The Bass XL adds weight, and also works great on melodic content. Enhance a bass or electric guitar, a kick drum, sub bass, percussion track or a whole drum sub mix. The plugin features the following highlights: • Tone dial: for full control over the character and color of your boost. • Ability to solo the added bass for reference or apply additional effects like saturation or distortion. • Volume independent drive: for a consistent sound in dynamic tracks.. • Different filter slopes for a defined sound. • Low CPU usage. • No need for dongles or complex licence managers. What’s great about the Bass XL is how fast and precisely you can work with it. Choose which frequency to boost, apply the boost with the mix control and then choose a filter slope to set the width of the boost. Steep slopes make the boost sound more resonant and precise, while gentle slopes make the boost sound more gradual and warm. Saturate and colour the sound with the drive and tone control. Repeat steps until happy with the results. For an extra tight or loose sound, use the ‘position’ to move the bass boost backwards and forwards in time.SHOW LESS
1. “You like your mix, but it’s not sounding fat enough in the low end.” Creating a fat sounding track requires a powerful but defined and controlled low end, which is not an easy thing to accomplish. Regular EQ and compression might only take you so far. With the Bass XL you can quickly dial in a defined low end boost that will push and color the low end of your mix or bus in an extremely controlled and precise way. 2. “You like the overall sound and attack of your kick drum, but the low end is not consistent enough.” It can be hard to control the low end dynamics of an inconsistent kick drum or any live recorded percussion instrument with regular EQ and compression. With the Bass XL you can easily dial in a consistent punchy sound around 80hz to 100hz, additional chesty sub around 60hz, or general warmth to even out the low end of your recordings, especially with higher drive settings. 3. “Your bass line’s low end lacks definition or power on certain notes and won’t sustain your mix.” Recording a stable bass part can be difficult, especially when recorded in a room with compromised acoustics. When certain notes in your recording lack definition or power, or are overly resonant, you can apply small EQ cuts to even out the bass completely and then apply Bass XL to boost the low end as a whole again for a more balanced low end.
MIX (0% to 100%): Mixes in the bass boost. Set to 0%, the plug-in is fully transparent. INPUT (-24dB to 24dB): Input gain that lets you boost or attenuate the signal going in, giving you more control over the signal. OUTPUT (-24dB to 24dB): Output gain that lets you boost or attenuate the signal going out, giving you more control over the signal. FREQUENCY (20hz to 320hz): Lets you set the frequency of the bass boost. DRIVE AND TONE (0% to 100%): Drive and tone control that lets you saturate the bass boost and control the drive’s harmonic mix. POSITION (-50ms to 50ms) Lets you position the bass boost backwards or forwards in time. When turned on, the plugin has latency. (Some DAWs will only update their delay compensation after pressing play again!) LINK (on/off): Link control to force the bass boost to be mono. STYLE (6db / 12db / 24db / 48db): Slope control that lets you set the frequency rolloff of the frequency range that is boosted. SOLO (on/off): A switch that mutes the original source signal, so you can listen to the added bass boost in more detail, or apply additional processing to just the bass boost further in your effects chain.
