Brainworx releases bx_dynEQ


Brainworx has announced the release of bx_dynEQ, a plug-in bundle containing bx_dynEQ mono, bx_dynEQ stereo, bx_dynEQ M/S and bx_boom!

bx_dynEQ bx_dynEQ

The concept of the bx_dynEQ is a new approach to dynamic EQ-ing, using innovative M/S features to allow for results not possible with any other EQ, according to Brainworx.

The stereo version introduces the unique "cross-feed" M/S feature, which allows M & S signals to actually "trigger" each other. An selection of filter types, including the new Brainworx band-pass filters and the trademark Bass-Shift and Presence Shift filters, make this EQ an engineers swiss knife. Preset knobs in the GUI enable the engineer to find good starting points fast and easy, despite the complexity.

bx_dynEQ is not only an EQ, not even only a dynamic EQ, but a true dynamics processor and an EQ system – at the same time.

bx_boom! is actually the ONE bx_dynEQ preset demonstrating the M/S features of this EQ. Stripped down to only 2 parameters and an intuitive graphic design this tools enables you to attenuate or boost the impact of your bass drum sound - in a final mix or a complete stereo drum-loop.

bx_boom! is only available as a true stereo plug-in due to the M/S nature of the beast. bx_dynEQ features a "boost" preset, though, that comes close to what bx_boom! does.

bx_dynEQ & bx_boom! can be used to help you in many different situations:

  • De-Essing (individual tracks, subgroups and master channel).
  • Dynamic EQing of mono-, stereo- and M/S signals.
  • Bass-drum tuning in final mixes and drum groups.
  • Dynamic stereo-widening using the internal M/S features.
  • M/S compression and limiting.
  • Sound-Design.

Main features of bx_dynEQ:

  • 1-band and 2-band dynamic EQ.
  • Mono, multi-mono and stereo (L/R & M/S).
  • BRAINWORX critically acclaimed filters.
  • Complete set of filter types for both, main audio path and sidechain: Low & high shelving, peak bands, band-pass filters, high-pass, low-pass, bass-shift, presence-shift.
