bx_console E is the new channel strip by Brainworx

Brainworx is a global leader in the development and marketing of software products in the audio production field. The company became known for their high-quality plugins such as digital V3, control V2, dynEQ V2, limiter and many others. Their latest instalment is the new bx_console E, a channel strip plug-in that emulates E Series SSL with G Series features.

The 72-channel emulation of the SSL E Series console features compressor/limiter, expander/gate, four-band parametric EQ, and wide-ranging high- and low-pass filters. The signal routing on the plugin is pretty much the same that can be found on the original hardware console. According to Brainworx, this plugin has a relatively low CPU load level, which will make all users extremely happy.

In comparison to the old channel strip by Brainworx, the new E version has a lot of modern functions such as a dry/wet control, an optional secondary release time (REL2) control and an adjustable HPF (High Pass Filter) for the compressor’s sidechain.


The bx_console E plug-in is available in all major formats via Plugin Alliance. Everyone that is interested in purchasing the VST should do that as soon as possible, since the price is reduced to $179 until August 31, 2017, and it will rise to $299 after that.  If you still aren’t sure, you can get a fully-functional, 14-day trial if you register for a free Plugin Alliance account HERE.
