Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2 Plug-in
Delivered In Minutes!

Your Go-to Mixing Multitool!

Part compressor, part gate, part EQ, the Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2 plug-in is tonal Swiss Army knife we're sure you'll find endless good uses for. The basic idea behind bx_dynEQ is to apply a filter or EQ setting dynamically in response to incoming signal. Using its extensive controls set, you can set what frequency range bx_dynEQ is looking for and exactly what it will boost or cut. Whether it's de-essing vocals, pumping up kick drums, or adding selective compression to fill out a weak track, bx_dynEQ will help you get the job done.

Brainworx bx_dynEQ Dynamic EQ Plug-in at a Glance:
  • Preset buttons streamline common processing functions
  • Inverse Mode offers advanced sound-shaping possibilities
  • Multiple plug-ins cover mono, stereo, and mid-side modes
Preset buttons streamline common processing functions

There's really no better way to say it than this: bx_dynEQ can be a pretty tricky plug-in to fully wrap your head around. You can use one instance to pull a particularly shrill sound out of a vocal track that only sound bad when the vocalists gets too loud, and then turn around and use another instance to make an ordinary kick drum sound big the way you think of gods as big. Fortunately, the bx_dynEQ's preset buttons make finding the right settings for compression, de-essing, and upward expansion (boom!) easy. So don't worry, Brainworx really did design the bx_dynEQ dynamic equalizer to be as accessible as possible.

Inverse Mode offers advanced sound-shaping possibilities

New for the V2 version of bx_dynEQ, Inverse Mode lets you apply an EQ setting to your track and then unapply it when the level trips the threshold. Essentially, this allows bx_dynEQ to act like an expander or gate, but instead of dropping the entire level of the sound below the threshold, it only cuts a defined frequency range. This makes bx_dynEQ great for masking background hum or rumble in kick drum tracks, without either running the risk of clipping its transients or sucking all of the impact out of the sound. And when you combine this capability with the rest of bx_dynEQ's controls, you can come up with some pretty sweet sounding effects.

Multiple plug-ins cover mono, stereo, and mid-side modes

Rather than pack the whole shebang into a single plug-in (needlessly wasting processor power), Brainworx designed three separate versions of bx_dynEQ to provide you with mono, traditional stereo, and mid-side stereo production options. The mono and stereo versions are pretty straightforward, but the mid-side version offers you some pretty unique functions. For instance, you can link the thresholds of both the center and stereo channels, providing a uniform overall sound. Alternatively, you can use the threshold of one of bx_dynEQ's channels to trigger the other. That lets you pull off some pretty cool ducking tricks, such as using the center channel kick drum to pull some of the low mids out of the stereo channel to open up the sound.

Brainworx bx_dynEQ Dynamic EQ Plug-in Features:
  • A dynamically activated 1-/2-band equalizer that lets you tackle many common mixing issues
  • Modes for compression, de-essing, and upward expansion make basic operation simple
  • Inverse Mode also covers frequency dependent expansion and gating
  • Select from low-shelving, high-shelving, peak-bands, bandpass filters, highpass, lowpass, bass-shift, and presence-shift EQ modes for both the main mix and the sidechain
  • Includes mono, stereo, and mid-side versions of the plug-in
  • Mid-side processing include cross threshold triggering and stereo width control
  • Compatible with AAX Native, AU, AudioSuite, RTAS, TDM, Venue 32-bit, VST2, and VST3 plug-in hosts on your Mac or Windows PC
You never know what kind of great uses you'll find for the Brainworx bx_dynEQ plug-in!
