Description

BaB Drive M4B

The M4B adds warmth and pleasing harmonics to a drum, vocal synth, bass or guitar part ‘soul’ in the mix. The plugin sports unique M/S processing, letting the saturation apply either in stereo or to the mid or sides separately. The M4B also gives you flexible control over the crossover frequencies.

Light it up

Audio saturation plays a significant role in music production. Applying saturation to single tracks, groups, and the master channel will improve your mix. Even more, it adds that desired analog character.

Saturation is a subtle form of distortion that adds pleasant-sounding harmonics. The effect originates from the analog days when audio recordings ran through various pieces of hardware. Mix engineers discovered they could overload magnetic tape machines, tube amps, and transistor-based preamps to create a type of “soft-clipping.” This technique gave recordings sought-after qualities that sounded pleasing.

The M4B emulates the sound of audio recorded through tape machines. The plugin introduces odd order harmonics, subtle compression, and non-linear shifts in frequency response. The M4B also rolls off high-end frequencies and creates a small boost in the lows. Moreover, it rounds off transient peaks, creating a form of compression that smooths out the signal.

The M4B is sounding musical, warm, punchy and It also adds dimension, fatness and depth to your mix.

  • Adjust the volume of the harmony 
  • Add saturation in different frequency bands
  • Generate and create harmonics
  • Musical, warm, punchy 
  • Fatness and depth 
  • Unique M/S processing
  • Per channel Solo, Mute, Internal SC control

I've played with this on a few drum loops, bass parts, vocal groups, pretty much anything and it is fantastic. I've never come across anything quite like it before, but this is going to be my go to plug-in for a LONG time!

This is a beautiful plugin! Very smooth. Four bands with mid/side makes it extremely versatile. It just sounds great.

Utilisation sur Windows 10 avec Studio one 5.2 (pas encore essayé sur pro tools) Ce plugin vient juste de sortir, j'ai même eu le privilège de l'essayer en beta. Très simple à prendre en main, j'ai quand même indiqué pour utilisateur averti car il nécessite de comprendre ce qui se passe derrière, néanmoins, un enfant peut le manipuler: il y a juste ce qu'il faut de faders et boutons. On peut aller à l'essentiel avec ce plugin, comme avec tous les babelson que j'ai pour le moment, ça permet d'aller vite pour éviter de charger 36 effets et travailler là où ça le nécessite. Ici on découpe le spectre en 4 bandes, dont les fréquences de coupures sont ajustables. A partir de là, c'est de la sculpture: saturation progressive de chaque bande avec un algo propre au developpeur, compression de chacune de ces bandes, volume, solo sur chacune pour bien écouter ce que l'on fait, mute pour faire le contraire, et side chain pour exclure la bande concernée de la compression du bus principal (si j'ai bien compris, j'ai pas essayé encore le SC). De même, le bus principal est traité comme les bandes, mais en M/S cette fois, avec les mêmes options (saturation, compression, volume et SC pour le MID ET pour le Side.) Bref, à partir de là, c'est open bar: j'y ai testé basse, snare, room, guitare elec, c'est excellent pour tout ce qui parait manquer d'un ptit quelque chose ou qui semble avoir un petit quelque chose en trop dans le mix. J'avais adoré le précédent Bab drive, encore plus simplissime (2 boutons), notamment sur les snare et bass, et je pense qu'il vient avec son grand frère: que demande le peuple!

J’utilise ce plug sur Protools 2021.3.1 avec un Mac Pro 6.1 Aucun problème de stabilité , interface graphique terrible. Et le son… c’est simple: vous faites ce que vous voulez. Il sature, compresse, enrichi votre son, et ce sur 4 bandes, avec la gestion MS en prime. Juste impossible de passer à coté. Ça permet de tout faire et sur n’importe quoi, du violon solo à la grosse basse fuzz. Sur un master bus il permet de finaliser la couleur de votre mix. Et sur les mixbusses… la batterie si ne carrement plus grosse, plus présente, et vous sortirez les transitoires de façon tellement plus évidente… Bref un must have!
