The LFE Bass Management Synthesizer (LFE-S) is a DSP based synthesizer created in Creamware Scope environment.
LFE-S is MIDI and can be played using any master keyboard like any other MIDI expander. By the way, itís purpouse is very different from a music MIDI synthesizer.
The Synth Bass Management Synthesis (SBMS) has been created in order to feed very low frequencies on sub-woofer systems for Dolby Surround and 5.1 or 7.1 applications
to the hi low freq pressure generated by LFE-S, serious damage to studio monitor
speakers may be caused at SPL>79 Db SPL.
The LFE-S uses developed psychoacoustic algorithms that combine FM technology, shaping and modulation synthesis, Helmotz and Tartini 3rd sound researches, additive synthesis and others.
Itís complexity allows the re-creation of harmonics that emulate motion of pressure far below the 20 Hz. This is possible using upper harmonics combined in resonant synthesis, in this way you can cause a resonation on the walls and floor thus creating a deep emotional effect in the listeners.
Suited for surround production LFE-S is particulary efficient in simulating
earthwakes, tremors, deep explosions etc. in cinema productions.
