G-sonique XBass4000 Released
G-Sonique has released the XBass4000, a new VST effect plug-in for maximal kick-up of the bass frequencies.
The virtual circuits of the XBass4000 combine the two different algorithms emphasizing the bass spectrum of the track:
- a psychoacoustic algorithm BassEnhancer that emphasize the intensity of hearable bass content
- an analog style saturation unit that enriches bass spectrum of a requested "fat" and "warm" sounds known from tube circuits. It also adds higher harmonic frequencies that expands and enlightens the hearable spectrum as well as sub-bass spectrum
- A special distorted bass bell filter for a selection of bass spectrum that should be maximally emphasized. It's possible to select wide spectrum of the bass frequencies
- from the deepest sub-basses 15hz to medium-bass frequencies. It's also possible to set a Slope-Q range of the selected frequencies.
- A psychoacoustic circuit called Bass Enhancer that emphasize the intensity of the bass spectrum. It uses the technique of the psychoacoustic algorithms.
- A saturation unit in analog tube style with a possibility to adjust the amount of the bass saturation and the volume of hearable bass saturation.
- Control of the output volume
- Graphical dB meter showing the level of output volume The XBass4000 costs €15 only. A demo version is avaiable.
