Punch Up Your Kick Drum Tracks!

We've seen more than our share of overly complex virtual processors here at Sweetwater, which is why we find the extreme simplicity of the Brainworx bx_boom! plug-in so refreshing. Two controls is all it takes to punch up any kick drum track. Here's how it works: bx_boom! listens to your kick track and responds automatically to your drum track. As you turn the dial, bx_boom!'s threshold drops, responding more readily to incoming transients. The dial itself also flashes to indicate each detected note, taking the guesswork out of the process.

Punch it up or rein it in

The cool thing about this dial is that you can not only turn it up to boost your transients, you can also turn it down to a negative value to attenuate your sound as well. That makes bx_boom! a great way to tame runaway resonance and overly boomy bass. And the control that looks like a beater is actually a 3-mode frequency switch, so you can to fine tune which frequency range bx_boom! will boost or cut. Whether you want to emphasize the beater click of your rock kit or add some chest-crushing thump to an off-the-shelf drum loop, Brainworx bx_boom! is the plug-in you need.

Bx Boom Review

This plugin is very simple and does what it says it does. I like to use it on my drum mix buss. Usually I mix the kick separate along with each kit piece then sub into a drum buss. That works for me, but what I really like about this plugin is that it appears to center the kick and give it addition thump if needed while auditioning the sub drum mix easily. I use it more for a fine tune of the kick and is perfect for the way I mix.
