Aphex in Burbank, Calif., launches the mono EX-BB 500 module, which introduces the company’s Aural Exciter and Big Bottom patented audio enhancement technologies to the 500 Series format.

Aphex’s Aural Exciter technology has been used in recording studios, broadcast facilities, concert arenas, musicians’ equipment racks, DJ systems, houses of worship, auditoriums, theaters and sports venues worldwide since 1975 to enhance detail, clarity and imaging to a wide variety of sources. The new EX-BB 500 module offers discrete Tune, Harmonics and Mix controls that enable users to increase intelligibility to vocals, add punch and presence to individual instruments, and add detail and airiness to mixes.

Optical Big Bottom processing is said to extend low frequency power and spectrum, to provide a richer and more percussive sound, including at low volume levels, while avoiding the level build-up associated with traditional equalization. The module includes Tune, Drive and Mix controls, allowing the user to dial-in just the right “thickness” and dynamically enhance the low frequency range.

The 500 Series form factor of the EX-BB 500 module enables users to configure a system incorporating as many or as few channels of Aphex’s Aural Exciter and Big Bottom processing as required or as a budget allows. Aphex states that the EX-BB 500 module fits all current 500 Series racks, including those from A Designs, API, Empirical Labs, Radial and Tonelux.
