Audio software and interface company Metric Halo has announced the free release of Metric Halo Thump in AU, VST, and AAX formats for both Mac and Windows.
Thump is a percussive subharmonic synth that gets triggered by the audio track that it is inserted on, making it the perfect go-to plug-in for adding sub bass to kick drums and percussion.
Thump also has intuitive user controls and presets so that users can make substantive improvements to their mixes in just moments.
Thump uses the dynamics of its audio input to control two oscillators, each of which has independent attack and sustain frequencies, dynamics amplitude followers, and pitch amplitude followers. A wet/dry mix adjusts the output and a useful display makes it easy to set the controls to create the desired effect.
In addition to building low-octave support for bass drum, tom, snare, and other percussive tracks, Thump makes it possible to create kettle drum sounds from regular drum tracks and to recreate the sounds of classic drum synths like the TR-808. Of course, the plug-in is also great for creating weird and wonderful experimental effects.
