Quickly mix live performances like a professional mixing engineer

The Brainworx bx_enhancer plugin includes an input tuner display, saturator, compressor, equalizer (EQ), clipper, Auto Level feature, input and output gain controls, and various meters. It has a pre-configured signal path that simplifies the mixing process, making it an ideal mixing plugin for musicians with limited mixing experience. The controls are simple and allow you to thicken, tighten, and shape the tone of recordings with minimal effort.

Visualize the tuning of instruments in real time

The bx_enhancer’s built-in tuner display makes tuning stringed instruments, analog synths, and percussive elements straightforward. By default, 440 Hz is the tuner’s reference frequency, but you can select any value between 300-500 Hz, including popular alternative tunings like 432 Hz or 415 Hz. bx_enhancer’s tuner can help you notice pitch drift throughout the duration of a performance, making it a critical quality assurance tool.

Put a saturator, compressor, EQ, and clipper at your fingertips

Brainworx's bx_enhancer is an all-in-one plugin for mixing individual tracks and groups, integrating the three most essential mixing tools into one package. These include a saturator, compressor, and EQ, each typically applied directly to a track to enhance sound quality. There’s also a built-in clipper capable of harmonic distortion. With reverb and delay set up on aux tracks, bx_enhancer provides all the features necessary to mix a song from start to finish while infusing it with analog vibes.

Create wide and controlled mixes

Advanced controls include a Mono Maker, Stereo Width knob, Pan control, and Mix parameter. The Mono Maker sums sounds into mono up to 1,500 Hz, ensuring a tighter, clearer low-end with reduced phase issues. By adjusting the Stereo Width knob, you can narrow or widen elements in your mix to fit appropriately within the stereo field. Dialing back the Mix parameter controls the blend between the dry and wet signal, applying all of the plugin’s effects in parallel.

Eliminate loudness bias

The bx_enhancer's Auto Level feature addresses the common issue of loudness bias, which can trick your ears into thinking that louder sounds appear subjectively better. This feature matches the plugin’s output level to its input level. By eliminating loudness bias, bx_enhancer helps you make well-informed mixing decisions and achieve the polished results you’re looking for.
