Overview

State-of-the-Art Mixing & Mastering EQs

Using heralded filter-designs from Brainworx, the bx_hybrid V2 was re-designed from the ground up to deliver the sound of analog filters combined with awesome digital features and workflow. Bx_hybrid also maps to all the features of the AVID ICON center section EQ, including its Surround Joysticks.


There is nothing like the Bass Shift for tweaking bass drums, and try the Presence Shift for acoustic guitars or female voices.

A sophisticated Auto Solo Mode solos single frequency bands. You can also tweak Q controls with a mouse click or via your physical controller’s touch sensitive EQ knobs.
Using the latest Brainworx filter design, these EQs allow for digital EQ-ing up to 26kHz, even in low-res sessions (44.1 and 48kHz).

Features

  • Brainworx critically acclaimed filters
  • Artifact free EQ-ing up to 26kHz.
  • 11 EQ bands including Shelving Filters, Hi- & Low-Pass, Notch Filters & Peak Bands
  • 64-Bit & AAX (DSP & Native) Support
  • New and innovative Solo Modes
  • Auto Solo Mode for soloing single frequency bands
  • Notch filters with adjustable Q, and Shifter EQs that can be controlled with the ICON’s Surround Joysticks or your mouse.
  • "Mouse Over" feature: adjust the parameters by holding the mouse over any knob and simply turning your mouse wheel
  • Direct access: just type in any valid number into the text fields for direct access to the exact value
  • Switchable EQ graphic panel
  • Fully automatable
