Plugin Alliance intros bx_saturator by Brainworx

The Plugin Alliance has announced the release of bx_saturator, a multi-band M/S saturation and distortion effect plug-in by Brainworx.

Brainworx bx_saturator

The bx_saturator is an M/S & multi-band saturation tool which can be used for mastering, mixing and sound-design.

It offers a warm and subtle distortion which works wonders on individual signals and can even be applied to the stereo master channe in the M/S stereo model. Brainworx´ NEW “True-Split” crossover technology ensures that Mid and Side channels are perfectly in phase.

The bx_saturator belongs to the new „Brainworx Rock´n´Roll line“ of creative plugins. Technical excellence for the creative musician and engineer.

Although we offer a mono / multi-mono version of the plugin we consider the stereo M/S plugin the main version which will enable you to thicken and boost any stereo signal or mix in a more discrete way than ever.

The bx_saturator for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for the introductory price of $179 USD (regular $229 USD).

Brainworx announces bx_rockrack and Rock’n'Roll product line of plugins

Brainworx has announced bx_rockrack, the first plug-in in its new Rock’n'Roll line of plug-ins.

The first product to be presented in this video sneak preview shows the soon-to-be-released bx_rockrack Guitar Amp plugin, and reveals the totally new approach Brainworx has taken to model not only a guitar amplifier and a speaker, but to “digitally capture” the whole recording chain of the NEVE VXS 72 equipped Brainworx Studio in Germany.

Unlike most other digital guitar plugins bx_rockrack does not offer models of “57 amps, 68 cabinets and 273 microphones”, but 3 GREAT SOUNDING AMPS (clean, crunch, lead – modeled with the typical BX quality, of course), and for the first time ever the complete recording chains of some of the best real-world studios out there (read below)!

Each recording chain contains the guitar power amp, the speaker cabinet, the microphone(s), mic preamp and console EQ, plus even the post-production effects needed to produce walls-of-sound ready to be released on any major label production. And.. bx_rockrack is as easy to operate as a real guitar rack!

A guitar, a DI box and bx_rockrack, that´s all you need to rock & roll.
Yes, we’re serious about this statement.

The PRO version will even enable you to use your own, real guitar amplifier or preamp to record through the recording chains we have captured, and to play our modeled amps live through your speaker cabinet on stage.

The recording sound of international top studios – in your computer!

After just finishing to capture the Brainworx Studio we will be in Los Angeles at the end of April to capture the recording chain of one of the world’s best-known rock guitar sound studios, famous and responsible for many of your favorite rock & metal CDs! Stay tuned for more info soon.

Plugin Alliance Giveaway: The BIG 4 Bundle

Plugin Alliance

Dirk Ulrich of Brainworx recently launched the Plugin Alliance, a one-stop shop for several plug-in developers.

These currently include Maag Audio, Elysia, SPL, Vertigo, Brainworx, with plug-ins from Millenia, Chandler, Neve, and Charter Oak to be expected in 2012.

Easy license management, hassle-free installation, great sound and reliability. One license file for all your plugins, that´s it.

While I do use a few plug-ins that require a hardware dongle, I totally prefer not having to use them. I think it’s pretty exciting Plugin Alliance has created this software based system for managing all licenses of Plugin Alliance plug-ins in one place.

If you are interested in checking out how all this works, just head on over to the Plugin Alliance website and get some (or all) of the free plug-ins from Elysia (niveau filter), SPL (Free Ranger), and Brainworx (bx_cleansweep V2 & bx_solo).

But wait, there’s more!

Brainworx Vertigo VSC-2 Compressor plugin

Brainworx Vertigo VSC-2

Brainworx has released the Vertigo VSC-2, a quad discrete VCA compressor plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Modeled faithfully after Vertigo’s 6,000 $ flagship compressor. Vintage King calls it the ‘Mercedes of VCA Compressors’ on their website. Hear it to believe it.

Vertigo VSC-2 features

  • Precision – Its precision makes the VSC-2 a first choice for mastering applications and the stereo mix bus.
  • Tracking & Mixing – Although the VSC-2 was developed as a Stereo Bus Compressor each channel provides a complete set of controls which also makes the VSC-2 a dual mono “Must Have” in recording and mix situations.
  • Plugin – The VSC-2 plugin offers the same flexibility and precision in the stereo version, and to emulate the dual mono approach of the hardware we have developed a true mono version of the plugin as well.

The Vertigo VSC-2 is available to purchase for the introductory price of 199 EUR (20% off regular price of 249 EUR) until November 30th, 2011. Existing Brainworx customers can get an introductory price of up to 50% off.

Universal Audio debuts bx_digital V2 EQ and SPL Vitalizer MK2-T for UAD-2

Universal Audio has announced the release 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.

Brainworx bx_digital V2 EQ

The Brainworx® bx_digital V2 EQ is an award-winning mastering EQ, 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. For many engineers, this incredibly smooth-sounding processor is simply the ultimate software equalizer.

The SPL® Vitalizer MK2-T is an authentic emulation of the popular tube-based Vitalizer hardware unit, a longtime 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. As both a fixative and an enhancement tool, the Vitalizer MK2-T is a mixing must-have.

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 — two of the audio industry’s most respected brands — as part of a new UAD-2 SDK (software development kit).

Available for purchase via UA’s Online Store, the Brainworx bx_digital V2 EQ sells for $329 USD, and the SPL Vitalizer MK2-T sells for $249 USD.

The Brainworx bx_digital V2 EQ and SPL Vitalizer MK2-T plug-ins are now available as part of the new UAD Software v6.0 release, which includes the new Ampex® ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder Plug-In, as well as significant improvements to Pro Tools and support for Mac OS X Lion.
