If your low frequencies are sounding muddy and you want an easy (and free) way of adding some clarity, Brainworx thinks it has the solution in the form of the bx_subfilter plugin.
This borrows the filter section from the company’s bx_subsynth, and promises to let you tighten up your bottom end using just four knobs. It’s suggested that you can use bx_subfilter on basslines and kick drums as an alternative to more complicated EQ plugins.
Brainworx bx_subfilter can be downloaded for free by anyone who has a Plugin Alliance account. It’s available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.
Brainworx bx_subfilter features
- Tight Punch knob implements a resonant high-pass filter that’s especially formulated for cutting problem frequencies in bass-heavy tracks
- Resonance selector applies three peak settings to the filter - Low, High and Extreme - for accentuating punch while taming low-end rumble
- Low End control applies a post-Tight Punch fixed bandpass filter, to achieve that perfect frequency balance
- Input/output gain controls for level matching and preventing clipping
