    Its range varies from subtle to extreme with nice sound sculpting capabilities and provides real warmth, depth … almost analog sound: GREAT!

    This plugin is a serious bit of kit! Right now Im working on live trax for a duo and myself as a performer. I do a very wide variety of material and I will use this plugin to replace my EVENTIDE DSP4000 which I was using as a final kind of mastering/level/bang/punch/clarity unit for my live stuff, till I sold it recently.
    I have not (right at this moment) used Masterdesk as a final part of any of my tracks, because it would be counter productive to have a unit this powerful hitting my mixes twice, as they are all for live use...BUT..it is a WOW unit..WARM FAT BITEY..Lets go back to fat and warm..mate I was pretty blown away to hear how it glued my stuff together..like that sound you get from a great analog console..when you are running/summing 60 + tracks together and it sort of "soups everything"...so the onion frequency effects the carrot frequency and the garlic frequency plays with the meat frequency so it all tastes SO GOOD WHEN YOU EAT IT haha
    Its the one MUST OWN..well actually I have had to get pretty well everything Brainworx has represented and made because they WORK PROPERLY on what I do....Far out..THANK YOU AGAIN BRAINWORX!!

    Masterdesk es una gran ayuda cuando necesitamos masterizar en poco tiempo, muy intuitivo y fácil de usar, lo comparé con mi cadena habitual de mastering y pude llegar al mismo resultado en menos de la mitad del tiempo. Muy efectivo en los procesos, todas las herramientas necesarias a la mano en un sólo lugar.

    Typical of many PA plugs, this one is on point. Sure you can master with some knowledge and some plugins, but this one is designed for just that. The feature set is innovative while also including tried and true tools that you'd expect to see on someones mastering setup. Of course, you can add it to any source that needs some mastering type touch up, and it sounds great. Nice work PA!

    I have been working in Mastering for more than a decade.
    Finally I find a tool 100% practical and intuitive, which allows me to reach an excellent result in record time. A true achievement of the Plugin Alliance!

    I was originally skeptical of this plugin, but now I'm blown away! It's extremely transparent, flexible and useful. Nice one!

    Cannot mix without it. The tone controls and foundation knob alone is worth the price plus you get all the other good stuff which is exactly that. Good Stuff. Smoother, Faster, workflow that gives me what I would call, "The Sound of Hits".

    Disappointing ! You'll need a brickwall limiter afterwards because transients will pop through. The EQ is overly subtle and the fixed frequencies might work ...or not. "Foundation" past 1 o'clock is mud. I hope Ver.2 is contemplated.
    Plugin Alliance response
    bx_masterdesk doesn't have an Intersample Peak Limiter, if that's what you mean when you say transients slip through. But this is intentionally, as I don't like the sound of those limiters. This whole plugin is subtle, as it is a mastering device. If you can't get mixes to balance with bx_masterdesk I strongly advise to go back and work on the mixes, or tell the engineer to go back and work on the mixes. I haven't run across a mix yet that I couldn't balance with this plugin. There is no V2 planned for bx_masterdesk at this point as I am and we are happy with the plugin, just like thousands of customers so far.I hope you'll get into the plugin more over time, maybe also try it on sub groups / stems, as I honestly feel it has a lot to offer, and we receive so much great feedback from hobbyists and pros alike right now.Best wishes, Dirk (designer of bx_masterdesk)
