Wink BBE's Magic Biggest Secret Finally Revealed......LOL

There are a lot of "guessing guys" all over the net, they keep guessing about stuff they
don't have any info, when they guess something it becomes a fact, yeah I know crazy people lol.
They say BBE brings a muddy mix to life by adding bass and treble..............WRONG.
To add bass and treble you just need an equalizer
As you can see in this picture it does a little physics trick, it cheats on low frequencies
which are bigger than high frequencies, smaller high frequencies are smashed by huge low frequencies but BBE just holds low frequencies a little beat
letting high frequencies get to to the speakers in the same time.
Picture a skinny guy trying to win a maraton but a fat guy doesn't allow him to pass, BBE tells to the fat guy..................get out of the way!
Simple but amazing.




Here's a sample made by "fearcomplexmusic"(his nick) =

1- Original sample = http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=10647005

Here's the same sample but with BBE holding that fat guy(lol).
Notice how it's breathing, it's like BBE removed a tampax from our ears!

2- Sample + BBE = http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=10647007

You can use BBE in separate instruments or in the whole mix, it depends on what you need/want.




Anyway if you never heard about this little amazing gizmo or heard about it by those "guessing guys", now you know what it really does and you can see why all studios have at least one

It hasn't been secret for a while. It was reverse engineered a bit ago and is available as a DIY kit.

Another great, and similar, piece of gear is the Aphex Aural Exciter. Another wonderful hunk of gear to slap in the mix...

I have rack units and plugins.
Plugins sound the same, if not human ears can't tell the difference.

You're welcome.
Yep the difference is huge but still natural and I used very subtle settings.
Believe me everybody who works with audio, from a bedroom player to a multi millionaire studio should have it(well studios do).
You could use plugins, they sound the same

...my BBE 462 arrived today, but I haven't had a chance to fiddle with it yet. I'll add it to my "Reviews To Do" list.

I use one of these on the loop of my JCM900 and I canīt play without it turned on! Anyways I think better amps (bogner, vht, carvin, mesa... ) donīt need it.

I bet you're an awesome engineer.
Dude that was one of the dumbest posts I saw.
Everything in life is about personal tastes so what is good to one is crap to the other so saying all engineers who don't like BBE are serious is...............NONSENSE.
LOL

Seriously what the hell is happening to guitar forums?
The dumbest and closed minds comments are in them.
It must be something in the strings LOL
I'll move to keyboard forums, people are clever there, at least they do read manuals hahahaha
