About

Unfiltered Audio is a music software company from Southern California. It was founded with one simple idea: music software should be created by musicians. Joshua Dickinson studied composition at Columbia University in New York City. After stumbling into a full-wall RCA Mark II at the Computer Music Center, he became obsessed with signal processing, custom instruments, and computer-aided creativity.

Michael Hetrick, PhDC, studied digital media at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee while working as a Pro Tools tech for local studios. His passion for modular synthesizers and experimental sound design has led him towards a goal of developing performance-focused interfaces for feature-rich audio processors.

They joined forces with Dr. Ryan Michael McGee at UC Santa Barbara while working on their Masters degrees in the prestigious Media Arts and Technology department. There, they trained under some of the greatest minds in DSP and music technology while receiving guidance in developing their own cutting-edge algorithms. After releasing their first two plugins, Sandman and G8, they have received awards from many sources, including the Audio Engineering Society and Computer Music Magazine.

    The cool thing about Bass-Mint is not using it on bass, and it still sounds magical.

    Bass-Mint is an epic solution to an age-old problem - how do I get more consistent and punchy bass and sub information in my kicks and basslines? Bass-Mint is the glue to bind this difficult part of the frequency spectrum. It’s replaced VOG and Bark of the Dog as my go-to bass enhancement and management tool.

    I love how Bass-Mint can be an effect as opposed to only being a utility for subsonic bass enhancement. I found I could easily use it for creative sound design with all my analog synths, Eurorack, instruments, and drum machines; the added sub-bottom is clear, defined, and smooth. The Synthesize mode is super cool for acoustic kick drums because it adds an almost “unreal” electronic 808 style tuned tail. It was literally like threading it through one of my drum machines.
