Designed as a "finishing EQ," the Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection is the first and only authentic plug-in emulation of the hardware studio staple, available exclusively for UAD-2 DSP Accelerators and Apollo-equipped workstations.
Created by UA direct development partner Brainworx and in conjunction with Dangerous Music Digital, the Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection is designed as a powerful tool for shaping and enhancing the tonality and character of your music. The inspiration behind the Dangerous BAX EQ is Peter Baxandall's legendary 1950s EQ -- a tone control that has graced hi-fi systems around the world. Baxandall's simple yet-effective EQ sweetened up program material by simultaneously employing broad, open curves and gently sloping cuts.
The BAX EQ Collection contains two distinct plug-ins: the Dangerous BAX EQ Mix and the Dangerous BAX EQ Master -- a stereo version with Mid/Side processing capabilities not found on the original hardware.
Bob Muller, President of Dangerous Music, told us, "When designing the Bax EQ we asked ourselves, 'Does the world really need another equalizer? We wanted to do something special and unique, more of a tone control-style finishing EQ that would not alter the essential character of the audio. We just wanted to make it sound better while allowing the user to shape the sound in ways that are not possible with a conventional EQ. The Bax EQ plug-in is a wonderful rendering of the essential characteristics of the hardware design. The guys at Brainworx did a fantastic job!"
