Crysonic - newB

This looks interesting.

From the homepage:
Based on ' Aural Acoustic ' principals newB is a bass enhancer and maximizer VST plug-in that can be used to apply from subtle to extreme bass enhancement and generation during Mastering, Mixing, Tracking and Live performance. newB increases the perceived amount of bass by adding / mixing specific sub-harmonic content from the original bass, thereby allowing our brains to hear lower-frequencies than may exist in the original audio material. The newB process conceptually enhances the bass performance of high and low quality consumer speaker systems ranging from Hi-fi to multimedia speakers found in products such as laptops.

Such software can host newB™ plugin and it will behave like a DirectX plugin to applications that only support DX audio plugins.

newB™ has been tested to be stable and working in the following VST plugin hosts:

Due to the vast number of hosts available it is beyond our scope to test them all for compatibility, however we have done extensive testing with some of the most popular hosts in use today.
