Developer Iceberg Audio promises a quick and easy antidote to your mix’s sub-par sub frequencies. Aptly titled The Sub, this new virtual instrument combines everything you need to get a basic sub bass going into a sleek and intuitive user interface.


Iceberg Audio The Sub

Iceberg Audio’s The Sub begins with an oscillator module that’s followed by an ADSR envelope and a pair of controls – Drive and Glide. An Extra Attack button gives the sub more perceived ‘punch’. Each of the included presets has a custom-designed Extra Attack profile. Internally, a pitch-independent attack overlay helps the notes cut through. The presets are found immediately above the oscillator. And that’s pretty much all there is to the plug-in. In the developer’s words, “less is more”!

Convenient and quick

I can easily see The Sub making its way into bass-heavy genres like trap, hip-hop and hard dance music. It’s just so convenient and quick, doing its job with minimum effort. Let’s hope the developer can come up with more plug-ins in the same style. There’s clear potential for The Sub’s concept to translate into other types of plug-ins, such as synthesizers, multi-effects, saturation, and much more. As much as I enjoy having options, sometimes all one needs is a simple and immediate solution. Tweaking to no end can get a little tiring after a while, and this is where one-knob (or two in this case) wonders like The Sub come in guns-blazing.
