Overview

Precision Enhancer Hz Plug-In

A Specialized Tool for Enhancing Bass Perception

The Precision Enhancer Hz allows the user to selectively add upper harmonics to bass fundamentals, sometimes referred to as “phantom bass”. This significantly enhances the perception of low-end energy beyond the conventional frequency response of small speakers. These harmonics stimulate a psychoacoustic bass-enhancing effect in the listener, giving even the smallest speakers greater translation of low frequency sources. Universal Audio’s unique approach to this common problem combines a simple control set that yields exacting results with minimal adjustment and allows the widest range of tonality available in its class, from subtle to decidedly audible.

The Hz Frequency control sets the corner frequency of the bass-isolation low pass filter, while Effect blends the generated signal into original signal. Four effect slopes are available for variations in harmonic density, while five Modes present various internal control configurations to support the widest array of source material. Finally, the Precision Enhancer Hz includes control over the final Output with metering to compensate for gain changes created by the effect.

The five Modes (A, B, C, D and “All”) present various control configurations to support the widest array of source material. Modes A and B specialize in natural sources such as electric or acoustic bass. Mode C is tailored to bass-rich synthesizer patches. Mode D is specially tuned for kick drums. Lastly, “All” brings a more exaggerated and audible effect for creative uses.

    "[The Precision Enhancer Hz] is another one of those voodoo boxes that will get used often."

  • Ryan West

    (Kid Cudi,T-Pain)

    "I used [the Precision Enhancer Hz] on a wimpy bass sound. Just a little fiddling with it and I got a great tone."

    DJ Rap

    "It's all about the low end and the Precision Enhancer Hz brings clarity to sine waves that usually gets lost unless you're sitting on the sub."

    Not for me
    by J. Gil (Thursday 24 January, 2013)

    It probably works in electronic music, but for subtle electric bass enhacement I'd rather use other plugins. It's very difficult to set so that it doesn't change the sound in an unpleasant way. I love the Enhancer KHz, btw. … Read More
