    I was skeptical of this miracle box at first, but it very quickly won me over. I was trying to remaster some mixes that I wasn't happy with and had been trying a bunch of solutions, including ozone and some other plugin chains. None of it really got there for me. This, on the other hand, gets amazing results very quickly. I still find dropping some tape simulation beforehand can fatten it up nicely (I like the UAD studer 800) but this then does the compression, eq and limiting beautifully. And the resonance filters are also extremely sweet. Great job. Very impressed. Gives me the confidence that I can get professional sounding masters quickly.

    I am utterly amazed at how delicious this plug-in sounds. It is the first plug that truly sounds analog from top to bottom. It has an incredible effect on finished audio, even when you think you can’t get an ounce more air and bottom, this plug adds an incredible amount of detail across the spectrum and always retains a smooth analog sound.
    I admit that I employ a hybrid analog setup during tracking, mixing and mastering... however, this plug is in a class by itself and is so well conceived and so easy to use, I must congratulate the developers who created this.
    Also, thank you Plugin Alliance for offering the plug-in for only $99 to us members. You truly do treat us well.

    I just used this as the key pieces in my mastering chain for a whole album I just recently mastered for Billboard Magazine. Amazing! Great for overall tone sculpting and the compression algorithms are spot on! The only additional plugins used were the bx-V3 to carve out some problem frequencies and my favorite Limiter and ditherer at the end of the chain. Wish list would include a bypass for each section, A/B level matching pre/post-processing, and a little bit more comprehensive metering. A great new weapon to add to the arsenal.

    Although I already work with world-class tools (Weiss DS1-MK3-MM1, Kush Audio Clariphonic, Zynaptiq Intensive......) in the mastering area, bx_masterdesk once again refines the overall analog impression, opens up new spaces and ultimately smoothes out unevenness.

    when i first tried out the bx_masterdesk i found it to be a very good-sounding plugin. but i wasn't sure if it could hold up with my expectations when it comes to mastering. luckily, i had a song in three different versions on my harddisk: the original mix, then a master by a very well-known german indiemusic mastering engineer and a version by a lesser known but still great german mastering engineer who once remastered a lot of beatles-records for EMI. so i tried to get as close as possible to those two mastered versions with the bx_masterdesk. and what can i say? after some time getting used to the way this plugin works i was able to reproduce both masters. not perfectly, though, but those are expensive masters and i was just sitting there playing around on my laptop with my DT 880 pro headphones and some beer. what i want to say comes down to this: at the end of the day you can send your clients a nice-sounding, glossy, punchy, wide and open final version of your mix just with the turn of a few buttons. from that point onwards you can still trust your favourite mastering engineer, which i also still prefer. but you need this. really.

    Sounds fantastic, easy to dial in and pretty light weight latency wise. I've found this incredibly handy on the master bus as a quick master for demos, previews and pitches for clients where I don't want to spend too much time on the mastering process. The results are incredibly good for something which literally takes a few seconds to dial in.
