Simple, Yet Powerful
Mastering requires a balanced, highly tuned processing chain, which can be both complex and expensive. The bx_masterdesk plug-in takes much of the guesswork out of the mastering process by combining several parameters into single controls with carefully chosen individual audio processors, each pre-tuned for easy and effective results.
The bx_masterdesk’s compressor section makes it easy to add energy to your masters without any pumping or unwanted artifacts. Inspired by classic designs, but transformed for the needs of modern DAW production, the compressor section features four different operating modes, each with its own attack and release rate for quick parallel compression textures.
The EQ section of the bx_masterdesk plug-in lets you dial in broad stroke tonal adjustments using an intuitive control set that resembles a guitar amp's tone stack. Simply turn the Bass, Mid, Treble, and Presence knobs to quickly and subtly tweak the EQ curve of your master.
For final seasoning, the bx_masterdesk plug-in sports two resonant filters, perfect for cleaning up low-end rumble and taming harsh transients. The bx_masterdesk’s precision metering will ensure your levels are always correct, while Brainworx’s renowned M/S processing lets you artfully shape the width of your masters.

OG ANALOG VIBES
Just getting around to working with this plug in and I had to write a review. The warm analog sound is absolutely beautiful. I paired it with the AMPEX ATR-102 and thought I was in the most expensive studio. Bless Up.... get this for sure. Simple.
Definitely in the analog vibe realm.
Widening and we work great, and the compressor and overall character seem to effortlessly add a bit more sweetness and smoothness to a mix that are—to my ears—more along the analog sound. It would be interesting to compare this to Aria sometime. I’m sure there would still be a difference, but it makes me wonder just how much.
So, so fantastic.
I love the premise that mastering has become overcomplicated. This wonderful plugin simplifies the entire process. I spend a lot less time overthinking it, and a lot more time listening. Great results, quickly. Highly, highly recommended. The only thing I'm not entirely sure of is whether it is worth buying the UAD version now that Plugin Alliance is selling the entire bx suite for $13 a month! But however you do buy it, buy it.
DEMO ***** !
Before running the updated licence file that resets the demos, I've tried this plugin and to my amazement, I've really liked it! I think it's gonna be my next purchase! Five stars!
One of my favorites!
I’ve normally used Ozone on my stereo master out which I like a lot. But since I started using this plugin it’s my first choice. The vibe that it adds to my mixes is undeniable. Really adds an analog thing that I crave. The compression is so musical. And the simple eq knobs really are effective. Very easy to use and get a great result with!
Dense, clear sound !!! Well "pumps up" and makes a "wide" sound. Recommend!
Fast and good
I demo’d this along with the ‘classic’ version against my current mastering solution (Ozone). The stereo widener is awesome and the compressor is very good. I could get pretty damn close to my Ozone master, but in a couple of minutes, instead of getting buried for half an hour tweaking hundreds of options. The cheaper classic version suffered from the lack of EQ and resonance filters compared to this full version of Masterdesk.
Thisbtain plugin became my go-to end of masterbus chain, for a polishede sound.
Easy & versatile
his plugin became my go-to end of masterbus chain, for a polishede sound.
I like the way I can very quickly adjust the global tonal balance, the limiter is quite transparent. It certainly increased my workflow speed. I love its deesser on the masterbus. I mix thru it and bounce it for my clients, and send an unlimited version to the mastering engineer, with the limited one as a reference.
Only 4 stars because of the parallel compression. Why does this knob starts at 84% ??
Exactly what I needed
I simply have not time to tweak master bus, all my time goes to composing and mixing. I leave the mastering job to the professionals anyways..
Excellent !! Best plugin for mastering !! Fine respondings, best feedback for every need !!
