Plugin Alliance has introduced the bx_console G, a channel strip audio effect plugin that emulates the legendary British G Series mixing console used on countless hit records and by top-tier engineers and marquee artists around the globe.

Plugin Alliance Brainworx bx console G

bx_console G includes 72 distinct channels of G series British console charm, delivering tight filtering and smooth compression in the true spirit of analog tone.

Using patent-pending Tolerance Modeling Technology, this plugin recreates the natural channel-to-channel variation of components found in analog hardware, which imparts the sonic depth that engineers have come to love.

bx_console G adds to the growing line of Brainworx TMT channel strip plugins that revolutionize the in-DAW production experience, invoking the behavior and sound of real-world studio consoles.

bx_console G features

  • Models the classic British G Series mixing console, offering 72 different channels.
  • Full-featured channel strip includes a Compressor/Limiter, Expander/Gate, 4-band parametric EQ, and wide-ranging High Pass and Low Pass filters.
  • Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT, Patent Pending) simulates channel-to-channel variances in electronic components for the most realistic analog sound.
  • “Orange” and “Pink” EQ revisions can be swapped independently per channel with the click of a mouse.
  • EQ can be placed before or after the Dynamics section (Compressor/Limiter and Expander/Gate) in the audio path, or routed to the Dynamics’ sidechain.
  • Frequency ranges for the High Pass and Low Pass filters and the Pink EQ’s two midrange bands can be independently shifted by a factor of three, greatly expanding tone-shaping capabilities.
  • High Pass and Low Pass filters can be placed in the audio path or the Dynamics’ sidechain.
  • Compressor/Limiter features continuously variable Threshold, Ratio, wet/dry Mix and two-stage Release controls; a dedicated High Pass filter; and a toggle for Auto- and Fast-attack times.
  • Swap G and E Series Compressor VCAs independently per channel with the click of a mouse.
  • Expander/Gate features continuously variable Threshold, Range and Release controls; two alternate Threshold ranges; and an Auto-/Fast-attack toggle.
  • Gate features continuously variable Hysteresis control that prevents on-off chattering when input signal level fluctuates around the threshold.
  • Expander Invert function lets you hear just the portion of signal that will be gated or expanded, helping you quickly set the most effective threshold.
  • Dynamics section can be keyed by an external sidechain input signal.
  • Continuously variable THD control adds colorful saturation independently per channel.
  • Continuously variable Virtual Gain control adds simulated analog noise independently per channel for extra vintage vibe.
  • Comprehensive metering and monitoring facilities incl. M/S solo features.
  • EUCON parameter mapping provided for Avid controllers, including the S6 control surface.

The bx_console G plugin for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is on sale for the intro price of $179 USD . Regular price is $299 USD. A fully-function 14-day demo version is available.
