MaxxBass (Native) from Waves is a plug-in for enhancing the perceived loudness of the bass content in an audio source. The software uses psycho-acoustics to calculate precise harmonics that are related to the fundamental tones of sound. When these harmonics are combined with the original signal, it creates the effect of lower, deeper frequencies that is apparent on virtually any speaker.

The plug-in also allows smaller speakers to appear to deliver a stronger and lower bass signal without damaging the smaller cones inside the speakers. The technology has been used to enhance the bass on many hit records, and in major motion pictures to deliver earth shattering effects.
