A little plugin for bringing out your kick drum in the mix. We all know the importance of the kick drum sound to the mix. It can make or break it for a lot of mixes alone. So what is this little and very simple plugin? Basically it's just an adjustable rotating knob for the amount needed and a three position switch for the frequency that needs adjustment, and that's it. Will Bx Boom get you Lars from Metallica kick drum sound all on it's own? No, but it is great for enhancement of your kick. It is taken from the Brainworx dynEQ and compressor and it is fully automatable. I love using it to boost the kick drum on the mono kick drum track and even found success using the stereo version on a drum loops track as well. I found this little gem at the Plugin Alliance website. BX Boom is formated for AAX, VST, And AU for Mac and PC. What I love about it is it ease of use and getting a nice ful result fast. This plugin will add some depth to your kick drum, you could also add parallel compression and get simular and more detailed type results, but the charm here is that it this is a very simple and quick way to give you a real nice enhancement for your kick drum or drum loops. Sometimes you can find it on sale at Plugin Alliance $29.00 USD. if so grab one! However, If it's not on sale the list price $75.00 USD. I find pricy for what it does.
