Stretch That Note has announced the release of PULSE, a bass instrument for Native instruments Kontakt.
The idea behind this particular module was quite simple: to create a bass module that not only boasts some very distinct oscillators but also provides ‘layers’ to ..er…layer the primary oscillators with. These layers have been processed with comb filtering and some specific phase cancellation to provide acres of scope for layering sounds.
Married to this 7 oscillator facility comes a ton of warping and mauling tools. Ring, Scuzz, Chrome, Colour and so on, describe beautifully what the functions do and they came from a very disturbed place. And if that wasn’t enough, well, I threw in a detailed WOBBLE section for those of you that are into Dubstep. The rest is sheer saturation and distortion mayhem but in a clear kinda way…if you know what I ..er mean…
The Pulse library is available to purchase for $30 USD. Through June, 2012, a free bass module (LEWD or PULSE) is included with a purchase of the EPIC Series 1 bundle.

WOK tells us that BassPlus is an enhancer for low frequencies that is intended for drums, but works on other signals too. It’s not a fixed EQ, but has a detector for lower frequencies and enhances them and/or adds a new subtone.
Adjusting the amount of bass frequencies as well as the extra bass volume and frequency is quick and easy, the plugin can even be used in the end mix.
Unlimited, free version. Made with Synthedit 1.1 (no multicore bug).
