From Our Research Team:
Flawlessly Increase Your Loudness and ClarityFor years, professional audio engineers and producers have relied on Aphex's Aural Exciter to brighten up sound dulled by lo-fi equipment or a difficult A/D transfer. Now, with the Exciter, Aphex has brought back the Aural Exciter in an enhanced, two-channel version - and thrown in the Optical Big Bottom for extra measure! The Exciter dramatically enhances the presence and clarity of your audio signals. On the high end, the Aural Exciter restores natural brightness and improves sonic detail. The Big Bottom performs a similar function on the low end, providing deeper, more resonant bass with little or no increase in peak output.
The Aural Exciter is more than just another "audio enhancer;" it actually extends your high frequencies for a greater perceived loudness without an introduction of noise into the audio path due to increased gain. Vocals and instruments leap out without raising individual volumes in the mix.
The same can be said for the Optical Big Bottom capabilities of the Exciter, except on the opposite end of the sonic spectrum. Big Bottom tightens and boosts the bass, allowing individual notes to be more articulated and recognizable, providing a deeper, more resonant bass without overloading the sound system.
With the Exciter in your setup, your audio will be fuller, bigger, and generally sound louder, but with little or no increase in peak volume. This is a versatile tool for a huge range of applications, from recording to broadcast to performance.

I totally agree with the other review. I use the Presonus monitor channel and some jbl's in my home/project studio and the ... read more [+]sound was sweet.
Punch and presence. No need for eq.
My sales engineer put one aside for me as soon as it became available and shipped it out the day it arrived.
Add one to your recording rig and feel/hear the difference.

Exactly as advertised
by Ryan from Indianapolis, INI'm the audio tech for a church with no budget and ancient main speakers. I purchased the Aphex exciter for my own rig & brought it in to test out; I got it patched to the Main Inserts (pre-graphicEQ... read more [+]), got everything dialed in, then turned off the processor for a basic A/B test... and the change was pretty dramatic. It gave the low end a lot more "bang for the buck"...which is to say I got a lot more punch without cranking the low eq on the bass or kick. The vocals were more intelligable, and the pastor's voice sounded a lot more natural & fuller. Afterwards I also noticed that my main fader was about 3dB lower than what I normally run. I'll be installing it in my touring rack post haste. close [-]
