Overview

The bx_saturator V2 is an M/S & multi-band saturation tool that’s ideal for mastering, mixing and sound-design.

It features Brainworx´s “True Split” crossover technology, which ensures that the Mid and Side channels are always perfectly in phase, resulting in focused, huge-sounding mixes and masters.

From subtle mix glue to insane crunch, the bx_saturator V2 lets you fatten and distort Mid and Side signals of your mix independently. You can dial in analog warmth and subtle overdrive on individual tracks, or apply it to the stereo bus to thicken an entire mix.

You can also bring out delicate nuances previously lurking in your vocal tracks, acoustic guitar tracks, and even percussion sub mixes, without increasing their level and without heavy-handed EQ-ing. Louder Mixes, Smarter Saturation

Each of the four XL frequency bands have dedicated gain, drive and XL (mix) controls allowing you to increase the perceived volume of the signals without boosting its actual output level, giving you louder, punchier mixes.

Features

  • Add saturation in different amounts and in different frequency bands
  • Increase the perceived volume of mixes without clipping
  • Mono Maker mixes low frequencies mono, so you can widen the stereo field without phase issues
  • Improved audio algorithm in V2
  • AAX DSP support

    I really really dig so many of the bx plugins. Can’t live anymore without the bx_digital V2 and bx_saturator V2 among others
