Voxengo has announced the release of LF Max Punch, an audio effect plug-in for music and sounds where low-frequency thump and punch are most welcome, and where distortion is applied specifically to bring the bass sound to life. LF Max Punch provides a low-frequency effect specially designed for serious contemporary music producers offering them a convenient tool for applying a smooth punch and oomph to audio tracks and sounds.
LF Max Punch plug-in dynamically emphasizes selected bass frequency band, applies a smooth saturation over it, and produces additional sub-harmonic content, with the ability to blend it with the original bass band sound. Optional compression can then be applied to the resulting low-frequency sound. LF Max Punch first splits the broad-band signal into low- and high-frequency bands and then applies the aforementioned effects to the lower band only.
This effect can be applied over a wide range of sound material: drum tracks, bass tracks, contemporary music mixes: rap, trance, club music; also rock music can benefit from LF Max Punch's low-frequency enhancements.

A separate binary distribution file is available for each target computer platform for each plug-in format.
One-month introductory price of $55.95 is now effective, which is 20% off the regular price. Upgrading from both previously available LF-Max and LF-Punch plug-ins costs $34.95 if they were purchased earlier than 90 days from now: otherwise upgrade is free during this grace period.
