The bx-opto Pedal plug-in from Brainworx is a slimmed-down version of the company's bx_opto optical compressor. It brings the unique characteristics, colors, and features of light-dependent circuitry to your DAW with a simpler interface and a guitar-pedal feel.
Far from being transparent, this plug-in lets you gently level or completely squash your sound with harmonically pleasant results. The bx_opto Pedal not only delivers the musical quality produced by the light-dependent circuitry of its sidechain, but opens up new sonic possibilities with its variable Speed knob that simulates changes in speed at which the photo cell in an optical compressor reacts to light. This gives you control over release times that shape transients, in a manner that is unmatched by hardware optical compressors.
Featuring a Density knob for combined control over the amount of peak reduction and make-up gain, a Trim knob to tweak your gain staging, and a guitar-pedal style power button, the bx_opto Pedal can double as a gain pedal that lets you add extra color when needed.
Simplified version of Brainworx's bx_opto optical compression plug-in with the same light-dependent circuitry – great on guitars, basses, vocals and drums
Not a transparent compressor - gently level or completely raze your sound with harmonically pleasant results
All-in-one sidechain input/makeup gain with Density control knob
