Crafting great sounding masters has never been easier
bx_masterdesk Classic gives you the sound of a complete high-end analog mastering system in one incredibly easy to use plugin. Dial in professional sounding masters with tastefully curated chains of some of the best mastering gear available in just 3 simple steps.

Amazing models of top-tier mastering gear in an incredibly intuitive layout
Just like the original bx_masterdesk, the new bx_masterdesk Classic allows you to master your own tracks with a minimal learning curve, even if you aren’t a trained mastering engineer. It shares all the same pro-quality mastering chains with the original version—now in an even easier and more compact package.

Persuasively professional masters in 60 seconds?
Believe it or not, but bx_masterdesk Classic can help you churn out high-quality masters in under a minute. It’s just a matter of toggling through the carefully crafted presets to get you in the ballpark, and then using three key dials if desired to help perfect your sound. Whether you’re a musician, engineer or producer, bx_masterdesk will help you get the sound you deserve quickly.

Mastering that’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
First, decide how hard your music will hit the processing chain with the “Volume” control. Use the Dynamic Range VU meter to help you find the sweet spot for a master that sounds loud without sacrificing quality. Second, use the “Foundation” control to adjust the overall tonality of the master for your ideal balance between lows and highs. Finally, adjust the “Tone” to fine tune the vibe of your master from bright to dark. Practically any setting will sound good! So confidently let your taste be the guide. If desired, you can tweak even further by adjusting the THD and stereo enhancement controls for added girth and width.

  • Simple 3-step workflow and clear intuitive metering

    This plugin won't solve any fundamental problems in a mix but it gives a pretty accurate picture of how much there's work left with it. The less I have to tweak this tool, the better. At the same… Read More
