Bark of Dog is a bass resonance filter that lets you increase your low end without turning up the flab. I like to think of it as a way to boost the low end while still keeping it under control. While the controls are super simple, the effect that this has on controlling the low end in a mix is pretty exciting.
I had an issue with a third party plug-ins presets not being installed in the correct location. I moved the presets to the correct location, where the plug-in searches for presets, re-opened Studio One and still no presets. After some trouble shooting (repairing disk permissions, etc.) and verifying in another DAW the presets were working correctly I knew I was missing something in Studio One for this to be resolved. I then refreshed the plug-ins folder in Studio One 3 and viola! All the presets appeared.
