Plugin Alliance has been in touch to tell us that they are shipping two new Brainworx plug-ins - the Brainworx bx_2098 EQ, modeled after the iconic Amek 9098 EQ, and the Brainworx bx_delay 2500. Here's the details in their own words...
The Brainworx bx_2098 plugin is modeled after the iconic Amek 9098 EQ. The original, Neve-designed hardware has been reproduced in stunning detail by the Brainworx team. Now you can harness the power and tone of this classic British EQ in your own mixing and mastering sessions.
There will be a full-blown 9098 TMT console plugin later, and existing users will be able to upgrade for a minimum fee. No release dates to be announced yet, but we´ll let you know about it in time for sure.
Brainworx have added some truly innovative plugin-only features to the bx_2098 EQ updating it for the modern producer. Using patent-pending TMT (Tolerance Modeling Technology) you can use up to 20 truly varied instances across your mix. In addition to this the bx_2098 features full M/S control and a dedicated THD parameter.
Full Brainworx M/S capabilities mean the bx_2098 EQ is ready for modern sessions. Manipulate the Mid and Side information in your audio completely independently to create width and punch. Control your critical low end mix with the famed Mono Maker and isolate the Mid/Side information to focus on your processed sound.
By utilizing the Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) from our bx_console products we have created an EQ that allows you to use 20 truly unique channels across your mix. When applying these different models to stereo versions of the plugin you can induce serious width to your sounds whilst simultaneously imparting the real character of analog hardware.
Some EQs lack character and tone but the bx_2098 EQ employs several features that ensure you get the real analog experience. The THD parameter is perfect for dialing in just the right amount of controlled distortion. This is faithful to the original circuitry we modeled and helps you reproduce results until now only possible with real hardware.
The bx_delay 2500 has been developed by Brainworx from the ground up and features a clear, intuitive interface that allows you to get to the delay effect you want quickly. Its glitch-free delays are perfect for automated delay time changes for stunning non-static sounds.
bx_delay 2500 has everything you need to create everything from simple delay patches to experimental soundscapes and crazy cool beats. This is your new go-to delay.
By adding an extensive suite of effects to bx_delay 2500 Brainworx have created the perfect environment in which to create wild delay patches. Distortion, chorus and ducking have all been included to sculpt your perfect delay effect.
Using the now famous Brainworx M/S processing you can not only increase the width of any patch but critical low frequencies can also be controlled. The Mono Maker allows you to ensure everything below a specified frequency is perfectly in the center of the mix while your stereo image is left intact.
