If you´re looking for maximum sonic impact with a minimum number of controls, just select the ´Easy Page´ option. Once selected, you will be presented with carefully selected controls which change the sound dramatically. This is particularly useful in a live enviroment when you have a MIDI controller assigned.


SubBoomBass 2 uses up to 2 oscillators per voice, you don´t need to use them both but each has it´s own settings with OSC 2 having additional modulation options.


For the first time, SubBoomBass includes a physical string model to help create string-based sounds which includes everything from plucky guitar timbres to metallic hits.

The model uses a version of the Karplus-Strong model to create sounds starting with a short burst of sound known as the impulse. The primary String controls are available from the Oscillator section with more advanced once available from the dedicated String tab.


The SubBoomBass 2 XY Pad is a combination of a live, interactive control and an automated programmable modulation source. You can use your mouse to control up to 6 parameters simultaneously by moving the dot around the pad. You can also record these movement as paths and make the XY Pad a programmable two-dimension LFO.

"SubBoomBass is the most incredible vst instrument that feature lots of Bass sounds with sub bottom that have lots of Boom. You will hear The SUB-response below 40hz, BOOM-rumbling the floor, BASS-sounds that are so warm, it will excite you to make track all day everyday. SubBoomBass is HOT!!!!" - Teddy Riley (Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Doug E. Fresh and Usher)

"I´ve loved the subboombass from the start! Instant access over lot´s of great sounding deep bases that immediately sit nice in the mix!! A must have for every dance-producer!!" - Junkie XL
