Product Reviews

  • Brainworx bx_cleansweep Pro

    Brainworx bx_cleansweep is a surprisingly useful free plugin that is incredibly simple to use. It's got a high pass and low pass which are simultaneously controlled with a joystick interface. This X/Y filter style is a game changer. I call it the 'Far Away' plugin because it's the best way to gently bring sounds in and out of the mix.

  • Brainworx bx_console N

    Brainworx bx_console N is life! It gives you access to the big console sound beloved by Neve users at a fraction of the price. It's my channel strip of choice.

  • ProAudioDSP DSM V2

    Dynamic Spectrum Mapper was first shown to me by Seth Drake and I use it every time I need to get a new track ready to play out. It allows you to copy the dynamic spectrum from one track and apply it to another. This means I can match a new song to all of my other tracks.

  • Maag Audio EQ2

    Maag EQ2 is a great EQ when you want to boost warmly. I NEVER boost without analog modeling. Maag EQ2 has that sauce. Get some!

  • Brainworx bx_control V2

    Brainworx bx_control offers the best stereo control of any plugin I own. I use it as a utility to both widen and constrain the stereo field and I consider it indispensable when mixing down a track.
