EQ and filtering, imaging, compression, and – most dramatically – really good subharmonic synthesis with custom DSP
This is the latest product from the company that introduced Shreddage a number of years ago. It’s an outstanding heavy metal guitar sample library, a true classic (and it’s been updated).
But this is a processing plug-in, not a sample library. Check out their demos – the sub bass is a total kick in the bass, or something like that only less groan-inducing. Anyway, here’s their release:
Impact Soundworks has released Bass Sculptor, a versatile bass processing audio plugin (VST, AU, AAX) featuring four distinct FX modules in a single lightweight UI. It offers surgical EQ & filtering, imaging, compression, and subharmonic synthesis with custom DSP created by programmer Jatin Chowdhury of ChowdhuryDSP.
With both zero latency and mastering-grade linear phase modes, Bass Sculptor is suitable for live use, mixing, and mastering alike. Its uses range from expanding and filling out weak kick drum and bass guitar parts, to cleaning up low-frequency phase issues, smoothing out wild EDM synths, carefully sculpting full mixes, and more.
Four included modules
- Subharmonic generator: True synthesis of sub-frequencies based on the input signal; not just a simple pitch-shifter or octaver
- Bass Imager: Collapses low frequencies to mono using one of three processing modes, ideal for making club-friendly mixes
- Bass EQ & Filter: Surgical high-pass and single-band EQ with both minimal and linear-phase modes
- Bass Compressor: Highly-responsive compression of bass frequencies at up to 10:1 ratio
