Brainworx bx_XL Released
Brainworx announced the release of their new M/S Mastering Limiter, bx_XL.
Its main purpose is to help you get your mixes loud while keeping them clear (undistorted). “As loud” as any major label production and less “squashed” than many of them, Brainworx says.
bx_XL is designed to internally convert stereo signals into M (mid / sum) and S (side / difference) signals and to split the M channel into 2 bands (hi & lo). This way you can limit and level 3 individual channels to increase loudness and improve clarity of stereo mixes – with less distortion artifacts and while keeping much more “punch” than any other limiter system, according to the company.
Via the Crossover Frequency slider the “MidLo” channel can be used to separate the bass drum and limit it different than the rest of your mid signal. This is designed for all kinds of dance, rap, techno and rock music.
After the 3 channels of bx_XL have been mixed back together to a regular L/R stereo signal internally the signal runs through an additional (fourth!) final standard brickwall peak stop limiter which offers an adjustable master out level.
bx_XL also has a 3 band “psycho-acoustic” loudness maximizer built-in and offers 4 automatable settings with copy & paste functionality. All these features combined with 32 steps of Undo / Redo and various detailed Level meters form the software's dynamics & loudness control system.
