Dangerous BAX EQ Collection
Dangerous BAX EQ Collection
Bax is just flawless
After reading many reviews on this EQ, and being in the market for a new M/S EQ, I gave this eq a test on a project I am currently working on . This is the first time that the true power of M/S processing really clicked for me! It's like the light of god just shined down on me. But for real, the simple way this EQ spreads apart the stereo field even with just the stereo gain when unlinked and set to Mid/Side is quite nice! the EQ on it reminds me of the Harrison 32C EQ just very cleaned and pleasing in every way! Hard to push this thing too far. Of course you can but it's not harsh at all. For such a simple tool, it goes really well with my BX EQ V3 and Manley Massive Passive on the master. I was even doing a shootout with Manley Massive Passive and Chandler Curve Bender and because I have BX EQ V3 and BAX, I felt the Manley was a better fit because of the sound you get when you hit the EQ at 30khz and turn on a sharp Q. o.0. So yeah, BAX!!! Get this! The sale is on and even if you have the Curve Bender, try this out on a project and see how it can have a place on every track. It's just that good! Really surprised but not really. Plugin Alliance and UAD at it again.
You have to try it to believe it! Sounds incredible!
Perfect master eq
It sounds and functions very great. But it definitely have limited purposes. I actually can't think of any thing else to use it for other than master buss filtering, and top/low end adjustments.
This sounds amazing. It is indeed smooth and the tonal quality is just fantastic. It sounds great on anything. Thanks for a great plug in.
It's maybe not right for every tune but is tough to beat for a small boosts and cuts in the lows where it can fatten or clean up beautifully. And the high shelf is really a thing to behold, sort of an invisible "lift" that I haven't found elsewhere in the digital realm.
This is my go-to for treating vinyl rips too, you can put a bit of sparkle back into old records without altering the character of the source too noticeably.
My only complaint is the GUI is a bit on the small side - even on my 21" screen it's kinda hard to read the frequency markings. I'd love if this and all the other UAD plug-ins were re-sizable... not everyone has a giant cinema display!
Have to Push It
I may need to give this more time since I just purchased it but seems to get nice sound from this plugin you need to push the output. In fact, I am Mastering hundreds of Reel to Reel tapes so I am purchasing many of the EQ plugins here. This sounds very nice indeed but I don't seem to be able to achieve the nice sound until I push the output to almost maximum. Other than the having to push it, it does sound very SMOOTH.
Wow, what a mastering EQ. Simple to use but - especially in MS - very powerful mastering "smile" EQ, which makes easy to "clean up" / "monoing" the bass area while shifting the highs smoothely. The integrated mastering low and high cuts seem to work "their own way" - allowing cutting as much as possible without loosing weight around.
I really love it on my mastering chain. It add the subtle things that some tracks needs to sounds like "yeah that's it!". The M/S mode is always on. I use it to make some hardcore techno mastering and that sounds perfect to give a bit of shiny feelings to absolute distorded tracks.
love this plugin
I love this plugin, I use it in all my productions, I also owned the real machine but now I prefer the versatility of the product and when I also need a clone pedal
very musical EQ, she likes the tight low-end, usually I use it on masterbuss. I really like the features high-pass / low pass and mid / side functions ... great plugin UAD
I dont mix without it. Once you have it, its impossible to not include it in every project in some way. UA clearly has some of the best plugins available. I had always wanted this one, but what sealed the deal was listening to Tychos album Epoch, the highs are simply butter. If you're on the fence about it, I say go for it, it will definitely enhance whatever you're working on.
Master Buss Mojo
Saw this being used in the hardware version. Made the mistake of trying the demo..yes loved it! Subtle but adds that control, weight and sparkle modern mixes need! Good stuff all round!
Amazing EQ for mastering
The EQ is a excellent mastering tool. It gives a very smooth top end and fullness in the low end.
The presets alone enhances the mixes a great deal. Maybe a minor tweak hear and there but this is a serious weapon to have in the UA arson!
Super smooth ! Great for final mix !
I use the bax EQ mainly for subtle boosting on the individual channel, it has some different fixed frequency than the other EQ that I like using for enhancement which a great addition to the pulteq, maag and pulteq ! it has a really smooth sound / soft sound which is perfect for final adjustments. I got it for only 54$ on special with 25$ voucher !!!
My favorite mastering EQ....!!
Great for that last bit of polish to the mix!
Great for minor low and high end tweaks. Very smooth sounding, also does not appear to colour the sound. In some cases preferable to the Manley Massive Passive.
Dangerous BAX EQ - The Last....But Not Least Great Plugin
When I first started Testing the Dangerous BAX EQ I felt like it could wait. We'll that didn't take long. It's a must have for after hundreds of hours mixing and you need to dial in the global sonic spectrum....THIS WILL DO IT! It will be the last plug on the mix. It will save you from having to brighten every channel or roll back all the bottom in the drums. You Can't Get A Bad Sound Out of This Baby. Really! It's just a matter of what you need. Everything Sounds Great! Oh, and the MS can create Open Spaces Never Heard Before. MUST HAVE - GREAT GEAR...Buy it! - GILROY

Briliant sound, modern
Whatever You do, cut or add, it will sound natural. Mids will stay stable, focused, pristine highs, excellent filters.
Bax EQ review
I like it so much especially at the end of my Master chain for some shine and low end.
I never had any lovely plugin luke BAX Eq.
I recommend it strongly to those who wants their mixes to be different.
