dbx 120A Subharmonic Synthesizer

No longer available at zZounds
Get in-your-face bass with the dbx 120A subharmonic synth. Its modeled waveform synthesis produces pounding bass an octave lower than the original audio.

Why just rock the house when you can rattle the foundation loose! For decades, the patented dbx Subharmonic Synthesis has been the secret weapon used by mobile DJs and film & sound professionals to produce amazing impact. The dbx process actually produces a Waveform Modeled bass note, exactly an octave below the bass in the original audio. Its two separate bands of bass synthesis provide the best combination of smoothness and control. Low Frequency Boost helps you get the most out of high-performance low frequency speaker systems. Flexible I/O includes 1/4 in. and RCA inputs, main outputs which can be full range (including synthesis) or high frequency only, and a separate subwoofer out with its own level control.

Just used this for the first time at a gig last week and all I have to say is WOW! I've never had my subwoofers hit so hard. I'm a DJ playing a wide variety of music, from beach and shag to electronic and hip hop, and the processor worked great after following the manufacturer's detailed instructions. It's not trivial in its setup but the effect you get is worth the extra 5 min of tuning.

Musical Background:

DJ for 8 years

Musical Style:

Hip hop, electronic, beach, shag, country, rock, Motown, etc.
