Simple, Yet Powerful

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.

Four Compressors

Four Compressors

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.

Easy EQ

Easy EQ

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.

Final Touches

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.

Wow.. I have to say this plug in just blew my mind. It is probably the single most powerful plug in I have the way it shapes the sound. This as last in the mastering chain just does incredible things. Combine this with the Cambridge EQ, a tape machine plug in like the Studer or oxide tape or my preferred ATR-102 and you will impress people, if your mix is good to start with it will now be amazing. Well worth the price! Essential.

It Realy Sounds great!

Masterdesk is so fast and easy to use. Each module is of excellent quality. The Compressor is Fantastic. While the EQ Bands are limited they work in most cases and when the don't it's easy enough to put your EQ of choice before it in the chain. Same thing with the DSer.

Just What I Wanted

I previously used Ozone for mastering and I would often take an incredibly long time trying to perfect my tracks. Bx_masterdesk is so much easier and gives me better results in a fraction of the time. Love it!

All things mastering

Whether you’re just an amateur looking to max your mix to the standard loudness or a pro looking for a swiss-army knife at the mastering stage, this is for you.
It’s simple to use and yet very detailled. It will take some doing, but this plugin will find its way in your mastering chain every time, for any style. It truly is a killer solution.

Fantastic plugin for a "novice" master.

This plugin makes ALL the difference when it comes to a laymen creating a master track. Of course a true mastering pro will provide a much better final mix, but for a one-stop shop plugin this is absolutely fantastic. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard how well this plugin does a final master. There are websites where you can submit a mix and it will spit back a "master" but this is far better and you have much more control.

Is this good enough for a top-40 mix? Probably not. Is it good enough to provide polish, sheen, and a great demo mix? Absolutely! I know almost nothing about mastering and this plugin has really helped to provide a headache-free experience when it comes to creating a good-enough master.

Personally I've found the best results by throwing a Fairchild 670 under this plugin for a bit of glue, bit this alone will certainly do the trick. Get it!
