The bx_oberhausen draws deeply from Brainworx Audio’s extensive experience of working with analog audio equipment to creatively craft world class mixing and mastering plugins.
As the cutting-edge company’s highly-anticipated first Virtual Instrument, it effectively revisits an acclaimed analog synthesizer expander module much loved by generations of musicians for its sought-after sound. The sound itself is reliant on fully-analog, discrete circuits and a classic state-variable 2-pole filter. Some of the key features which have never been done before on this synth is a powerful unison mode, M/S Technology and the signature Brainworx Audio Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT).
Full analog modelling
Original or otherwise, the acclaimed analog synthesizer’s sound now benefits from the ultimate upgrade. Thanks to Brainworx Audio ably boosting bx_oberhausen with full polyphony of up to 32 voices, twice the voice count of today’s priciest poly synths remaining resolutely in the analog domain, users can create sounds that are not possible using the original hardware!
Using Brainworx’s proprietary, patent-pending Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) to accurately replicate individual component variations specified by the manufacturer. This creates, in separate voices slight variations which you would expect to hear in an original analog instrument. With TMT each voice produces a slightly different sound including variations in frequencies and phases as well as frequency responses - exactly like an analog hardware would.These slight variations add the complexity, nuance, depth and width for which analog instruments are loved.
The voices can be combined to a powerful unison mode. When used with the unique TMT feature, Unison generates a rich, complex and analog sound unparalleled by any other virtual instruments.
Introducing an unheard feature to the world of synthesizers, this allows you to select which part of your sound passes through the filter section and which doesn't. Allowing for subtle effects like solid bass foundation as well as crazy stereo processing.
These are not just effects. We took some of our best products and shrunk them into an effects rack that is proudly carrying the Brainworx brand. We also asked our partners at Mäag to add their infamous AIR BAND®. The signal chain in the effects section can easily be altered by a drag & drop function.
Extensive Modulation Matrix
The modulation matrix gives you a whole dimension of sound design possibilities.
Adding Frequency Modulation to an analog synth classic allows you to push the boundaries of creativity much further than the original synthesizers.
The arpeggiator comes with all the functions you would expect from it - including an adjustable "swing" parameter.
In-Plugin Preset Management with NKS support
The preset management system allows you to categorize your presets for easy retrieval. You can mark favorites and add your own comments.The bx_oberhausen comes fully loaded with over 300 presets created by the most renowned professionals.The preset management system is fully NKS compliant and nicely integrated with NKS-enabled products.
