Dive into deep bass

SSL SubGen Plug-in is a sophisticated, high-quality sub bass harmonic synthesizer that takes bass and LFE material to places no EQ can...

Developed around a natural-sounding bass synthesis algorithm, which utilises wave inversion to generate a bipolar waveform an octave lower than the source material, SubGen can quickly and easily give you huge, natural sounding bass, with control and refinement to sit perfectly in your mix.

Whether you’re a musician looking to easily rebuild bass frequencies in thin-sounding guitars or drums, or post-production engineer wanting to generate LFE content for a film mix or sound design project, SubGen’s unique 4 band design, combined with renowned SSL ‘DRIVE’ and ‘COMPRESS’ features offer the ultimate in bass generation and control.

Multi-band harmonic synthesizer

4 independently configurable bands with frequency read out, width control and LED metering give you total control and insight to tell exactly how much low frequency / sub content is being generated.

Interactive graph

Know exactly how source material and each band of synthesized material are interacting. Quickly configure band gain, centre frequency and width in a visual way.   

Saturate and DRIVE

Gain compensated DRIVE control to add tone and character. Add presence to source material without eating up headroom in your mix.

Three types of tailored saturation 

Bass - add bite to your bass with strong harmonics for that 70s style drive
Kick - add lighter harmonics and subtle overtones for that 60/70s kick distortion
Pre - ideal for sources other than bass and kick to add that 50s valve-style overdrive

SSL compressor glue 

With newly designed attack/release times and smooth knee, SUBGEN’s built in compressor provides the perfect glue to combine synthesised and source material.

Instant parallel processing

Quickly blend wet and dry signals, as well as dial in punch via parallel compression.

Frequency analyser and filtering 

Quickly understand any frequency problems with source material via the analyser and filter out unwanted high and low content with musical 12dB per/octave filters.
