    I just wanted you to know I have bought most of your plug-ins in the last few months. Your gear is truly amazing! Can't mix and master without them. Thanks so much for making these excellent tools. I am in the midst of some high-profile projects and am more than happy to spread the word.

    This is the most powerful tool for selective frequency level control and a real lifesaver. Last year I did the biggest "Mastered for Itunes" series for a german Artist - remastering more than 30 Albums that were recorded in between 1971 and 2004. Some of the Albums - especially the live albums - had some pretty harsh vocals with a lot of peaky parts.

    Because it’s M/S the Brainworx Dyn EQ 2 did a brilliant job controlling the vocals very effectively without sounding too obvious and touching the sides. I also used it very subtile on the low end of "Auf uns" - Germanys platinum selling Hymn of the Soccer World Cup 2014. The producer said - I don’t know what you did but the Bassdrum is much tighter, and the low end much clearer - well I just like it.

    The Brainworx Dyn EQ 2 changed the way I’m mastering quite dramatically because it takes the eq-ing where it’s needed and I don’t have to dip frequencies in the whole song or automate an EQ.

    The bx_dynEQ is the most essential thing you never even knew you needed. I hesitate to tell people how helpful it is. I’m almost afraid everyone will now be able to get kick-ass drum sounds and put me out of business.

    I don't even think of this as an equalizer. The 'key' feature (of bx_dynEQ) allows for innovative interaction like I've never seen before and, more importantly, sounds great!

    bx_dynEQ is my go-to dynamic EQ. It's very versatile and I find it great for handling some challenging fixing tasks. I love the external sidechain feature.

    bx_hybrid for me is the most useful plugin in the range for over all mix buss tweaking. The joystick controls for Lo and Hi are so simple to use and the cut and boost compliment each other perfectly, meaning that you can change the sound of a mix quite radically without over-EQing one part of the spectrum.

    The go to tool to resolve those frequencies that are too far forward or peaky. Great for reducing sibilance and resonant bass notes. Also useful for adding low end punch or dynamic mids.

    I cannot tell you the number of times that this has stopped me reaching for some awful EQ move. This will make your mixing better.

    The bx_dynEQ V2 is my best friend in so many ways. Surprisingly amazing during mastering when it comes to adding more dynamic range to mixes that seem to have a flatter response with drums. I can bring out the kick and snare of a master and allow it to pop more than it did originally. So if I can do this on a master…imagine what mixing with this thing is like!

    Producer/Mixer/Engineer (Emeli Sande, Roots Manuva, Lana del Rey)

    One of the main problems for me with most broadband EQs is the fact that they don't compensate for dynamics. When a mix is dynamic it can soon become too bright at the peak of crescendo or too boxy when quiet. This plugin will completely eliminate this by constantly adjusting to compensate.

    Engineer/Vocal Producer (Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga)

    This is one of my new favorite plugins from Brainworx. It is by far one of the most flexible and precise tools I use on a consistent basis to manage harsh frequencies across a vocal buss. I'm blown away with how transparent it is, even beyond moderate settings.

    Steve Mac

    Songwriter/Producer (Rhythm Masters/Bunker Recording Studios)

    This is a great dynamic eq. It's very fast and very accurate with the frequencies; plus I love the fact it has the de-esser.

    Mixing/Recording Engineer (Fergie, Q-Tip, Jennifer Lopez)

    Used in every mix I do, this dynamic eq brings my groups and busses to life. Enhancing or taming specific frequency areas in the program gives a lot of power to this processor, while the stereo width processing is second to none.
