Audio plug-in developer Brainworx has announced three new plugs at MusikMesse 2016. The first is the Panoramic EQ, with three parametric bell-curve filters with all the usual equalisation controls. The twist is its unique ability to boost or cut EQ at discrete pan positions in the stereo field. That means you can select what part of the stereo field you want to affect — allowing for some pretty full-on flexibility in both mixing and mastering applications.
The EQ Ranger Plus was announced, differing from the original EQ Rangers Vol. 1 by now having 181 EQ modules with a heap of genre-specific settings by Craig Bauer and Brainworx founder Dirk Ulrich.
Third is the new Opticom XLA-3 compressor, designed as a flavourful compressor that imparts a ton of ‘harmonically rich’ vibes onto whatever it processes. Brainworx says the XLA-3 is capable of smooth LA-2A sounds “with the additional benefits of even-harmonic distortion when needed.”
