Is this just a resonant high pass filter?

Yes, it is.

Why create a dedicated plugin for a tool we all already have?

Great question. Truthfully, what you get here can be accomplished with pretty much any digital EQ plugin. The reason why I made a dedicated plugin for this is because even though I had the capability to put a resonant high pass filter on my tracks for the past 15 years using my stock EQ, the thought never occurred to me to try it. I read reviews on a certain plugin that claimed to enhance the low end with a resonant high pass filter, and everybody who tried it seemed to love it. Rather than spending loads of money on a big dongle and then more money on a plugin, I decided just to make my own.

Even though it is super simple, I think it lived up to it’s hype. I love this tool. It solved all my low end problems. Because this is a feature we all already have, I didn’t feel right about charging money for it. There are enough good new ideas to do that I don’t want to fall into the trap of repackaging old tricks. Think of this as more of a really helpful tip with a plugin to go along with it. If you don’t want to download this plugin, then at least open up your stock EQ and play with the resonance on your high pass filter. It made my life a lot easier, and I think it can make yours easier too.

    The description of this plugin as “… a way to boost the low end while still keeping it under control” is exactly how this plugin works. But the description sells itself very short as to the it’s incredible usefulness with it’s simplistic elegance and it’s smooth yet tight character. I tried it initially simply as a matter of curiosity. Now I have this plugin on almost every channel be it for the Mix or the Master. For Sound Designers this is one of the most valuable plugins I’ve had the pleasure of using. It works astonishingly well to redefine the low end almost like an exciter for sound effects to either re-characterize the sound completely or to tweak them to better work in conjunction with other sounds. It also works as astonishingly well as a bass equalizer for orchestral music with it’s ability to remove low end rumble while simultaneously enhancing the bass with a sense of pleasing natural acoustic warmth. Quite frankly this plugin has no right to be free. I hope this review can do you a small amount of the justice this plugin has done for me. I am indebted to you.

    Loving the plug-in, but it stopped working when I upgraded my Pro Tools machine to Yosemite, so dropped back to Mavericks. Any word on Yosemite support yet?

    I use FL studio 12 (64 bit), and I installed Bark of Dog to my VST folder, but it doesn’t show up among my plugins, even after a deep scan and a plugin refresh. I’m looking forward to trying it out. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    ohelloron – I have the same issue – have downloaded all the files into my VST folder and Ableton can’t see them. I don’t know why they insist on having Installation files, why not just download the individual dlls???

    Amazing plugin, very helpful!

    I think in the tutorial video, he reverses the with more amplitude and with less amplitude descriptions while the EQ graphs are shown on screen. He describes it at around 4:00 min on the video counter. ? Or I’m wrong and it just seems backwards in my head, that can happen once in awhile.

    Such an easy to use plugin. While everything Bark of a Dog does can be done in any EQ, this provides an easy to use and nice looking interface. For low-end in particular, it’s nice to have some big red bars showing output levels and the big red bars in this plugin make adding and taming low end easy. I use this all the time and for the low price of free, I would recommend it to anyone.
