yet another great one
I love this Brainwork bx_console E! It sounds great on mixes and it's the perfect all in one plugin. You don't have to search for a separate eq, compressor or gate to do the job, everything is there in this great sounding console emulation. The presets are professionally put together and it gives you a top-notch starting point. To sum it all up, I just love it!!!
Tight low-end, lovely EQ, and an all-round great sound. I often just use the hi/low-pass filters or the THD. CPU use is vert light, I have it on every channel of my live set. The compressor is pretty smashing too. Great job Brainworx!!!
I'm a huge fan of the BX Console VXS as it is awesome in every respect and so when this E version came out I had to try it right away. Just as I thought I would, I fell instantly in love with this E channel strip and soon after bought it. The personality it brings to every instrument is amazing. The choices of the brown and black eq's along with the phenomenal compressor section can take my mixes anywhere from grit clarity to clean and smooth. Crank up the input and the real personality comes out just like the original console. The individual channel modeling is again a winner as it takes what might have been a cookie cutter sound and instead gives each track just enough variance to make it alive. I absolutely LOVE the size of the GUI as I can see every detail of the strip unlike other makers where I would spend more time squinting and guessing than I would tweaking my sound. On this channel strip I think I would prefer colored knob caps like the original instead of the indicator lines but this is not a deal breaker in any sense. This has become my go to channel strip when I want the SSL type sound -which is seemingly all the time since this came out. I would also love to see Brainworx come out with a classic Neve type of channel strip such as from the 8028 or 8068, etc and configure in a little 2254 compressor in each strip to make it complete. Great job on this E console, it is truly an awesome work!
After using the original BX Console for the past few months and being very happy with the sonic results, it was a no-brainer to get the BX Console E on release. Where the BX Console gives my channels girth, the BX Console E gives my drum and bass busses the punch that I was looking for.
I really like the mix/match approach to the compression/gate sections between E and G series and the ability to switch between EQ modules. The introduction of the random channel selector is a sweet addition, as is the harmonic distortion dial.
this plugin's getting a lot of use.
Excelente Channel strip Emulando a la Lejendaria Consola SSL E . Me encanta su agresividad en su tonalidad de ecualizacion y dinamicas.Good Job Plugin Alliance ..
I am not going into technical details here and will go straight to the point, this channel strip sound tremendously musical. Easy to dial the right settings to get the best sound and by this I mean, if you can't get your mixes to sound pristine with this tool I highly suggest you pick another job!
For the first time through my humble career in digital recording and mixing, this plugin felt like working with a real console. You tweak something and it actually makes an impact on the sound, not just changing it. First thing I tried to mix was a bass drum that wasn´t well recorded and I had no problem making the sound big and punchy. I guess the "aggressivness" of the eq is the key, even a small adjustment makes a big difference. Just wonderful. I´ve used SSL emulations before and though they sounded good, they only sounded good as a plugin and always had that plastic feeling to the sound. This one on the other hand just feels right and musical.
The eq and expander/gate is what I like the most. The compressor sound good but I tend to use other ones for a couple of reasons; first one is tone. I tend to favor compressors that shapes the tonal characteristics than just evening out the dynamics and the SSL comp is more of the later. I use though, but usually I insert one more compressor for the tone shaping.
The filters work a little weird for me, doesn´t sound like 12 dB/octave to me, more like 3 dB/octave, so don´t use them that much.
I´ve have not spent that much time listening to how different channels sound, but I use the random function so every track gets it´s own unique channel.
Conclusion: wonderful plugin, just a pure joy using it in my work.
Amazing emulation of SSL Channel Strips. Great sound and versatility.
We have even compared to our SSL G4000+ and it sounds even better than the real thing.
