Brainworx Announces bx_console G

The most popular recording console in history is getting emulated.

For those who have ever wanted to mix on a large-format analog console, Brainworx is bringing the most popular recording console in history, the SSL G, to their ever-expanding collection of mixing-console emulations with the bx_console G. Now you can experience the three-dimensional analog sound of a high-end, large-format console right in your DAW. Of course, there will also be plenty of mods available, making the bx_console G a classic-contemporary hybrid mixer updated with modern controls.

The features will include the following:

  • Models the classic British G Series mixing console, offering 72 different channels
  • Full-featured channel strip includes a Compressor/Limiter, Expander/Gate, 4-band parametric EQ, and wide-ranging High Pass and Low Pass filters
  • Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT, Patent Pending) simulates channel-to-channel variances in electronic components for the most realistic analog sound
  • “Orange” and “Pink” EQ revisions can be swapped independently per channel with the click of a mouse
  • EQ can be placed before or after the Dynamics section (Compressor/Limiter and Expander/Gate) in the audio path, or routed to the Dynamics’ sidechain
  • Frequency ranges for the High Pass and Low Pass filters and the Pink EQ’s two midrange bands can be independently shifted by a factor of three, greatly expanding tone-shaping capabilities
  • High Pass and Low Pass filters can be placed in the audio path or the Dynamics’ sidechain
  • Compressor/Limiter features continuously variable Threshold, Ratio, wet/dry Mix and two-stage Release controls; a dedicated High Pass filter; and a toggle for Auto- and Fast-attack times
  • Swap G and E Series Compressor VCAs independently per channel with the click of a mouse
  • Expander/Gate features continuously variable Threshold, Range and Release controls; two alternate Threshold ranges; and an Auto-/Fast-attack toggle
  • Gate features continuously variable Hysteresis control that prevents on-off chattering when input signal level fluctuates around the threshold
  • Expander Invert function lets you hear just the portion of signal that will be gated or expanded, helping you quickly set the most effective threshold
  • Dynamics section can be keyed by an external sidechain input signal
  • Continuously variable THD control adds colorful saturation independently per channel
  • Continuously variable Virtual Gain control adds simulated analog noise independently per channel for extra vintage vibe
  • Comprehensive metering and monitoring facilities incl. M/S solo features
  • EUCON parameter mapping provided for Avid controllers, including the S6 control surface
