SPL's Transient Designer 2 is a unique dynamic processor, made up of analog parts and very simple in make up. I don't know what types of connections the unit has it the back since the one I've used was already in the rack mount in the studio that I used it at. It is two separate channels that will only take up a single space in a traditional rack casing.

UTILIZATION

The way that the SPL Transient Designer 2 is configured makes it extremely easy to use. Each of the two channels have the same very simple make up. There are just parameters for attack and sustain, with a button between the two channels to link them as a stereo pair if you so choose. That is honestly all that you need to know about the Transient Designer, although it will take you a minute or two to see exactly how these parameters will affect your sound, since this isn't your typical processor. I haven't seen the manual for the SPL Transient Designer 2, so I can't say how well put together it is or not.

SOUND QUALITY

What the SPL Transient Designer 2 does to your sound is unlike any other dynamic processor that I have heard. It is perfect for touching up your signal and smoothing over the attack, or getting that brilliant sustain on your signal that can be so elusive. A lot engineers swear by the Transient Designer, and is one that is pretty underrated. It is hard to describe in words how the Transient Designer 2 will affect your sound until you've actually had a listen to it for yourself, so if you're interested in it I would highly recommend seeking one out to try.

OVERALL OPINION

Surprisingly, the SPL Transient Designer 2 does not cost nearly as much as you would expect it to. Not only is this a unique dynamic processor that is unlike any other that I've used, but it is made extremely well and is very easy to use. This is certainly a professionals piece of gear, as it isn't like the Transient Designer will be the first piece of gear that you look at if you're putting together a home studio, but the price definitely makes it accessible to studio owners of any type.
