Big Beautiful Door-A Single Gateway That Grants Entrance Into a Musical Multiverse
Taking a unique, streamlined approach to dynamics processing and equalization, Big Beautiful Door enables you to process vocals, clean up noise, manage low end, gate drums, spice up pads, and more, in ways no other plug-in or combination of plug-ins can.
Big Beautiful Door Is What You Get When an EQ and a Gate Make a Baby Together. Then, Right When the Baby Comes Out, You Inject It With a Few Doses of Steroids.
Seriously, this thing is so powerful and is really easy to use. This is not a one trick pony. This does everything from ducking your bass when your kick hits, to acting as the world's most powerful vocal EQ. Big Beautiful Door opens up a whole new world of creativity and streamlines your workflow like no other dynamics plugin.
Big Beautiful Door gives you separate EQ over your loud and your quiet parts of your track. This lets you EQ your quiet sounds separately from your loud sounds. A paragraph of text won't come close to describing how powerful this option is, so watch some of the demo videos to see what opportunities this opens up.
Advanced sidechaining gives you complete control over how Big Beautiful Door reacts to your input. Do you need to EQ out the low end of your bass when your kick drum hits? This is how you do it. Or maybe you need to EQ out the midrange of your back track whenever your vocals come it. Big Beautiful Door makes this easy to do without automation.
Familiar envelope controls let you determine how quickly Big Beautiful Door will morph from one EQ setting to the other. Whether you need quick gating or smooth transitions, you can set it up easily.
Big Beautiful Door-Cracking the Code
Like all Boz Digital plug-ins, BBD is the result of trying to achieve real-world audio goals after attempts with existing plug-ins failed to produce the desired results. As such, Big Beautiful Door takes a novel approach to dynamics and EQ processing not found in any other plug-in. Neither a gate, compressor, or dynamic equalizer, it can act like all three. Plus, it has a few unexpected tricks up its sleeve. Its most unique feature is that you can EQ your opened and closed gate separately.
The BBD has a threshold slider that controls the level at which the gate opens and closes. To prevent gate chatter, there's a 3dB hysteresis set into the threshold. However, there's also a variable hysteresis control if you require additional control. (Hysteresis keeps the gate open below the threshold by the set amount.) There are also buttons that let you hide the EQ controls and display input-level history and the state of the envelope, which helps you dial in threshold and view how your sound is being affected.
Along with standard envelope controls, including attack, release, hold, and ratio, the gate has a look-ahead feature. Look-ahead lets you step through Big Beautiful Door into the future. It opens the gate before the level crosses the threshold, which enables it to pass transients unaffected. This feature comes in handy for gating drums. Using look-ahead in concert with a slow attack provides much smoother gating results.
Using its advanced side-chaining, which controls the way Big Beautiful Door reacts to the input signal, you can EQ out the low end of your bass when a kick drum hits or attenuate the midrange of backing tracks when the vocals come in-easily and without automation.
Big Beautiful Door lets you isolate consonants from vowels and EQ them separately, which makes it arguably the worlds most powerful vocal processor. For example, if you've ever spent an inordinate amount of time trying to tame sibilant buildup in background vocals, which can sound like a leaking steam vent, BBD can eliminate it across multiple tracks while maintaining a natural sound. Plus, you can boost the highs of background vocals to make them stand out in the mix without affecting sibilance.
Big Beautiful Door can also clean up noisy guitars and low end, remove drum bleed in the form of cymbals or singing toms, and add rhythmic and timbral interest to pads-and that's just for starters.
