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

    Instantly adds the correct low end boost to kick drums -- a brilliant little timesaver. BOOM!
