Waves Audio has announced Waves Submarine, a two-octave subharmonic generator plugin powered by Organic ReSynthesis technology.

Waves Audio Submarine

The Submarine plugin aims to deliver deeper well-balanced results on any large sound system, so you can add bigger sub bass with unprecedented clarity and low-end accuracy.

Submarine’s two sub generators process your source—kicks, bass, even full, busy mixdowns—and cleanly add new subharmonic frequencies up to a full TWO octaves below the precise frequency range you’ve selected.

Submarine’s innovative Organic ReSynthesis engine strips the original signal down to its core elements—carrier, pitch, formant, and envelope— processes them individually, and then reconstructs the audio to create brand new sub frequencies which retain the exact pitch and time of the original signal. The result is deep subharmonic content that is clean, musical, and naturally blends with your source.

The plugin’s pinpoint-accurate RANGE slider lets you zero in on the exact frequencies from which you want to generate your sub sounds, anywhere between 20–240 Hz: Perfect for when you want to add subharmonics to a full mix, or to an old-school drum break sample—but only surgically to the kick, not to the snare or to other instruments.

Use the DRIVE control to saturate the added subs and easily glue them into the rest of the mix. Use the DYNAMICS knob to go from compressed short transient sounds to longer sustained sub notes.
