Metric Halo, maker of award-winning audio interfaces (such as the ULN-8), plug-ins
(such as ChannelStrip and Character), and SpectraFoo sound analysis software, has
announced the FREE release of Metric Halo Thump in AU, VST, and AAX formats for
both Mac and Windows.

Thump is a percussive subharmonic synth that gets triggered by the audio track that
it is inserted on, making it the perfect go-to plug-in for adding sub bass to kick
drums and percussion.

Like all Metric Halo products, Thump combines great sound with intuitive user
controls and presets so that users can make substantive improvements to their
mixes in just moments. Users can obtain their free copy of Thump from:

Thump uses the dynamics of its audio input to control two oscillators, each of which
has independent attack and sustain frequencies, dynamics amplitude followers, and
pitch amplitude followers. A wet/dry mix adjusts the output and a super useful
display makes it easy to set the controls to create the desired effect.

In addition to building low-octave support for bass drum, tom, snare, and other
percussive tracks, Thump makes it possible to create kettle drum sounds from
regular drum tracks and to recreate the sounds of classic drum synths like the TR-
808. Of course, Thump is also great for creating experimental effects that can be
subtle, menacing, or bizarre, especially in conjunction with automation.

As Russ Hughes from Pro Tools Expert said in his review of Thump, “There’s all
sorts of uses for this, and at the cost of absolutely free, it’s one of those handy
things to have in your arsenal… It’s great.’
