[Musikmesse] Brainworx Millennia TCL-2 and NSEQ-2
Last plug-ins introduces by Plugin Alliance at Musikmesse, the Millennia TwinCom compressor and NSEQ-2 EQ modeled by Brainworx.
Universal Audio UAD-2 and Apollo interface users already know the Millennia NSEQ-2 plug-in, for it was launched on this platform back in 2013 (see this news). The plug-in is now available in VST 2/3, AU, AAX DSP and Native, AudioSuite and RTAS formats for all DAWs on Mac OS X and Windows.
The stereo parametric EQ plug-in reproduces the Class A Twin Topology, Brainworx even modeled the full 300V tube and discret JFET solid-state signal paths as well as the non linear behaviour of the hardware. The plug-in features 4 frequency bands between 20 Hz and 20 kHz with Q from 0.4 to 4.
The Brainworx model includes new features, including a Mid/Side mode for mastering purposes as well as a Link mode for true stereo operation and an output gain.
Last, Plugin Alliance launches another Millennia model by Brainworx, namely the TCL-2 that reproduces the TwinCom stereo opto-compressor/limiter, also equipped with a dual tube and JFET topology, with a few additions by the developer.
