bx_XL V2 gives mastering engineers the ability to create loud mixes. Using the M/S technology of Brainworx’s revolutionary bx_digital EQ, you can split the mid-channel into two bands (high and low), allowing you to control the level of three separate channels – side, mid-high, and mid-low. crank up the volume, radically improving the clarity of your mixes, with far fewer artifacts and far more energy.

The Crossover Frequency slider allows you to choose where the mid-bass section ends and mid-bass processing begins. Use it to isolate the kick drum and limit it differently than the rest of the mid signal: an extremely useful approach for mixes that require strong low-end, such as dance, rap, techno, and rock. Once the three channels of the bx_XL V2 have been mixed back into stereo, an additional limiter offers an adjustable level of the main output signal. This is a four-stage professional limiter that delivers loud and crystal-clear stereo mixes.

XL controls let you add warmth to your mixes by introducing third and fifth-order harmonics. A special filtering process prevents aliasing and protects your mixes from artifacts. This additional harmonic content increases perceived loudness without significantly increasing the output level of your music.

The bx_XL V2 also includes a three-band “psychoacoustic” volume maximizer and a variety of detailed level meters, making it an unrivaled sophisticated dynamics and volume control system. This is the first and only Mid/Side mastering limiter that allows you to individually listen to your Mid/Side signals and adjust phase using Phase-X crossover filters, allowing you to hear the finest details in your mixes.
