Brainworx BX XL V2 overview

  • 1Description

bx_XL V2 from Brainworx is a low latency, M/S mastering limiter whose main purpose is to make mixes loud while keeping them clear (undistorted). Many modern productions are loud while at the same time having no dynamics. The aim of the plug-in is to make tracks as loud as any major label production and less squashed than many of them.

The software converts stereo signals into M (mid/sum) and S (side/difference) signals and splits the M channel into two bands (high and low). This allows for limiting and leveling three individual channels to increase loudness and improve clarity of stereo mixes with much less distortion artifacts while still keeping the "punch."

Using a crossover frequency slider, the "MidLo" channel can be used to separate the bass drum and limit it different than the rest of the mid signal, perfect for all kinds of dance, rap, techno, and rock music
After the three channels have been mixed back together to a L/R stereo signal it runs through an additional final standard brickwall peak stop limiter which offers an adjustable master out level
Three-band "psycho-acoustic" loudness maximizer offers four automate-able settings with copy and paste functionality
Multiple solo, auto solo and link features enable the engineer to precisely adjust all stages of the mastering limiter
Thirty-two steps of undo/redo
Use as the final plug-in on the stereo master buss for mixing and mastering purposes or on any stereo bus/stereo sub group
Detailed level meters make for a sophisticated dynamics and loudness control system
