Buy and getFREE

Low-end is one of the most important parts of any modern track but also one of the hardest things in music production to get right. Luckily, Plugin Boutique have combined three of the most essential low-end tools so that your kicks and basses hit-hard in every mix, every time.

Create your sub-bass with the all-in-one sub-bass synthesizer: SubLab. Whether you need hard-hitting basslines, earth-shaking 808's or contemporary kicks… SubLab has you covered.

SubBass Doctor 808 is the ultimate mixing unit for your low-end. Make sure your low-end cuts through in any environment without overloading speaker set-ups.

By combining synthesis and samples, BigKick allows you to sculpt and create your kicks from scratch.

Low-End Theory Bundle is exclusive to Plugin Boutique and available for a limited time only.

Create the Perfect Sub, Every Time.

A new class of synthesizer designed for hip-hop, future bass and trap genres. Create powerful 808 style sub-bass that sounds punchy on every speaker, every time.

Get all the tools you need to sample, layer, widen and distort any kick into a uniquely powerful sub in one plug-in. SubLab’s innovative yet simple mix workflow includes X-Sub™, FAW's psychoacoustic sub-bass oscillator. This newly invented oscillator works as a sub-bass maximizer to achieve consistent, accurate and deep subs on any speaker system.

SubLab comes packed with 6 signature Bass Packs and 250 kick samples meticulously recorded from classic analogue drum machines and modern modular systems. You can also drag and drop your own samples into the sampler and SubLab will automatically detect the pitch of your sample for a faster workflow. Build your own sample library and Bass Packs as you go.

Treating the lowest frequencies is not an easy task. And in some listening environments, it is almost impossible. If you mix while travelling or your mixing room or your system is not 110% perfect, you should see the doctor. Namely SubBass Doctor 808.

Your Subs Can Be Harmful

Of course, you want the pumping subs that shake the body. But without the right treatment, they can get out of control. Although they are inaudible in some environments, wrongly mixed low frequencies can even destroy big PA systems.

Who Needs the Doctor 808

You may want to mix while travelling, you may be producing in a home studio. Your monitors do not deliver the lowest frequencies right or your room is perhaps not 100% acoustically treated. In all these cases you should search for the Doctor.

Get Your Cure

SubBass Doctor 808 is a safety net for all mentioned above. It filters the harmful frequencies and guards the lowest basses not to exceed the healthy limit.

Extra Sub

As SubBass Doctor 808 steals something from the low end, it compensates the loss in healthy sub frequencies ensuring you don't lose even a little bit of the sub-bass power.


To accentuate the low frequencies and to add extra warmth SubBass Doctor 808 adds pleasant parallel saturation. This helps the sub-bass to set off and astonish the audience.

808, 5-String and Double Bass

As the name suggests SubBass Doctor 808 is mainly designed for synth bass and drums. But it is essential when mixing other instruments that reach really low - such as low-B five-string bass or double bass.

Hassle-Free Software Protection

Realistic 3D Yet Flexible GUI

Photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save the valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

64-bit Audio Quality at ANY Sampling Rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart Bypass
