Waves Audio Introduces Submarine, a Two-Octave Subharmonic Generator Plugin

Interface for Waves Submarine plugin, a two-octave subharmonic generator plugin

Waves Audio, world developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and maker of audio plugins for mixing, music production, mastering, sound design, broadcast, post-production, and live sound, introduces Waves Submarine, a two-octave subharmonic generator plugin.

Sub frequencies are the backbone of modern music production. To really feel the music, you need beats, basslines, and entire mixes to hit hard below the subsonic belt. Yet, many producers struggle to craft massive sub bass content that remains crystal-clear on large sound systems, without muddiness, artifacts or excess rumble. Submarine adds bigger, deeper sub bass to your tracks, with unprecedented clarity and low-end accuracy. Powered by Waves' Organic ReSynthesis technology, Submarine's two subharmonic generators deliver well-balanced subsonic results on any large sound system.

Submarine's two sub generators process your source - kicks, bass, even full busy mixdowns - and cleanly add new subharmonic frequencies up to a full TWO octaves below the precise frequency range selected. The plugin's Organic ReSynthesis engine strips the original signal down to its core elements - carrier, pitch, formant, and envelope - processes them individually, and then reconstructs the audio to create brand new sub frequencies which retain the exact pitch and time of the original signal. The result is deep subharmonic content that is clean and musical and naturally blends with your source. The plugin's pinpoint-accurate RANGE slider lets you zero in on the exact frequencies from which you want to generate your sub sounds, anywhere between 20Hz - 240 Hz - perfect when you want to add subharmonics to a full mix, or to an old-school drum break sample, but only surgically to the kick, not to the snare or to other instruments.

Use the DRIVE control to saturate the added subs and easily glue them into the rest of the mix. Use the DYNAMICS knob to go from short transient sub sounds, to heavier compression for longer sustained sub notes.

This plugin helps when a low-end EQ boost won't (because your track lacks low frequencies to begin with), or where psychoacoustic bass enhancers like Waves' Renaissance Bass plugin won't be enough (because they work their magic on small speakers, not on big subwoofers). With the Waves Submarine plugin, you can dive as deep as you want, with better clarity throughout the low end, the company says.

Submarine features:
• Subharmonic generation plugin powered by Organic ReSynthesis technology
• Two subharmonic generators (Sub -1 and Sub -2) add subs ONE and TWO full octaves below the selected frequency range of your source
• High-precision Frequency Range slider (20-240 Hz) to target precise frequencies
• Drive saturation control to easily glue the added subs into the mix
• Dynamics control to go from short sub transients to longer sustained sub notes
• Selectable Mono/Stereo control
• Dry/Wet control for parallel mixing
• Zero latency for real-time mixing; SoundGrid-compatible
• Presets by GRAMMY®-winning producers & mix engineers
