Our friends at Waves just released a new plug-in called Submarine that Waves claims will enable you to easily add bigger, deeper sub bass to your tracks with unprecedented clarity and low-end accuracy.
Here's what Waves have to say about Submarine:
Sub frequencies are the backbone of modern music production. To really feel the music, you need beats, bass lines and entire mixes to hit hard below the subsonic belt. Yet, many producers struggle to craft massive sub bass content that remains crystal-clear on large sound systems, without muddiness, artifacts or excess rumble.
Submarine’s two sub generators process your source—kicks, bass, even full, busy mixdowns—and cleanly add new subharmonic frequencies up to a full TWO octaves below the precise frequency range you’ve selected.
Submarine’s innovative Organic ReSynthesis engine strips the original signal down to its core elements—carrier, pitch, formant, and envelope— processes them individually, and then reconstructs the audio to create brand new sub frequencies which retain the exact pitch and time of the original signal. The result is deep subharmonic content that is clean, musical, and naturally blends with your source.
The plug-in’s pinpoint-accurate RANGE slider lets you zero in on the exact frequencies from which you want to generate your sub sounds, anywhere between 20–240 Hz: Perfect for when you want to add subharmonics to a full mix, or to an old-school drum break sample—but only surgically to the kick, not to the snare or to other instruments.
