Brainworx has announced the release of a public beta of bx_XL, a low latency M/S mastering limiter for Windows and Mac.
It separates any stereo signal into M & S signal and splits the M signal into 2 bands. bx_XL can separate the bass drum (!) in any stereomix and master it independent from the rest of the stereo mix to get your mixes LOUD and still punchy.
With bx_XL you can get your mixes as loud as any major label release without the artifacts usually distorting your masters. Or you can go to the extreme.. and beyond!
A 14 day public beta version of bx_XL is now available to download for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS). The full version will be available to purchase on 20 October, 2010.
