Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2

The Dynamic Equalizer!

Overview

Is a dynamic equalizer an EQ or a compressor? The answer is yes and more! By being able to select certain frequency ranges and compress or expand them, a dynamic EQ allows you to both adjust frequencies like an EQ and control dynamics like a compressor. It also allows you to control how these frequencies and dynamics interact. In addition to providing powerful and flexible control over levels within certain frequencies, the bx_dynEQ V2 adds M/S processing capabilities so you can separately adjust your Mid and Side signals. Truly powerful!

The bx_dynEQ V2 is like a mini-bundle, in that it contains two separate plugins which run in 4 modes: bx_dynEQ mono, bx_dynEQ multi-mono (5.1, 7.1 etc.), bx_dynEQ stereo (L/R) and bx_dynEQ M/S (M/S stereo). The M/S mode introduces our unique "cross-feed" M/S feature, which allows Mid & Side signals to actually trigger each other!


The bx_dynEQ V2 is a lot more than just an EQ, and even more than a traditional dynamic EQ. It’s a truly unique, all-inclusive dynamics processor and EQ system. With an impressive selection of filter types- including our new Brainworx band-pass filters and our trademark Bass-Shift and Presence Shift filters- the bx_dynEQV2 is an engineer’s Swiss army knife.

    I just wanted you to know I have bought most of your plug-ins in the last few months. Your gear is truly amazing! Can't mix and master without them. Thanks so much for making these excellent tools. I am in the midst of some high-profile projects and am more than happy to spread the word.

    This is the most powerful tool for selective frequency level control and a real lifesaver. Last year I did the biggest "Mastered for Itunes" series for a german Artist - remastering more than 30 Albums that were recorded in between 1971 and 2004. Some of the Albums - especially the live albums - had some pretty harsh vocals with a lot of peaky parts.

    Because it’s M/S the Brainworx Dyn EQ 2 did a brilliant job controlling the vocals very effectively without sounding too obvious and touching the sides. I also used it very subtile on the low end of "Auf uns" - Germanys platinum selling Hymn of the Soccer World Cup 2014. The producer said - I don’t know what you did but the Bassdrum is much tighter, and the low end much clearer - well I just like it.

    The Brainworx Dyn EQ 2 changed the way I’m mastering quite dramatically because it takes the eq-ing where it’s needed and I don’t have to dip frequencies in the whole song or automate an EQ.

    The bx_dynEQ is the most essential thing you never even knew you needed. I hesitate to tell people how helpful it is. I’m almost afraid everyone will now be able to get kick-ass drum sounds and put me out of business.

  • Dylan "3-D" Dresdow

    I don't even think of this as an equalizer. The 'key' feature (of bx_dynEQ) allows for innovative interaction like I've never seen before and, more importantly, sounds great!

  • Ilpo Karkkainen

    bx_dynEQ is my go-to dynamic EQ. It's very versatile and I find it great for handling some challenging fixing tasks. I love the external sidechain feature.

  • Snake Newton

    bx_hybrid for me is the most useful plugin in the range for over all mix buss tweaking. The joystick controls for Lo and Hi are so simple to use and the cut and boost compliment each other perfectly, meaning that you can change the sound of a mix quite radically without over-EQing one part of the spectrum.
