Universal Audio (UA) announced the release of the first new Direct Developer plug-ins for the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform: the Brainworx® bx_digital V2 EQ plug-in and the legendary SPL® Vitalizer MK2-T plug-in.
The Brainworx® bx_digital V2 EQ from UAD is an award-winning mastering EQ, named as the “Gear of the Decade” by Future Music Magazine. Universal Audio bx_digital V2 EQ offers three modes — M/S Mastering, M/S Recording, and L/R Stereo – with a unique “SixPack” Master Section, 11-band EQ with Shifter EQs to 22 kHz, and built-in M/S De-Esser, Dynamic EQ, and extensive metering options. An included bx_digital V2 Mono plug-in provides the same Mastering EQ – quality sound for mixing applications.
The SPL® Vitalizer MK2-T is an authentic emulation of the popular tube-based Vitalizer hardware unit, a longtime staple of top mixing and post-production engineers. Offering a patented technology for greater perceived loudness and clarity without unnatural artifacts, the Vitalizer provides independent Bass and Mid-Hi processing that works in both the time and frequency domains to effectively unmask overlapping sounds. As both a fixative and an enhancement tool, the Vitalizer MK2-T is a mixing must-have.
