Since 2006, Brainworx Germany has developed a reputation for creating sonically-advanced plugin tools as well as a multi-platform development framework that is second to none. Brainworx highlights include the M/S-standard EQ, bx_digital V2, and world-class guitar amp simulations. Founder & CEO Dirk Ulrich started Brainworx to develop tools that would solve problems and improve workflows for his own production and mastering projects. The ethos of “built by professionals for professionals” remains a core value of the company.
We recently caught up with Ryan Farish in the studio to discuss some of his favourite features in the bx_oberhausen as well as the presets he designed for it.Read More
bx_rooMS is a very special product. Sure there are many great reverbs out there but it stands out from the crowd with it’s rich sound and flexible intuitive interface. It’s really a sound designer's dream, but it never feels confusing. bx_rooMS can create everything from beautiful true-to-life spaces to the strange and impossible. The added Quick Controls allow me to easily get in the zone and then tweak from there. The Source Distance, Directivity, M/S and EQ just take it to another level. Easily the only reverb I may ever need.
I work a lot with mix busses in my DAW and I love the Focusrite Console, it just does the job and sounds great. Both modules are easily to adjust and work together perfectly. The sound is fantastic, the EQs don't get harsh or muddy at any point. You can make sounds shine in the mix in seconds; also warming up bass sounds and getting a tight and punchy low end is done quick and easily. Same goes if you want to get a vocal smooth and in-your-face. I like that you can get both - a clean and tight sound - but also a very analogue one. Great to have this in my setup - and it’s fun to work with!
It has to be said there is no other plugin quite like it for moving air in a large arena. I love the how simple it is, and its flawlessness in its triggering of the dynamic EQ, which give the amazing natural sounding thump to the kick drum.
