- Very usefulI found this really useful to bring out bass guitar and kick drums when mixing. It's really easy to find the sweet spot and the Low End knob really helps clear things up. With so few parameters it's really easy to use the plugin immediately without a learning curve. It's a one trick pony, but one that does it's one trick well.
Only real downside for me is the knob behaviour, which is finicky/annoying. The circular mapping is ill-suited to a mouse, which is a very different interface from a physical knob. Treating up/down movements as increasing or decreasing the value would be a lot more intutive and user friendly. It doesn't make sense that all the way up is 50% and all the way down is either 0% or 100% depending on which side of the button (left/right) your cursor is.
I noticed I'm not the only one who finds the behaviour unweildy - you can see other users strugging in demo videos.
- SubfilterHighly recommended and useful. This little monster replaces cleansweep (hi pass filter) restores the headroom and works great because of the fine tune and gain staging.
With high resonance setting there is a constant sweep if applied to an electronic kick drum which is very useful for some experimental music.
- bx_subfilter - Instant Magic!This plug-in is wonderful. It's given hours of my life back! It gets straight to the point and instantly works the magic. Both an enhancer or problem solver - no more time and frustration spent trying to get sounds to sit just how you like. This can toughen, give depth and fullness, richness and weight without squeezing the life and dynamics. This can take a push without any harsh, plastic sound or distortion. Another heavy weight yet organic and sweet tool for your arsenal!
- bx_subfilterYour low end´s best friend,
Thank you Brainworx´s for this little badboy!
- EVERY MIXThis plugin will make it into every mix from here on. it's THAT good! It also may have saved my marriage!
- Fantastic !!Very efficient and easy way to focus in on the fundamental frequency of percussive elements while simultaneously balancing low end rumble according to taste. This little magic wonder will transform your kick drum, snare, tom etc in seconds and save you hours of work. I love it !
- Not just for bass guitar and drumsI just used this thing on an orchestral string bass track.
Its low frequencies really punch through.
This is especially true when track hits the lower octaves.
Very happy with this.
Thanks for the plug-in.
- Great pluginIt really makes my kick sound tight... And bass synth as well. Loving this free beast.
- BX Sub FilterYep, does what they say..creates a tightening at the low end that would take a lot of fiddling around to create otherwise. I would like to know how they did it!
- It's sexy.I really love the bx_subsynth but this free little brother is sweet as fux too.
