Eplex7 DSP has announced the release of a new physical and digital modeling bassline synthesizer.

Designed for genres such as psycore, darkpsy/forest night psytrance, fullon, progressive, and techno, the Hitech Bass HBS1 synth uses advanced algorithms to create a unique type of bass which works well with fast hitech tracks without clicks and phasing problems.

Classic virtual analog synthesizers are usually not suitable for psytrance or hitech bass, because you need extremely fast and stable bass. While VA synths do not have stable sound, because they are designed to emulate analog synths and have musical tone. Analog and virtual analog synths are unstable changing its sound and parameters in time. They also produce clicks, cracks, phase issues, layering of sub-bass tail of bass, disharmony with kick drum bass tail etc. That is why we designed special synthesizer designed for psychedelic basslines.

HBS1 Algorithm consist of 2 parts: one is Bass generator – creating bass or sub-bass part of bassline by special technique and next is pick / transient generator to create percussive / transient mid and high frequency part of bassline.

This algorithm creates new approach to classic electronic bassline design. It creates new kind of bass, better than classic methods, like creating bass from saw wave in classic substractive VA synthesizer. It is especially important in fast bpm genres like hitech, psycore, fullon, darkpsy, techno, electro, progressive etc.

The plugin is available from Eplex DSP as a VST instrument for Windows, priced 18.90 EUR for the first 100 customers (regular 37 EUR).
