  • Loud and Proud - Superb Mastering Tool

    ★★★★★
    by AreG
    The bx_XL gives you that "mastered" sound and goes insanely loud and clear without squashing/distorting your mix. Setup requires a few more seconds than traditional multiband limiters/maximizers. The key is setting the Mid Lo/Mid Hi Crossover Frequency and input level correctly and using the ingenious (!) XL knobs. Very flexible mastering tool. I use the word "tool" because the bx_XL is so much more than just a limiter - the m/s and monitoring functionalities are absolutely superb. You can even disable the limiter in the bx_XL and use it to balance your mix (m/s). There is no doubt that Plugin Alliance is the new überstandard for ITB mastering.

    It works perfectly! I was worried when I saw the review about the distorted low end and so I checked it thoroughly. No problem - works like a bomb.This id a very good mastering and mixing limiter - it really does what the write-up says. As with all the Brainworx stuff - quality and efficiency and features that other manufacturers don't provide which just make your job easier!

    The distortion in the bass band in awful. Every time the level hits the threshold there is a huge distortion which makes it impossible to limit the low frequencies. The idea ist superb but the implementation must be updated. For this price I like to have something with outstanding sound quality, so please revise this plugin.

    This is the best thing happened to me musically ever to discover Plugin Alliance & the M/S mastering mode. So much clearer sound & total control. With this limiter you can with ease master your tracks to a professional level. The best thing is that it does not sound squashed at all! Top Product!
