Countless albums and CD’s owe part of their success to the Aphex Aural Exciter It’s been a “secret weapon” of top producers and artists for over 24 years. This patented process adds transient discriminate harmonic details to the sound - without turning it into distortion. If you want distortion, then use any distortion effect you like. The Aural Exciter will still add something good. No other so-called “exciter” or “maximizer” even comes close to the genuine Aphex Aural Exciter. You’re going to hear that for yourself.
Not a sub-synth, or static boost, Big Bottom is a smart system that adapts and improves what’s already there. Speakers gain an extension of their low end, yet amplifiers and speakers are not overloaded. You get better sustain, but still get all the transient punch. Beyond bass, however, Big Bottom adds warmth and roundness to any instrument. “Optical Big Bottom” is the latest technology advancement using an optical compression device for smoother and punchier control.
