BBE Sonic Sweet features 4 plug-ins that bring the legendary BBE Sound into your latest productions.
BBE Sonic Maximizer
For years professional musicians and studio engineers have known that the BBE Sound Sonic Maximizer is the best way to get that professional sound and extra sparkle that is so difficult to capture. Now you can access BBE processing technology within the digital domain. The BBE Sonic Maximizer plugin is identical to the physical unit it terms of utility and processing.
BBE Harmonic Maximizer
The BBE Sound Harmonic Maximizer increases Presence and Clarity, Restore Natural
Brightness and adds Deeper and Extended Low Frequencies. The BBE Sound Harmonic Maximizer can be used in the studio on individual tracks or an entire mix, or live to enhance the sound of a P.A. system.
BBE Loudness Maximizer
The BBE Loudness Maximizer is a mixing and mastering multi-band limiter plug-in. Its ultimate transparency allows the Loudness Maximizer to 'dramatically' increase the overall level of your mix without audible pumping effects. The BBE Loudness Maximizer uses simple controls, turning the Sensitivity up will increase the level of your overall mix without clipping or overloading.
BBE Mach 3 Bass
Mach 3 Bass will take your low end to new sonic depths. Insert this plug-in on any type off bass instrument or signal where you need a big boost on the low end. Mach 3 Bass allows you to easily dial in the frequency you want to accentuate and "bump the bass".
I only have use for the Sonic Maximizer so I'll not comment on the other plugins.
The Sonic Maximizer has been one of my go-to plugins since I first used it because it doesn't add to the sound spectrum like classic enhancers, it just delays lower frequencies a bit so you can make higher frequencies more audible, it really cleans and clears up sound.
I try it on every channel with knobs at zero. If it doesn't improve the sound, often happens with digital synths or sampled instruments with well-processed samples, I remove it, if it improves the sound I tweak the knobs. Low settings are for good recordings, high settings for trying to fix bad recordings. After that I put EQ in front of it. You need less EQ because the Sonic Maximizer solves problems you want to fix with EQ. I don't use it on the master because every channel needs its own setting, it takes anything to the front.
The new version just sounds better. Less brittle, more silk.
Just a heads up: version 3.00 has a bug, it starts in silence and adds a fade-in of less then half a second when it starts processing. Version 3.10 fixes that bug but the current uploader still installs 3.00, I tested the win32 and OS X installers, same problem.Read Review
