Equalizers for harmonic control


Closely related to the MES 430B EQs found in high end mastering studios. This is a direct descendant of the first parametric EQs, made without inductors or switches for an uncompromising signal path. It features fully variable controls to provide the freedom and control mixing engineers demand.

Harris Doyle Natalus EQ

Passive EQ with magnetic peak saturation for a more musical sound. More than just a gorgeous-sounding passive equalizer. Its unique “Peak Level” control fattens audio while preserving dynamics, adding magnetically controlled dynamics processing to your signal—similar to the kinds of gentle compression and saturation you’d find in a well-calibrated tape machine.

Knif Audio Soma EQ

Mastering-grade passive tube EQ that’s smooth, refined and precise. This boutique EQ updates the passive tube EQ approach, offering a cleaner, more flexible tone, as well as more precise EQ adjustments to meet the demands of contemporary mastering engineers.

TOMO Audio labs LISA EQ

The only tool of its kind. An all-analog dynamic EQ, featuring a dedicated opto compressor cell for each of its 6 bands. This exacting model of the original brings a new way of applying dynamic EQ to the digital domain. Now you can take advantage of the character and workflow of this boutique mastering-grade hardware in the box.

Dangerous BAX EQ

One of the smoothest sounding EQs on the market. An exacting model of the mastering-grade Dangerous Music BAX EQ hardware unit, featuring Peter Baxandall’s world-class 1950s tone control that has graced hundreds of millions of hi-fi systems. Use it to add brightness to your mixes without harshness, and craft a fat mud-free low end.

Two from the masters of console emulation

bx_console SSL 9000 J

The big, deep and clear sound of the Solid State Logic 9000 series consoles officially-authorized by SSL. The sound of the  legendary SSL console behind major releases from Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Madonna, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, featuring presets from Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, Grizzly Bear).

bx_console AMEK 200

The latest console emulation from Brainworx. This is the successor to the bx_console AMEK 9099, delivering the sound of the Rupert Neve-designed AMEK 9098i Master Console. Analog-modeled circuits infuse this channel strip with the analog vibe bx_consoles are known for. Featuring an optimized GUI layout, the bx_console AMEK 200 allows you to mix and master your music with the transparency, precision, and detail of mastering-grade analog hardware from the 80s.

Compressors for cohesion and balance with analog feel


The latest release from Brainworx, delivering vintage warmth and digital precision. The definitive VCA bus compressor. Bring whole mixes together and enhance individual tracks with vintage glue. 

Purple Audio MC-77

Meet your new favorite FET compressor. Terrific on bass guitars, kicks, vocals, parallel processing, buses and more. With the MC77 you have access to the same unrivaled tone and lightning-fast response as the original 1176, with the added bonus of onboard sidechaining, stereo linking, and more.


A unique Vari-Mu compressor with a dual circuit topology. Specially designed Mu-Metal iron transformer splits the signal between two distinctly different tubes, 12AX7/ECC83 and  12AU7/ECC82, each with a slightly different compression curve and feel. These two separate tube compression circuits run in parallel, recombining to taste, for a uniquely flexible approach to tube compression.

Mäag Audio Magnum-K

The audio engineer’s favorite.  Composed of two serial compressor sections (MAGNUM COMP and K COMP), a very musical Parallel EQ (with LMF and Mäag's signature AIR BAND®), plus a Soft Limit (soft limiter). Complete with 20 unique analog TMT channels.

bx_limiter True Peak

Better than any conventional digital limiter while also eliminating troublesome intersample peaks for even cleaner results, featuring a customizable loudness meter for hitting specific loudness targets, a correlation meter for checking phase coherence, and the ability to monitor the center, sides, and L/R channels separately or solo’d in place.

Mastering plugins for polishing and perfecting your tracks

bx_masterdesk PRO

The ultimate all-in-one mastering solution. The iconic tone stack of the original bx_masterdesk, expanded and improved with a fully featured 3-band parametric EQ, high pass, low pass and dual resonance filters, onboard De-Esser. Plus a new XL section affording even more tonal control with great options for saturation, harmonics and color.

AMEK Mastering Compressor

A compressor that hears music like you do. Like the original high-end hardware that inspired it, AMEK’s Mastering Compressor takes advantage of multiple True RMS detectors. This allows it to respond intelligently to changes in signal energy in the same naturally logarithmic way as the human ear, for stunningly transparent dynamic control.

Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A

One of the rarest and most powerful high end compressors ever built. In 2012, Vintage King released the hardware version of the Class A, limiting production to only 50 units! Through patented TMT modeling, Brainworx has created an exacting emulation of this legendary hardware that improves on the original with expanded features and much punchier VCA.


The ultimate clipping solution from Brainworx, featuring two operation modes. FET mode provides a smooth and natural sound, while Diode mode delivers edgy distortion. Including ceiling and Knee controls for a wide spectrum of studio-quality soft and hard clipping effects.

A powerful vocal tuning suite

bx_crispytuner and bx_crispyscale

A suite of incredibly versatile and easy to use tuning plugins that offer all the control and precision you’d expect from high-end vocal tuning plugins. Go from subtle pitch correction to experimental and extreme tuning effects.

A collection of saturators - full of character and mojo

Black Box Analog HG-2 MS

Colorful, frequency-selective tube saturation with M/S Processing. Sweet tubes and creamy-sounding transformers make mixes sound louder, bigger and punchier at the same peak level.

Looptrotter SAT2RATE

Plugin of a world-famous solid state saturation circuit that adds low order harmonics, while smoothly evening out sounds in a musical and ear-friendly way. Use SA2RATE 2 to significantly increase your RMS level without raising peaks (and without introducing the artifacts of overcompression and limiting) all while adding welcome analog character to your mixes.

Maor Appelbaum The Oven

A color box with endless mojo and unique controls, based on the original boutique hardware. This is not a typical EQ or saturator. It’s a colorful “Mojo Box” designed to "Cook, Bake & Broil" any sound source. Get irresistible “fully cooked” sounds out of this unique and inspiring mojo machine.
