    Yeah same for me, I'll test it once it's the definitive version that comes out. I can wait a few days rather than go with the public beta. By then the vouchers will probably be there, hopefully.

    Haven't used any of Brainworx earlier plugins. Why is this such "big news"? Are they usually good or?

    Really ? I haven't tried it but if it's the case that would be a shame really, and a bit of a surprise from this company that usually offers excellent plugins. Marketing isn't really news from them, they rely on it a lot like any "big" company, but usually the product is on par with what they put forward on the advertising...Well I'll try this and check if it's just words...

    Brainworx's lost me when they released a snake oil plugin called bx-refinement. I could replicate exactly what it does using just a single band of my DAW's EQ and a touch of compression...They still sell it for 199USD.

    Honestly, I've lost my faith in all these big names of the plugin industry...They mostly sell pre-packed fx chains with a nice "analog" GUI.

    the plugin itself sound ok.. , but

    in the same interface we have multip comp style with no control of attack release no sidechain , compression parralel knob ,deesser , saturation knob , kind notch filters , a 3band tone control , a mono maker and a stereo ehancer , dr metering

    analog mastering desk it's a fancy call when it comes to mastering plug-in that does multitask there's a bunch with which to compare...
    no hate here i still find use for vsm-3 or bx digital plugins in my mastering chain tho'..

    for me this gadget like girls in the commercial said it's so "easy" to a have a kind of master bounce ready for clients , muscians and producers, it's not appropriate for sound engineers who like to control what they do like me.

    Definitely agree, I'm obessed with having options myself when I use my plugs, so far I've loved BX exactly for that (their dyneq, Bxdigital, also Bx Subfilter/subsynth are cool that way). And I agree they have been going down the "emulation" path a lot lately, but actually what I enjoy about the things they emulate is usually we both get quality emulations and a lot options added next to the original unit they emulate (weither it's with their 2500 delay, or their numerous console emulations (latest I got ssl g is very nice that way), some compressors, and also indeed the Black Box which is very cool).
    So I was hoping for similar results with this latest offering, but I guess they can't all be winners. Still I'll give this one a try when the final version comes out...

    Lol, I don't need to try it to answer : not at this price.

    At 99$ if it's really good I might get it.
