    There's so much specific bottom end available on this thing you'd be advised to keep a spare set of speakers around... It fills your room and anchors the bass.

    The dbx120 was basically the .1 in 5.1 until we went purely digital. I've missed it. The bx_subsynth brings back a flavour unlike any other for low end. Essential.

    My new go to weapon for low end sound design. I am amazed at the full control of all aspects in the bottom end; it really does things I didn’t think were possible and is especially useful for mixes that just can’t be leveled in the mix, but need a sub layer. It also has evil dirt abilities as a huge bonus. A must have processor!

    There are a lot of plugins out there that can add upper harmonics to your signal in various ways, but being able to add subharmonics which actually sound great and natural as if they came from the original source -- that is a unique and powerful tool. I especially like the 56-80 Hz range on signals that need that extra sub octave. Very useful!

    At last, a subsonic processor with the level of control needed for contemporary electronica, club and cinematic productions. Another perfectly future-retro release from Brainworx that will be heard in a cinema near you very soon.

    This plugin lets you to add some beef to your kick drum all the way up to turning it into a sub destroyer!

    bx_subsynth isn't an EQ. It generates ultra-low bottom end from the source where little or none exists and then gives you an array of innovative tools to sculpt your newfound bottom end to make truly unique sounds your own. Say goodbye to thin kicks, toms and synths.

    So you want to add a lower octave to your part, but not have to create a detuned version with lots of artefacts. Look no further. The bx_subsynth adds lower octaves in the sub register that are perfectly suited to the part they are applied to. Fabulous in mixes to give an instrument or voice that extra "omph" or a smooth bottom end. Love this plugin.

    A great secret weapon for adding body and low-end energy to all sorts of program material. Great for sound design as much as finding uses in turning a simple sine wave into utterly delicious insanity.
