Bark of Dog

When Bark of Dog was just a puppy, it was bred to be a studio-quality, resonant high-pass filter and rapidly became mixer’s best friend and a staple in studios the world over. Like all gear that becomes classics, along with a simple, intuitive interface, Bark of Dog 2 makes it easy to get great results in both low-frequency cleanup and bass boost. Bark of Dog 2 operates in stereo or Mid-Side, enabling you to choose between Stereo, Mid only, or Side only processing. It also offers a continuously variable center frequency knob and A/B comparison mode that automatically saves settings into the selected bank. Bark of Dog 2 not only incorporates the resonant filter mode (Classic) of its sire, it adds a Pultec-like boost-attenuation mode (Passive), plus a Combo mode that combines Classic and Passive modes, giving you more options to clean and tighten your low end, as well as add body to instruments and vocals. Plus, you can instantly switch between them to see which works best. Get used to calling your stereo bus “the dog house,” because once you hear Bark of Dog 2 in action, it’s going to live there—and now you can get version 2, the big dog, for FREE. Prepare to be amazed.

    Hello every1,
    I’m just posting this review because it’s sad that people rate less than 5 stars because they have installation related problems (probably they own fault).
    This is just LIT, super useful plugin, 5 stars all the way.

  2. Raza Arshad

    Incredible freebie and a total secret weapon. Do not leave home (or mix bass) without it. Stick it on any and all channels with low/mids and sweep accordingly. Instant clarity. Low-cut filters give you calorie deficient results. This would be a bargain at any price. At $0, it’s just insane and a testament to Boz’s generosity, not to mention genius. Just, wow.

  8. Zliwilz


    I’ve a problem with the installation. I can’t find Bark of Dog 2 in my vst plugin DAW’s folder in ableton 10. But i can find The legacy version (Bark of Dog) and the Panipulator plugin. I dont know what to do.

  9. kevinsparks

    I finally figured out how to use this thing properly, and I like it.

  10. BassModeT

    This Plugin is my Go-To. Extremely amazing on Low End 808s!

  11. F1Filter

    Fantastic plugin for all your low end needs. RTFM!!! Great tip on page 5.

  12. tonedef

    Running latest OSX 10.14.1 and neither Bark of Dog or Panipulator can be found/used in Logic X or Ableton – they won’t even appear in any plugin scans. I can’t find any sort of system requirements on website or user manuals. Sadface. Hoping to update review positively following assistance and trial of products.

      Did you look at the support page? This is answered in the FAQ. Just reboot your machine and it will be there.

  13. Digivolt

    Really fantastic freebie from Boz!

  14. soly29

    This is exactly what I was looking for! My bass line and electronic kick have at least the loudness and sound I expected.
    Thanks to Boz Labs!

  15. Nejati

    This thing is perfect for Synths and Basses. Awesome for Kicks and Snares. However, my favorite use for it is on vocals. Especially, when working with a lower tone vocalist. The way it blends the low end of the vocals with the rest of the mix sounds like magic.

  16. juanestbanz

    y cannot run the Bark of Dog…..I need a serial number, can you help me please

  17. sound

    Inspiration! Hearing a great song makes me want to play, and working with a great plugin makes me want to mix. I just lost two hours of my life with this thing, and it’s great! Thanks!

  18. greenroom

    This is great, and many thank you’s for keeping BofD v1 available and in tact — much respect!!! Zero hiccup to workflow.

  19. losrack

    Amazing on synth stuff, kicks, bass.

    I used to spend a lot of time tweaking bass frequencies and fighting the muddiness and low energy cuts. Now is a lot of pleasure to perform this task in a very short time.

  20. Rob Stratford

    Bark of Dog 2 is a peach. Throw it on a snare track with a boost between 160 and 200Hz. Adds all the ‘Whap’ you need, with no need to mess around with additional resonant filters or passive EQ’s. I really dig the first version, but the new modes make it super versatile for any situation. Thanks a million Boz! ARF!

  21. hayskeys

    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.

  22. keithrob27

    Dude!! Great Plugin!! 100 % Useful!!!!

  23. Kenneth W Bateman

    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. Or I’m wrong and it just seems backwards in my head. Great plug in simple and effective , better and more convenient than others I have so I’ll use it a lot

  24. Kenneth W Bateman

    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.

  25. Scalone

    Amazing plugin, very helpful!

  26. Whtrz

    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???

  27. phillysoulman


  28. boka

    fantastic!!! thanks to all…..

  29. ohelloron

    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.

  30. tom3

    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?

  35. pedrolima

    Awesome. I’m amazed with the simplicity and the easy use to shape a bass content.
    Thanks Boz team!

    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.
