Unlock the sound of an analog-modeled dream

Brainworx’s bx_console AMEK 200 is a console plugin that combines the sound of the AMEK EQ 200, AMEK Mastering Compressor, and the gate/expander of the bx_console AMEK 9099; it would be nearly impossible for a console like this to exist in the real world. The complexities of physically integrating the components and the cost associated with such a hardware unit make the bx_console AMEK 200 an analog-modeled dream come true.

A blend between 80s mastering-grade transparency and “analog vibe”

The bx_console AMEK 200 is the successor to the bx_console AMEK 9099, which delivers the sound of the Rupert Neve-designed AMEK 9098i Master Console. Analog-modeled circuits infuse this channel strip with the analog vibe bx_consoles are known for. Featuring an optimized GUI layout, the bx_console AMEK 200 allows you to mix and master your music with the transparency, precision, and detail of mastering-grade analog hardware from the 80s.

Gain the clarity of the AMEK EQ 200 and Mastering Compressor

The EQ section of the bx_console AMEK 200 integrates a five-band version of the AMEK EQ 200, recreating the unique sound of the most legendary parametric equalizers from the 70s and 80s. This plugin also includes the compression circuit from Brainworx’s AMEK Mastering Compressor, responding in a natural logarithmic way to audio, just like the human ear. These audio processors are well known for their unwavering clarity.

Simplify your mixing and mastering workflow

Say “goodbye” to the hassle of toggling between multiple plugins. The bx_console AMEK 200 is designed to handle a wide range of mixing and mastering tasks, all while consuming less CPU power than using individual instances of its included tools. This frees up your computer’s resources, allowing you to focus on the creative aspects of your project.

Add realistic analog variation to your mixes

The bx_console AMEK 200 features Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT), which precisely mimics the component tolerances found in real analog hardware. This technology captures the subtle variations and nuances that make analog gear so appealing. As a result, each track processed with the bx_console AMEK 200 will exhibit unique characteristics, exactly like the individual channels of an analog console.

    Two beautiful sounding channels. Both the AMEK 9099 and the 200. Had them both, one at a time on the stereo buss of a country-rock mix I'm doing right now. A touch of 60Hz Shelf. A touch of 20KHz… Read More
