The Brainworx bx_2098 plugin is modeled after the iconic Amek 9098 EQ. The original, Neve-designed hardware has been reproduced in stunning detail by the Brainworx team. Now you can harness the power and tone of this classic British EQ in your own mixing and mastering sessions.

There will be a full-blown 9098 TMT console plugin later, and existing users will be able to upgrade for a minimum fee. No release dates to be announced yet, but we´ll let you know about it in time for sure.

Brainworx have added some truly innovative plugin-only features to the bx_2098 EQ updating it for the modern producer. Using patent-pending TMT (Tolerance Modeling Technology) you can use up to 20 truly varied instances across your mix. In addition to this the bx_2098 features full M/S control and a dedicated THD parameter.

Full Brainworx M/S capabilities mean the bx_2098 EQ is ready for modern sessions. Manipulate the Mid and Side information in your audio completely independently to create width and punch. Control your critical low end mix with the famed Mono Maker and isolate the Mid/Side information to focus on your processed sound.

By utilizing the Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) from our bx_console products we have created an EQ that allows you to use 20 truly unique channels across your mix. When applying these different models to stereo versions of the plugin you can induce serious width to your sounds whilst simultaneously imparting the real character of analog hardware.

Some EQs lack character and tone but the bx_2098 EQ employs several features that ensure you get the real analog experience. The THD parameter is perfect for dialing in just the right amount of controlled distortion. This is faithful to the original circuitry we modeled and helps you reproduce results until now only possible with real hardware.

Features

  • An astoundingly accurate model of a classic British hardware EQ in your DAW.
  • Use twenty truly varied channels of the bx_2098 EQ across your mix using patent-pending TMT.
  • Introduce analog style harmonic distortion using the THD control.
  • Full M/S capabilities give you absolute control over any element in your mix.

    Love this EQ. We did all our big Morcheeba Albums with 2 of these and I always wanted the whole console. Now I've got as many channels as I like (well almost)!

    Amek's 9098 channel strip incorporated (Rupert) Neve's legendary designs. The bx_2098 pays serious homage to the classic 9098's 4 band EQ plus HPF/LPF design with incredible accuracy and realism.… Read More

    I've used bx_V3 digital for mastering for a couple of years. Never thought it could be better. I was wrong. bx_2098 EQ is the new spacerocket in mastering. Organic, precise and musical.

    It's magic!
    by JoDell Playmaker
    Very impressive eq. I felt it was easy to dial in a nice, musical sound. I like what it brings out of my low-mids in my electric guitars. That being said, it is a versatile eq and I recommend using… Read More
