Like a supercharged (though working along different principles) sustain-cut control of a transient designer. When you find that the ringing-on aspect of a kick drum is fighting with a bass guitar, here’s your answer.
Awesome idea for a plugin and does the job of getting rid of annoying boominess very quickly and efficiently
Expensive. I was surprised that it was not included as part of the expensive Eventide bundle I purchased.
I dont need this, as i have split eq, but if you are looking for something quick and easy to de-mud your mixes, or individual tracks etc, this is it. It sounds really good. very transparent. Its different than soothe and other spectral processors, as it splits transients and tonal quality. Its basically just removing tonal quality in the low mids range.
The NEW Approach to Resolving Common Low Frequency Problems
DeBoom is a purpose-driven tool for surgically addressing common low frequency equalization problems. Kick drums, bass, and similar sound sources can contribute to low frequency "muddiness." Traditional EQs 'solve' the problem but cause collateral damage - the drum's thump goes out with the boom. The bass attack gets tossed with its resonance. DeBoom solves this problem by using Eventide's patented Structural Split technology to EQ the tonal portion of the sound separately from the transient. Power users have been doing exactly this using the full-featured SplitEQ plugin. We’ve put the power of SplitEQ in DeBoom and reduced it to a single, powerful, one knob gesture.
DeBoom – Applications
DeBoom quickly and easily removes low-frequency muddiness without sacrificing impact. It's a powerful, yet simple, tool for repairing audio that otherwise require extensive, clumsy traditional tools.
DeBoom surgically "shapes" low frequencies without causing collateral damage.
DeBoom can be used to tighten up the low frequencies to better refine their balance.
DeBoom – Features
The beating heart of DeBoom is the same groundbreaking technology found in SplitEQ and Physion. Whatever instrument you process, DeBoom analyzes the incoming audio and separates these components into their respective Transient (noise, pops, mic plosives, vocal sibilance, attacks) and Tonal (sustained notes, harmonics, tone, ambiance) elements. DeBoom uses this information to apply specially crafted EQ curves to the tonal layer of the incoming audio, removing boom and reshaping sounds instantly.
Just One Knob
A straightforward user interface focused specifically on what matters: De-booming without de-thuding. Turn the dial, lose the mud and keep the thud. DeBoom's user interface also includes undo/redo, input gain and built-in bypass.
