Last year I chose Denise BassXL and don't feel the need for another one that adds harmonics. There's 2 types of bass enhancers. Don't remember the other type.

I took the plunge :)
Good call! Make sure you familiarise yourself with the Trim 'screws', because setting them right is the key to get good results.
Will do. Cheers :tu:
I wonder what happens if I press this button...

bx_subsynth has a better and faster workflow than the rest, and sounds really great. I relied on Maxxbass since it came out ages ago under patent, does wonders on 1.5" speakers still to this day. But I primarily use bx_subsynth since it's so fast and easy to get the results I want.

LoAir goes in the opposite direction which for most synth-reliant music is kinda pointless since you would just generate a clean sub. But it's great in every other situation.

Also, not expressly a bass enhancer or harmonic generator, but take a look at kilohearts disperser. It's a stack of allpass filters that can be pivoted on a specific frequency, so if there is high crest factor, it can be taken down to create more headroom for other stuff (namely, your bass). It's also good for snappy transients due to that headroom.

If I already own MautodynamicEQ and Izotope's Nectar with follow EQ mode should I bother spending extra money on a new plugin when I can track upper and lower harmonics with them and boost/cut based on what it's tracking? I thought about grabbing Mbassador but it seems like it's unnecessary.

MBassador is completely different than MAutoDynamicEQ and Nectar 3.

MBassador synthesizes new subharmonics 1 octave down and 2 octaves down, similar to the way an octave pedal works in the guitar/bass world (e.g. a Boss OC-3 implements the same general idea in hardware).
