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.
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.
Besides the original concept, the bx_oberhausen also comes with really great effects to make the most subtle or brutal patches you can imagine. A must-have for synth enthusiasts!
