Waves Audio Debuts Submarine Subharmonic Generator Plugin

New two-octave subharmonic generator plugin utilizes Organic ReSynthesis engine to strip the original signal down to its core elements

Interface for Waves Submarine plugin

Waves Audio introduces Waves Submarine, a two-octave subharmonic generator plugin.

Sub frequencies are the backbone of modern music production. Submarine adds bigger, deeper sub bass to tracks, with clarity and low-end accuracy. Powered by Waves’ Organic ReSynthesis technology, Submarine’s two subharmonic generators deliver well-balanced subsonic results on any large sound system.

Submarine’s two sub generators process kicks, bass, even full busy mixdowns – and cleanly add new subharmonic frequencies up to a full two octaves below the precise frequency range selected. The plugin’s 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 pitch and time of the original signal.

The result is deep subharmonic content that is clean and musical and naturally blends with sources. The plugin’s Range slider lets users zero in on the exact frequencies from to generate sub sounds, anywhere between 20–240 Hz.

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 short transient sub sounds, to heavier compression for longer sustained sub notes.

Submarine features:
— Subharmonic generation plugin powered by Organic ReSynthesis technology
— Two subharmonic generators (Sub -1 and Sub -2)
— Frequency range slider (20–240 Hz) to target precise frequencies
