Universal Audio debuts "bx_digital V2 EQ" and "SPL Vitalizer MK2-T" on UAD-2 Platform
1st September 2011

Universal Audio has released of the first new Direct Developer plug-ins for the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform: the Brainworx bx_digital V2 EQ plug-in and the legendary SPL Vitalizer MK2-T plug-in.

The Brainworx bx_digital V2 EQ is a mastering EQ, that was named as the "Gear of the Decade" by Future Music magazine. The bx_digital V2 EQ offers three modes — M/S Mastering, M/S Recording, and L/R Stereo — with a unique "SixPack" Master Section, 11-band EQ with Shifter EQs to 22 kHz, and built-in M/S De-Esser, Dynamic EQ, and extensive metering options. An included bx_digital V2 Mono plug-in provides the same Mastering EQ-quality sound for mixing applications.

The SPL Vitalizer MK2-T is an authentic emulation of the popular tube-based Vitalizer hardware unit, a long-time staple of top mixing and post-production engineers. Offering a patented technology for greater perceived loudness and clarity without unnatural artifacts, the Vitalizer provides independent Bass and Mid-Hi processing that works in both the time and frequency domains to effectively unmask overlapping sounds.

These new UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins are noteworthy both in their unique sonic capabilities, as well as their being developed in their entirety for the UAD-2 platform by the software engineers at SPL and Brainworx as part of a new UAD-2 SDK (software development kit).
