"Used it for all of 5 minutes and I'm in love!"

"Sprinkling this on a long acid line with subtle distortion creates a hollow eerie sound with just the right amount of glittering high end drifting over."

Lazer sharp tool for creating a massive and controlled low end for your tracks in seconds. compression and EQ: eat your heart out.

The Bass XL adds weight and also works great on melodic content. Enhance a bass or electric guitar, a kick drum, sub-bass, percussion track or a whole drum sub-mix.


  • Tone Dial - Full control over the character and colour of your boost.
  • Volume Independent Drive - A consistent sound in dynamic tracks.
  • Low CPU usage - Different filter slopes and position the low-end boost in time.
  • Easy to Use - Simple for creating a massive and controlled low end.
  • No need for dongles or complex licence managers.
  • Fully resizable interface

What’s great about the Bass XL is how fast and precisely you can work with it. Choose which frequency to boost, apply the boost with the mix control and then choose a filter slope to set the width of the boost. Steep slopes make the boost sound more resonant and precise, while gentle slopes make the boost sound more gradual and warm. Saturate and colour the sound with the drive and tone control. Repeat steps until happy with the results. For an extra tight or loose sound, use the ‘position’ to move the bass boost backwards and forwards in time.

Use Cases

1. “You like your mix, but it’s not sounding fat enough in the low end.” Creating a fat-sounding track requires a powerful but defined and controlled low end, which is not an easy thing to accomplish. Regular EQ and compression might only take you so far. With the Bass XL, you can quickly dial in a defined low-end boost that will push and colour the low end of your mix or bus in an extremely controlled and precise way.
2. “You like the overall sound and attack of your kick drum, but the low end is not consistent enough.” It can be hard to control the low-end dynamics of an inconsistent kick drum or any live recorded percussion instrument with regular EQ and compression. With the Bass XL, you can easily dial in a consistent punchy sound around 80hz to 100hz, additional chesty sub around 60hz, or general warmth to even out the low end of your recordings, especially with higher drive settings.
3. “Your bass line’s low end lacks definition or power on certain notes and won’t sustain your mix.” Recording a stable bass part can be difficult, especially when recorded in a room with compromised acoustics. When certain notes in your recording lack definition or power, or are overly resonant, you can apply small EQ cuts to even out the bass completely and then apply Bass XL to boost the low end as a whole again for a more balanced low end.
