What a great tool to have it saves a lot of time. WoW
Masterdesk is an ingenious tool, especially if you have to mix a master in a short time (Jingle, commercial, etc.). But also for demo tracks in a small budget project. Easy to use, big in effect!
Master desk is very well designed

If I could give it 4.5 stars I would have. It can range from subtle to extreme with fairly extensive sound sculpting capabilities. Gives real warm, deep, analog sound that is rich. Metering is just adequate. I also found it a little tricky to push that little extra loudness for the master, but you can eventually tweak to get there. This plugin offers a great one-stop shop for professional sounding masters for good mixes.
After about a month of daily use, I love this unit. Is it a mastering solution? No, not a professional tool but I’m using everyday to give quick, decent references to my mixing clients. I believe those laptop jockeys that would’ve never used a real mastering house will be the core adopters, it’ll never replace my real mastering chain, regardless I’ll still use it for the tasks I described above. Good work Dirk.

I love this plugin, it works well,easy to use, great concept. I give it 4 stars because im having some Random freezes/Crashes on Cubase when i load it.
Quick and easy
Enjoyable to use and good sounding results!
BX Masterdesk rocks!
Have been using it in my 2 bus for mixes just to see if it’ll work, my workflow is a top down style to mix. Masterdesk has not only opened up but has helped my mixes come together in a more predictable way. Also have been using it to master tracks for clients all I can saunas “ridiculous”!! This thing is ssssweet! I work for a broadcast network so turnaround time is always super fast. Masterdesk has made it so much easier, helping me produce masters that make my clients happy, the network loves what they hear. Thank you guys!!!
Great sound - time saver
bx_masterdesk is exactly what I need to get a quick mix out to clients that they can listen to on their home system, car, ear buds and that stands up to a commercial mix. Easy to use, simple understandable UI that exposes enough control to let you do some fine tuning, plus some great presets to use as as staring points. PA has done all the have lifting for you. Very happy with it!
Truly the easiest and most convincing all in one mastering tool I tried so far. It provides for clean and transparent masters and helps fix the main issues swiftly. Of course, it works better when the mix itself is already balanced. 2 minor issues though : it is not so obvious to set the max level in the optimal zone, and it lacks dithering functions
Great Tool to have
I was very sceptical. There were and are so many companies who are advertising with "the best mastering plugin". But the quality on this one is great as usual. It is easy to use and it does the job well! I do use a little bit of EQ and Tape before the plugin and after the Weiss MM1. But that's just a personal taste. I also tried using it on my synths and drum bus. It's not just a mastering tool.
