bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synth
Even with moderate use, it transforms perception of low end into a whole new experience.
Subtle Thickening to Big Boom
I almost didn't buy this plugin as I was thinking of it as an occasional use novelty effect. Glad I changed my mind! I use it all the time, on kick drum, bass guitar, synth bass, keys, sax and the mix buss in all styles of music. Yes it can be over the top and showy but I find it really useful as a almost-not-there enhancer which you quickly notice if you switch it off. The interface gives you lots of control in this respect to make sure you get the right balance. The Low Cut knob stops things getting too silly and prevents you adding too much bottom end that isn't obvious until you get onto monitoring with subs. With the Edge and Filter controls, It's surprising how different the three bands can sound - subby, punchy, gritty. The response is snappy too, the attack doesn't seem delayed in any way.
A Good Kind of Punch in The Gut
Wow, this plugin is exactly what dull tracks need. Find sub frequencies where they weren't before, and make them sing with this bad boy. As with everything, be temperament in your coloring- great results are imminent.
Great plugin for squeezing out that bottom octave. Adds a foundation to sounds that EQ alone can't deliver. Easy to overdo though - subtlety is the key for me.
Helpful as a creative tool and as a repair tool
I bought this plugin with the idea of using it mainly on bass and kick drum but I soon ended up using it in various situations: while mastering a track that needed some beefy low-end and on voices, guitars and horns. Of course, there is always the danger of overuse of a plugin like this, especially during the first days after purchase. Nonetheless, if used wisely, it can be helpful both as a creative tool and as a repair tool to fix certain critical situations.
Sinfully Decadent Cabinet Crushing Interior Decorator
I Like Big Bass...I Cannot Lie! BX Sub Synth Is In A Class All By Itself! Easy To Over Do It Though. This Plugin Needs A Trim % Knob To Dial It Back From It's Massiveness. Blends Bass Frequencies Sesmlessly, But Can Get More Compressed Than I Like, but Without Mud or Flabbiness. Use A Good Sub-Woofer To Accurately Dial In Your Level Of Super Fat Ground Shaking Heart Thumping Bassliciousness. P.S. - Don't Blow Up Your Cabinets....You've Been Warned. And...It Is All About The Bass!
Controlling The floor
I find that this plugin really helps with unwanted lows. You can bring down low harmonics for you to give or take the push. I like it allot on Bass GTR and synths. If impact is what you are trying to control this is for you. Just a kiss to bliss
perfect magic plugin
It can make smooth low end.
when we use this plugin on drum or bass.
It make them highlight so nice.
GOOD GOD IT IS SO GOOD ...
i use it almost everything has a low end I love it thank you so much UAD...
this unit is great for certain styles, although i dont understand why the signal flow is different than the gui flow.. ? use this unit gently - especially when your monitors dont reproduce the lowest lows.. :) less is more
Love The bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synth. Get a True 4TH BANG DOWN LOW w/ this one!
Wow! That's all I needed to round out the collection. This is the Cake in my Mixes. I've had the icing on Top......now I'm really Good -to-Go. Love The bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synth. It makes me smile. Love it!
I'm on a subharmonic mission for you baby, I feel the waves you are growing. I picked you up at the UAD store, I feel your undercurrent flowing.
It does the job.
Subsynth is a brilliant plugin. I've only had chance to use it on 3 masters so far. On each one its tightened up the low end, and given the bottom end a smooth sheen. Results are like what I would expect out of a high end pro studio session. Can't wait to try this on Kicks, Synths, Bass and possibly even guitars!...we'll see.
Despite how useful I'm finding it, its quite a finiky plugin. There doesn't seem to be much give between modest sub frequencies and extreme amounts. It may just require getting used too though. When its set right, it really adds a polish and amazing bottom end punch. Definately the best Subharmonic plugin I've ever used.
Not an essential compared to some of the other plugins on the UA platform. So if you're new to UA, pick up some of thier amazing EQ's, compressors and verbs first; but for plugin hoarders, this one might just fill a hole in your plugin collection. It may end up being one of my go-to's in my mastering chain.
And like the promo video said, brilliant on Hip-Hop beats, EDM tracks, but also seems like it would be great for most rock sub-genres too.
Add low end harmonics quickly and perfectly
The BX Subsynth is the perfect low end harmonic additive plugin. This release came at the perfect time. It has increased my mix engineer workflow profoundly.
When you need to generate low end
When you receive files from clients and the bass ain't got the goods, this comes to the rescue.
It's definitely something that either works or not, but when it does, it sounds $$$. The mix knobs also come in handy to make "parallel processing" flawless and phase accurate.
useful? yes. practical? you bet. fun? insanely!
it´s a winner :)
Really like the Stereo Width knob of this one - Great PlugIn overall
another practical tool from bx
bx make a number of useful tools for mixing and mastering.
as a tool bx sub synth covers similar ground to the Little Labs VOG Bass Resonance Plug and also Waves MaxxBass, but in my opinion has superior control and at the end of the day just sounds much better.
great for adding heft to a variety of live or synthetic sounds, drums, synths, effects... it's really worth just trying sources through this plugin.
thanks to bx and UAD for a useful product.
IF you make EDM this is a must!
Using this on low end is amazing. It really carves bass frequencies to have that club or hip hop sound. In 2017, most modern music has great bass that thumps and this helps do the trick. It sounds great on the sub group, or bass aux.
Sounds fantastic. Had the dbx 120x for years. This plugin is much better: more flexible, more control, more sounds. I was waiting for this.
