Voxengo BMS 2.0 bass management system plugin released - Press Release
Aug 2, 2011: Voxengo is pleased to announce the release of BMS version 2.0 bass management system plugin for professional surround sound applications, available in AudioUnit and VST plugin formats, for Mac OS X (v.10.4.11 and later) and Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) computers.
BMS is able to extract and manipulate low-frequency content of non-LFE channels in up to 7.1 surround configurations.
The main purpose of BMS is to simplify evaluation of low-frequency content present in non-LFE channels during mastering. At the same time, it is possible to mix extracted low-frequency content to the LFE (“Low Frequency Effects”) channel. An option to remove the extracted signal from non-LFE channels is also available.
In BMS you can specify a desired frequency of the crossover filter, and adjust its steepness.
The following features were added to BMS since version 1:
- The "Mute LFE Highs" switch added
- The "Bypass" management mode added
- Crossovers are minimum-phase now
- Maximal crossover steepness is -72 dB/oct now
- Zero processing latency
- Multi-platform support
- Preset manager
- User interface coloration
- User interface re-scaling
- Plug-in instance naming
- Bypass switch
Voxengo BMS end-user license is available for purchase on-line for USD 49.95 (note that if you order in August, 2011 you will receive 10% discount). Upgrading from the previous version costs USD 19.95 if the previous version was purchased earlier than 90 days from now; otherwise the upgrade is free during this grace period.
