Does anyone know what sort of EQ (ie. Foobar EQ or impulse) would best emulate the PPA bass boost?

I have tried the SuperMacro bass boost as well as raising the low frequencies on the Foobar EQ, and the PPA one is just *different*. The PPA bass boost doesn't seem to be a simple lifting of the bass (ie. the sound seems to change beyond that).

PPA (and M³) bass boost is a 6dB/octave low pass shelving filter. Choice of corner frequency will affect the sound. Read the Bass Boost section at http://elvencraft.com/ppa/ for more info.

Thanks, Morsel

What would be the best way to apply this effect to an impulse file so that when I convolve the file in Foobar I get a PPA-like bass boost?
