ENRAGE is a highly addictive multi-modular FX processing tool that opens up unlimited possibilities in how you tweak and process your sounds. It will easily handle your daily FX plug-in needs but will also introduce you to a world of insanely wicked sound processing. ENRAGE is super responsive and extremely precise. To put it simple: ENRAGE will change the way you experience sounds.
FOR SOUND DESIGNERS & MUSIC PRODUCERS
THE ONE EFFECT PLUG-IN TO RULE THEM ALL
CREATE YOUR OWN EFFECTS WITH ENRAGE!
ENRAGE is an FX processing plug-in with more than 50 different devices waiting for you to chain them together and send your audio signal on a thrilling digital journey. Always remain in full control by modifying a multitude of parameters or let go and get inspired by ENRAGE’s more than 300 presets.
Choose from a list of over 50 FX devices, from classics like reverbs, delays and distortions to exciting stuff like splash filter, spectral warp and more.
Clicking a preset name opens the preset browser where you can keep track of all factory and user generated presets.
This area controls any triggered modulation, such as Curve, ADSR or the restart of LFO. You can trigger via audio (active by default) or MIDI.
The heart of ENRAGE. The Rack will serve as your signal chain building ground. Simply drag devices to change the input order, interweaving them in ways not possible on typical FX chains.
Take precise control of the currently selected device. There might be drop down menus, knobs, curves, numbers and or buttons, depending on the functionality of the device itself.
Choose from 12 different mod sources to create complex, interweaving FX movements. Design them and assign them with just a click and a drag.
Click and drag up to 24 different macro options to make your FX changes easily controllable by a twist of a knob or using your DAW's automation options.
ENRAGE IS A GIGANTIC TOOL BOX PACKED WITH UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES
Unlimited options. A wide range of devices. Extraordinary mod sources. The only barrier is your imagination. Combine any effects, create routing chains as simple or complicated as you need. Choose from over 50 devices, click and drag them into the rack, and change the parameters. ENRAGE’s modularity allows interacting and interwoven effect structures that cannot be achieved with typical serial effect chains. Expand the possibilities by simply dragging and dropping macro assignments to take further control.
GAIN & DYNAMICS
12 MODULATION SOURCES
A MOD SOURCE alters your sound by changing values over time. You can connect MOD SOURCES to DEVICE controls and even to other MOD SOURCE controls. When you apply modulation to the controls they change their value according to the shape of the modulation signal.
ENRAGE comes packed with over 300 factory presets, ready to twist, mangle, and madden your sounds. Load them, tweak them, create your own and share them with your friends.
ENRAGE 1.4 - WHAT'S NEW?
In response to your feedback, we got enraged and absolutely massacred our entire audio engine! Upon hulking out and smashing it to smithereens, we came back with a plugin that’s got improved efficiency, accuracy, and performance.
Obviously, we’re kidding, but we do listen to all your feedback and consider everything in our updates. With your help, it went from being a pretty sweet plugin on the market to something truly extraordinary.
NEW DEVICE – TAME
Tame can dynamically detect any peaks in the frequency spectrum, allowing you to remove unwanted resonances or even isolate them. Try it with the side-chain option!
NEW MOD SOURCES – SMOOTH & SPRING
Smooth is like a filter for modulation. When applied to other mod sources, it allows you to smooth things out and adjust the rise and fall times. Spring applies spring physics to your modulation to make your FX go boing.
We decided to get a little crazy and give you even more macro options. You can now assign up to 24 macro controls, so your sounds can get as complicated as your most enraged imagination.
ENRAGE is now freely scalable. Resize it to perfectly match your screen size.
We’ve added 60 new presets, making your preset pack have over 300 choices – a huge variety of starting off points to mangle your sounds. Search for “1.4” in the preset browser to explore them all.
BAND SPLITTER – LINEAR PHASE MODE
Better performance for better and more professional results. Eliminate phasing in the band splitter module to preserve the cleanest and most accurate signal.
ENRAGE is working smoother than ever under the hood. With automatic internal latency compensation, all the effects and modulation within ENRAGE are synced automagically if needed, so that everything stays in syn in your preset and in your DAW. Working with any device that introduces latency was never so easy.
ENRAGE was already blazingly fast and efficient. We still managed to have it operate up to 2x faster with up to 50% less CPU load.
Usability and workflow have been greatly improved. Store and recall Device configurations via drag and drop, save time with new shortcuts and context menus, and lots more!
Check out some of our tutorials to learn the first basic steps with ENRAGE and get you started. The tutorials can also be found in the manual (you can find the manual in the Tech Specs section on this page) under 7 – Tutorials. You can also find the effects from the tutorials in ENRAGE’s preset browser under Factory -> Tutorial.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT ENRAGE
“The BOOM Team has hit a big home run with their ENRAGE multi modular FX processor. For the basic FX I need, all the way to audio FX and combinations I would never even have conceived of, it sounds absolutely incredible!”
Jordan Rudess | Dream Theater
“Each processor has enough functionality to exist standalone, so we’re not talking abridged versions of studio mainstays. What’s more, the set of stereo processing, metering, routing and gain control tools makes ENRAGE a potent mastering powerhouse. If anything, it beats any modern DAW’s respectable collection of stock plug-ins out of the water.”
“ENRAGE is a real hit! I can do processing which I wasn’t able to hear or create before with any other plug-in. Both on instruments and drums, but also on sound effects, which adds to the fun fun fun by factor x.”
“ENRAGE is an entire research Lab for sound scientists, offering almost limitless possibilities for sound design. This is a plug-in that inspires you to experiment and produce surprising results. The interplay of the control section, the diverse mod sources and an extensive range of effects delivers great potential for new ideas.
If you want to put drums, synthesizers, samples, loops, single tracks or even whole mixes through the wringer, you should give ENRAGE a try. It’s worth it!”
“BOOM Library is manifesting with Enforcer a new generation plugin to push those subs, make sound effects bigger, create something new and in your face or create low-end sub sound shaking the audience.”
