G-Sonique has announced the planned May 2008 release of XBass4000, a new and unique VST effect plug-in for "maximal kick-up of the bass frequencies".
The virtual circuits of the XBass4000 combine two different algorithms for emphasizing the bass spectrum of the track:
- A psychoacoustic algorithm BassEnhancer that emphasize the intensity of hearable bass content.
- An analog style saturation unit that enriches bass spectrum of a requested "fat" and "warm" sounds known from tube circuits. It also adds higher harmonic frequencies that expands and enlightens the hearable spectrum as well as sub-bass spectrum.
XBass4000 will be available for Windows as a VST effect plug-in. Pricing has not yet been announced.
