Easily master your projects with three simple controls — Volume, Foundation, and Tone

In three quick steps, the bx_masterdesk Classic plug-in will give you a professional-sounding master. First, turn up the Volume control. Next, set the Foundation knob to adjust the low end, and finally, tweak the Tone knob to season the source to taste. Refine even further with one-knob solutions like Stereo Enhance to add width, and THD to inject grit and character.

Visual Feedback

Visual Feedback

There's a fine line between making a master loud, and overly squashing its dynamic range, and with many of the mastering plug-ins on the market, it’s easy to overdo it. But thanks to the large, centrally located Dynamic Range meter on bx_masterdesk Classic, you can always keep a watchful eye, so you’ll know to apply just the right amount of loudness.

instant gratification

thanks UAD for giving me a big discount for this one. I got it free and I tried it on one of my older mastered tracks and had instantly better results.

Like magic

This plugin is not like magic it IS magical. For quality speed mastering of demos I don’t think it has a peer. Optimum volume attainment with free feeling (spacious) limiting. Uncanny stereo placement and with subtle incremental changes this is now my go to tool. Brilliant!

Simple, useful

A very simple to use and great sounding tool for making quick and consistent masters. Much better than just smashing with an rms limiter. Thanks!

Best simplest mastering plugin

I still don’t believe how this tiny plugin can handle such powerful mastering! The knobs are easy and intuitive. You get the most out of this plugin. One of my favorite now!

Straight forward

I’ve used this plugin in two different mastering sessions now and I’m impressed with the ease of use and the glue it provides so transparently. I like the madterdesk best when applied gently. It brings Musial details forward without sounding squashed. The meter appears to steer the user towards -8 to -6dB - don’t let that fool you, each song has its own loudness sweet spot.
Now that I have the masterdesk, I don’t think I’ll be using my Slate FX-G anymore... Keep the good work up, UA and braiworx!

Quick and dirty mastering

Though not a fully fledged mastering tool, the masterdesk can get round of the problem of delivering rough mixes to clients with minimal fuss. It's fun to use and you can get a result in a minute or two. The metering is useful and I think the stereo enhancement is really great. Great plug, would reccomend to anyone.

Masterdesk classic

Outstandingly well put together, I always wanted a plug in thats very easy and straight forward for pre finished touch. Working with lots of tracks after cleaning tracks making adjustments to tracks to preserve the tracks original sound. I needed plug in that's going to allow me to work faster. Well dun plugin makers, as a musician I am counting on good uad plugins. Thanks
