    Black Box Analog Design HG-2

    [​IMG]

    Meet your mix buss’ best friend: The Black Box Analog Design HG-2.

    There’s good reason why celebrated mix engineers like Dave Pensado, Bob Horn, and Jack Douglas use the high-end Black Box Analog Design HG-2 tube processor on their mixes. The boutique stereo processor’s multiple, diverse tube circuits not only make tracks sound richer and fuller, they also make them sound louder, bigger and punchier at the same peak level. Much more than a mere distortion box, the HG-2 can impart subtle harmonic coloration and sparkle without compromising fidelity, or add brilliant saturation that totally changes the character of a sound.

    Now you can have that lush and vibrant sound in the Black Box HG-2 plugin. Brainworx collaborated with Black Box to model the HG-2’s sweet tubes and creamy-sounding transformers, and then added a host of powerful digital mods to greatly expand the processor’s tonal palette and range of saturation-based compression.

    Every type of tube colors sound differently. Every track and mix needs different coloration. HG-2 lets you create the perfect blend of tubes for the best-sounding mixes and individual tracks. Color your

    Features
    • Faithful emulation of the high-end Black Box Analog Design HG-2 tube processor, with additional digital controls—Input Gain, Density, Calibration, Air and Mix—providing a greatly expanded palette of tube flavors and saturation
    • Modeled transformers and separate gain controls for virtual 6U8A pentode and triode tubes add warmth, body and tube sweetness to thin mixes and sterile mono and stereo tracks
    • Parallel Saturation circuit selects one of two modeled 12AX7 tubes—one voiced more aggressively than the other—for adding tube radiance to scorching overdrive distortion on instrument and vocal tracks
    • Saturation Frequency selector adds generated 12AX7 harmonics to only low or high frequencies or across the entire audio spectrum
    • Calibration menu mimics an internal trim adjustment in the HG-2 hardware to give high frequencies Dark, Normal or Bright coloration
    • New, continuously variable Density control boosts gain equally for virtual pentode and triode tubes while making a compensatory adjustment to output gain
    • New, continuously variable Air control adds silvery sparkle and sweetness above 10 kHz
    • New, continuously variable Input Gain control simultaneously trims gain for all active virtual tube circuits: Saturation, pentode and triode
    • New, continuously variable Mix control adjusts wet/dry balance, preserving detail and punch


    Special Introductory Offer
    Through Feb 28th, get pure tube power in plugin form for only $149 (Regular $299,00)

    Yeah just demo'd them and liked Black Box plugin on first look.
    Never been a fan of "plugins with tubes" lol but actually quite like this one. Pretty good for adding colour and thickness etc.
    Couldn't see whether they named a price yet which always worrying.
    They often seem to come out with random prices like 6 grand or something stupid to start with but hoping maybe it might be fairly priced :dunno:
    This Black Box Analog Design seemed interesting also :yes::bow:

    Hey Guys!

    Can you use your other "non legit" plugin alliance stuff together with this if you buy it? I'm on mac and saw on an other thread that you could place your legit license on an usb stick or something. But now I read that you only get the installer for the HG-2 via their installation manager so I wonder if there might some kind of conflicts rendering my other stuff unauthorized?

    I tried the demo and have previously bought the VSM-3 as it isn't cracked on OSX and it's an incredible plugin. I have the rest of the current cracked PA bundle for OSX and run all of those off a usb. When you install the demo/buy this plugin and download the installer, you can run it without it detecting any cracked plugins. Install the plugin, unblock your network firewall like Little Snitch or whatever it is you use, open your DAW and open the plugin. It asks you to register, deselect 'register all plugins', and select register online. Log in to your account and it will register it through the process. Re-enable your firewall for all your other 'shit' and carry on your merry way :)

    It does not work...... you can not have both cracked and legit activated.

    I think the plugin alliance pack will come as soon as the bx_subsynth (current in beta demo mode) fx plugin is released which is 10 times more powerful! :metal:

    This would probably be great. I've started running my 2 bus through an analog mixer, and run it through an ART MDC 2001 which supposedly uses the same VCA's as an SSL (compressing very lightly) and an ART MPA Pro II as inserts on the mixers master bus and it really added something to the sound. I don't run anything on the 2 bus in the DAW anymore which really freed up some CPU.
    I'd assume this imparts sort of a similar thing in terms of harmonics and analog warmth.
