    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.

    This is a no nonsense kick drum processor. I find this very useful when I'm stuck with all the drums on a stereo channel.

    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!
