Plugin of the Decade! (Future Music UK)
- Plugin Info
- bx_digital V2 incl. Mono version
bx_digital V2 is a state-of-the-art digital mastering processor that provides you with a mastering class 11-band equalizer, M/S De-Esser, Mono-Maker and intelligent Bass- and Presence-Shifters, plus extra M/S features, such as Pan for M&S, and Stereo Width Control.
bx_digital V2 works in 3 modes(!) including a sophisticated “M/S Mastering” mode and emulates the three most outstanding modes of the analogue Modus EQ bx1, whereas the software offers literally all the features of the hardware including the M/S-Solo-Buttons, and a lot of functions that the hardware doesn´t even offer (Auto Listen, etc).
The plugin is available for AAX (Native), TDM, RTAS, VST and AU systems and can be purchased in our bx_shop. A UAD2 version is available and can be purchased at UNIVERSAL AUDIO’s website.

- This plug-in rocks!
I'm mixing Erykah Badu's album right now and had a song mixed by someone else the was a mess. I used the V2 plug to readjust the mix so it would work. In the increading world of professional mixers becoming "fixers" instead, this is an essential mixing tool. -
- I love bx_digital and bx_control
We have produced all of Marit’s songs in our studio, and I love bx_digital and bx_control, they are smart and well thought out. And they sound great. We have been helping to improve the ICON mapping in co-operation with Brainworx and the new V2s work really well with our touch sensitive faders and controllers. Go Brainworx! -
- Really well thought out
Great for going really deep in M/S and carving the frequency balance and stereo image to your liking. The interface is really well thought out. I know it's primarily a mastering tool but I use it within the mix as well. -
- My definitive mastering plug in
Like all other Brainworx plug-ins, this plug-in has lots of really useful features, a very nice interface and a great sound. My definitive mastering plug in. -
- The smoothest EQ plugin I've ever heard
I've used Brainworx bx_digital on virtually every mix I've done in the last two years. Not only does it have incredibly useful features that no other EQ plug-in has, this thing is possibly the smoothest EQ plugin I've ever heard (and I have about 20 different EQ plug-ins). -
- I was blown away with the Brainworx plugins!
I just wanted to tell you that I was blown away with the Brainworx plugins! I can't remember the last time I got a smile from ear to ear when I started tweaking the parameters of a plugin. I think your design is extremely well done and it shows a visionary type of attitude that I appreciate. -
- Good stuff
That V2 is exhaustive the 1st time you use it. Like someone hands you a road map where you can go any direction. Good stuff. -
- One of the most powerful EQ instruments ever
This is one of the most powerful EQ instruments ever made - period! (and yes, I did call it instrument). -
- The band solo function is a fantastic innovation
I also use bx_digital V2 a lot and find the band solo function is a fantastic innovation when seating out a troublesome frequencycentre. -
- Can't mix and master without them.
I just wanted you to know I have bought most of your plug-ins in the last few months. Your gear is truly amazing! Can't mix and master without them. Thanks so much for making these excellent tools. I am in the midst of some high-profile projects and am more than happy to spread the word. -
- Does do it all
Finally a plug-in for mastering that really does do it all, but actually sounds great. It even has a mid/side de-esser! -
- some of the most useful tools I've ever seen
bx_hybrid and bx_digital have quickly become the only EQs I use in mastering sound effects. The presence and bass shifters are some of the most useful tools I've ever seen in any plugin, and I wish I'd had them 10 years ago. The stereo width control, mono maker, the amazing solo features, I'm simply stunned at how useful this plugin is in almost everything I do. And because I record mostly in M/S, that it can do that too makes Brainworx the only EQ and first plugin I ever reach for anymore. Period. -
- his is our #1 eq for finalizing masters at Beach Road Mastering
This is our #1 eq for finalizing masters at Beach Road Mastering. The M-S controls are incredible and allow us to really dig into the finer details of a master. The tone of the EQ is super sweet, with unparalleled control over every frequency band. The bass and presence shifters give us that Pultec-ish trick sound that is almost always called for, and the De-Esser section is ridiculously useful on masters that have a vocal with a bit too much top end, yet still need the upper frequencies for the rest of the instruments. Kissing the stereo width section just gives a very subtle widening effect without ever doing damage to the image, and the metering is as high end as we have to expect from BX. If we only had 1 EQ in the world, this would be the one to have!! -
- This thing is truly a swiss army knife
This thing is truly a swiss army knife. The brainworx is fantastic for doing surgical cuts on tracks, such as vocals or guitars. I find myself isolating unwanted frequencies and resonances quickly thanks to its Auto Solo listen feature. I also always have one on my master buss, where little eq moves and presence shifts go such a long way. The mid-side processing functionality is perfect for busses (drums, guitars, etc). I love that I can easily link or unlink the mid and sides on EVERY frequency band! Oh yeah, and the de-esser is quite possibly the best I've used. No joke. -
