Overview

Stripped down to only 2 parameters and an intuitive graphic design, bx_boom allows you to tune, attenuate or boost the impact of your kick drum sound at any point during the audio production workflow—even after the final mix or within a full drum loop.

The bx_boom plugin contains both a mono version perfect for inserting onto a kick drum track, and a stereo version for inserting onto a drum submix buss or full stereo mix of your song.

Features

  • Three different center frequencies; ‘LO’ (32Hz), ‘MID’ (48Hz) & ‘HI’ (64Hz)
  • High-end Brainworx filters.
  • Built in M/S Matrix for M/S stereo tuning
  • Fully automatable
  • Dedicated BYPASS switch
  • "Mouse Over" feature: adjust parameters by holding the mouse over any knob and simply turning the mouse wheel.
  • Direct access: just type any valid number into the text fields for direct access to the exact value

    This is a no nonsense kick drum processor. I find this very useful when I'm stuck with all the drums on a stereo channel.

    It certainly makes sounds go boom. Would be more useful if there were more shaping options. But if you simply need something to get some more boom about it? This will do what it says on the tin!
