FathomFive is a new free effect plugin by Airwindows that allows you to enhance the bass in your sound by using an algorithm that acts like a combination between an EQ and a bass amp.

The idea is this: rather than blur and damage your sound by running through lots of ‘fake analog’ effects on your buss to impart deepness and analog-like tone, use the Airwindows plugins Console4 and FathomFive to get a big-sounding mix while letting most mix elements through with minimal processing.

You can run the ‘bass bloom’ behavior on an aux, and feed it with only the elements you want, and then integrate it into the sound with Console4 which both works the way Console wants to be used, and addresses limitations that Console has when used all by itself.

FathomFive is free for Windows and Mac (VST/AU). If you like the plugin, you can support Chris’ work by becoming a patron.
