DBX 510 Subharmonic Synthesizer - 500 Series


The DBX 510 Subharmonic Synthesiser is a circuit-for-circuit rebuild of the 120A Subharmonic Synth. It has two subharmonic frequency bands, and LED metering on board too. The DBX 510 works by synthesising a waveform exactly one octave lower than the sound source it is receiving. The 510 will add warmth and punch to your low frequency sound sources, and the DBX 120A was used as much in rock and pop music as it was for electronic music and sound design. The 510 model fits conveniently into a single rack slot space in any compatible 500 format rack unit.


      For decades, dbx’s patented Subharmonic Synthesis has rattled foundations enhancing the bass in a variety of professional applications including nightclub and DJ mixing, theatre and film sound, music recording, live music performance and broadcasting. dbx’s Subharmonic Synthesis process actually produces a new, Waveform Modeled bass note, exactly an octave below the bass in the original audio.

      The dbx 510 answers the call of audio professionals everywhere delivering Subharmonic Synthesis in the convenient design of a 500 Series module. The 510’s two separate bands of subharmonic synthesis provide the best combination of smoothness and control, while the independent Low Frequency Boost circuit is designed to get the most out of high-performance, low frequency speaker systems. Unlike other attempts at bass synthesis, the dbx process produces musical low frequencies that don’t interfere with mid and high-band information, even when the maximum synthesis and boost are applied. The result is a low-end punch that people really feel!
