Voxengo has released version 2.0 of BMS, the Bass Management System plug-in for Windows and Mac.
BMS is able to extract and manipulate low-frequency content of non-LFE channels in up to 7.1 surround configurations. The main purpose of BMS is to simplify evaluation of low-frequency content present in non-LFE channels during mastering. At the same time, it is possible to mix extracted low-frequency content to the LFE (“Low Frequency Effects”) channel. An option to remove the extracted signal from non-LFE channels is also available. In BMS you can specify a desired frequency of the crossover filter, and adjust its steepness.
Changes in BMS v2.0
- The “Mute LFE Highs” switch added.
- The “Bypass” management mode added.
- Crossovers are minimum-phase now.
- Maximal crossover steepness is -72 dB/oct now.
- Zero processing latency.
- Multi-platform support.
