It's really great on loops where you might need the bassdrum to be thicker. Use the Subsynth and there's all the sub in the bassdrum you'll ever need:-)
A great plugin to enhance the low-end of almost any instrument or even full mixes! I love the built-in parallel processing engine because it allows the usage of subtle to extremes settings with the simple adjustment of only one knob.
With it's additional features (saturation, lp/hp - filters, stereo widening) the bx_subsynth is a well-rounded supplement to my "digital gear rack".
Indispensable for enhancing the low end and adding that extra octave!
Ich habe so lange nach dem Geheimnis gesucht wie ich Psytrance Basslines "modern" klingen lassen kann. Bin bei der Suche beinahe IRRE geworden. Bx_Subsynth ist die Lösung. Wo andere Synthis einfach nicht deep genug runter gehen oder anfangen Druck zu vermatschen - macht das Plugin sowas von Dampf. Ja kostet Geld und ja ich war skeptisch. Aber zum ersten mal hatte ich das Gefühl ich kann endlich eine Bassline bauen die mit dem Sound und Druck von Infected Mushroom oder Neelix mithalten kann.
Whenever a little heft is missing from a sound, this is my new go to. The tone of this processor is killer, and I find the results more pleasing than some of the sound 'waves' from competitors products. Keep up the great work, Plugin Alliance!!!
My life was easy before I used subsynth. All I had to do was stick Waves R-Bass on any anemic bass guitar, double-bass, or tympanum and I was all set. With bx_subsynth, there were more tweaks an options to learn. But the benefit was that the synthesized sub-bass always fits source material impeccably. The best plugins are the ones that sound like you haven't used a plugin at all. That's what makes sub_synth so awesome - it gets you that room-shaking sub-bass every time while making it sound like a part of the source material.
Previously I've used the UAD VOG for low end duties, but the bx_subsynth has replaced that plugin for me. Its flexibility allows you to fill out and shape a range of different sounds and can save what might otherwise be a thin-sounding mix.
This is such a wonderful tool to have to draw on in times of need or creativity. It can save weak sounding basses (DI'd or Mic'd) add beef and braun to a lacklustre mix. So many uses, I love it!
This deceptively powerful processor does more than it says on the tin! While there's several other products that add harmonics above the signal you feed it to make bass more audible on small systems, the bx_subsynth goes the other way and creates thickness and weight below the audio that you feed it.
When done well, the result melds into the original sound like it belongs there. Only when you activate bypass and all the weight falls away do you realise how much you've added.
Beyond this there's a saturation circuit that toughens up the sound if you need it, as well as an M/S matrix that lets you blow out the stereo width while simultaneously keeping the low frequencies mono'd if that's what you need.
There's also a HPF with a resonant bump so you can focus the bottom end you're creating while at the same time, filtering out everything below that which you don't need.
On the whole, the bx_subsynth brings a whole lot to the table, well beyond the DBX 120A that it partially emulates.
by the way it generates Sub Harmonics, bx_subsynth is the closest thing to a real DBX120 that I can't think of. The useful M/S processing and the cool EDGE section add even more to all the features .
Thumbs up to Brainworx for another great plug in
