). Center and Stereo Mode are only available in stereo (2 channels) processing.
