Voxengo has announced the release of version 2.0 of BMS, the Bass Management System plug-in for professional surround sound applications. It's now available in AudioUnit and VST plug-in formats for Mac OS X (10.4.11+) and Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) computers.
BMS is able to extract and manipulate low-frequency content of non-LFE channels in up to 7.1 surround configurations. The main purpose of BMS is to simplify evaluation of low-frequency content present in non-LFE channels during mastering. At the same time, it is possible to mix extracted low-frequency content to the LFE ("Low Frequency Effects") channel. An option to remove the extracted signal from non-LFE channels is also available. In BMS you can specify a desired frequency of the crossover filter, and adjust its steepness.
The following features were added to BMS since version 1:
- The "Mute LFE Highs" switch added.
- The "Bypass" management mode added.
- Crossovers are minimum-phase now.
- Maximal crossover steepness is -72 dB/oct now.
- Zero processing latency.
- Multi-platform support.
- Preset manager.
- User interface coloration.
- User interface re-scaling.
- Plug-in instance naming.
- Bypass switch.
Voxengo BMS end-user license is available for purchase on-line for $49.95 (note that if you order in August, 2011, you will receive 10% discount). Upgrading from the previous version costs $19.95 if the previous version was purchased earlier than 90 days from now; otherwise the upgrade is free during this grace period.
Demo version of BMS can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo web site.
