Encanti created SUBPAC Optimized Ableton Operator and Wavetable Bass racks that are great for EDM, Dubstep, Trap, and sound design. He’s an in-demand sound designer that has worked with well-known music software manufactures and is an Assistant Professor of Music Production, Technology, and Innovation at Berklee School of Music.
“SUBPAC helps me seek and destroy standing waves and other low-end artifacts in my mix. I like my bass punchy and smooth, but I also love using a ton of weird sounds. Even in well treated studios, it’s hard to hear anything below 30 hz; SUBPAC preserves the clarity of my music all the way down to the inaudible range, making it one of the most essential tools in my studio.”
